Is it ever a good day to blow up a whale?


Flashback Wednesday takes us back to a sunny day on a beach in Portland Oregon. The year is 1970. For some reason it was the state’s Highway Division that was responsible for getting rid of a dead whale that had washed up on the beach. Somebody thought it was a good day to blow up a whale so they brought in the dynamite. Lots of dynamite.

Behold the cautionary tale of the exploding whale…

Thanks to The Geek Pad for reminding me of this gem.
