Al, what do you know about whales?
« on: September 05, 2014, 0043 UTC »
Specifically, their oil content.

I'm thinking we could solve the energy crisis by powering Sterling engines with whale oil to generate electricity.

The decades long ban on whaling has restored strategic whale oil stocks. Whales reproduce on their own, they're a renewable resource. We could genetically modify them for maximum oil production. We can then use the whale oil to power giant Sterling engines for all of our electrical needs.

The meat could be used to feed the poor. Everyone wins.

Float it by your Cal-Tech pals and see what they think.

For a crazy plan like that to work, it would have to be just a fluke.

Why we'll be up to our necks in flukes! One of them will surely work.

Ummm, this seems to be a private conversation, so excuse me for "spouting". But didn't you see what happened in Star Trek IV-The Voyage Home? Mobies from hell gonna wreck the whole world....are y'all (insert colorful metaphor) crazy?

Just on Thursday's around the equinoxes. The rest of the year we work on cold fusion.

Al, I understand paleontologists recently desecrated your Uncle Dread's grave in Argentina. Time to fire up that war surplus V2.

These in-depth discussions give us a sense of porpoise.

They still call me a Whale at the local Casino, and try to wring all the "oil" they can out of me.

I saw a news blurb earlier today. California blue whales have recovered historically high levels. We could set up harpoon batteries on the bluffs and cliffs from Pacific Palisades to Humbolt County to harvest the critters. Why we'll corner the market on whale oil!

BTW, what happened to those genetically modified shrimp you turned loose off the coast of Florida?

Speaking of whales there is a signal on 4459 USb that others are identifying as a "whales" station. Time 09/07/2014 at 0206z, just above the noise here in northern Ohio.

Thanks myteaquinn !!! I'm hearing that right now at 0226 UTC and it sounds like the mobies from hell are on their way to make bacon of those who would set up harpoon batteries on the bluffs and cliffs from Pacific Palisades to Humboldt County :o And someday those cold fusion experiments will turn out to be the solution to global warming! Al, I'm with you when Whale Armageddon arrives to take us to the creator ;D

Don't get hysterical, Skip. The sharknados will get them on the beaches. We have Tara Reid on our side.

Al, your great grandfather, the Emperor Norton, would be so disappointed. There was a man of vision.

Whales in the Great Lakes? Hmmm..... I'm seeing the potential for profit growing exponentially. Killer whales will eat the silver carp all the fisheries biologists are shaking in their waders about.

No doubt about it, whales are the wave of the future.

So, you have been researching my ancestry? Well, I just saw the "Trailer Park Boys" on late night TV, and the family resemblance to you was painfully obvious.
