Um. UM. WE HAVE WHALES. THERE ARE WHALES IN NEW YORK CITY'S WATERS.
Yes, all caps. No, I'm not joking. Recorders placed 13 miles off New York City's coastline picked up humpback whale noises.
Are you fucking kidding me? We have whales?? The article points out that "there are many important and wonderful discoveries to be made about the living world right here, right in our back yards.” Like....global warming? Or changing tides? McCain postponing the first debate? There has got to be some calamitous scientific explanation for the presence of whales around New York City. Like...this isn't right. We're all gonna die. Jake Gyllenhaal and Dennis Quaid are going to have to save us all. Again. This isn't right.
But it's so cuuuute! Look at Shamu. Say it with me now: Awwwwz.
