    Ok, so I can try to cripple your boat, chase you down, prop foul you, and throw stink bombs at you, over and over again. But if I ever see you on the see attacking me I cant ram you?

    The meal in front of me at Ganso Kujiraya in Tokyo is enough to turn the stomach of even casual conservationists. They would find little to trouble the conscience in the bowls of steaming rice and miso soup, or the side dishes of mitsuba leaves and radish pickles. But the centrepiece, seven perfectly rectangular slices of glistening ruby-red whale flesh, transforms this otherwise unremarkable Japanese dish into what is arguably the worlds most politically sensitive lunch.

    well if they didnt, why would they be hiding behind scientific research?

    I don't like the tactics that the protesters resort to with the harassment of the whaling ships.

    I don't like the fact that the Japanese are whaling for meat and use a technicality to get away with it.

    Both are wrong.

    The simple solution might be to change the treaty and not allow the whale meat to be sold in markets.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    1- I have no idea

    2- I'm not a whalologist, so I have no idea what they still don't know

    3- so it doesn't go to waste?
