DailyDirt: Dead Body Removal

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

There's the old saying that "when all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail." But how is it that when you have big dead animals to get rid of, people reach for dynamite? Clearly, people just like to blow things up. By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Yeah all I saw of that last title on the first read was "Obliterate with Explosives". That would have been an awesome job. How could you get bored obliterating something different every day? Then I saw the animal part, and was not nearly as hopeful. Alas I really need some one to call me back for a job interview.

      Re: boredom...

      After a while, I'd guess all explosions start to look the same... unless the blasts just got bigger and bigger until you were working on nuclear bombs. But maybe I'm wrong. Good luck on those job searches -- you probably don't want to mention your penchant for explosives too early on in your interviewing process, though.

    What I want to know is

    Why was the Oregon Department of Transportation given the responsibility of getting rid of the whales. Perhaps it is because roads are big and whales are big therefore we should give the ODOT explosives to deal with the problem?

    the oregon whale

    is why the internet was invented. There is no greater story than the orgeon whale. The cheers, then screams as the run for terror, as the blown bits of whale inevitable interaction with gravity, and the splooshing sounds as whale bits crash to the ground, is the single greatest event in the histoy of the internet.

    A keg and thou

    It would seem a whole lot easier to bring in a big grill and a couple kegs of beer...

    Of course, that *and* the explosives and I'll be there in a heartbeat!

    It's like whales who died on a beach. Why bothering to remove the bodies when you can blow them with dynamite. Flesh rain for all
