See those guys in that boat, one of them wasn"t so lucky. This is proof you don"t mess around with an angry whale.

Something like this happened in the 1800s to the whaling ship Essex. About 20 or so people got trapped at sea for ages in tiny boats, and eventually they had to resort to cannibalism...

Only a few people made it out of that...

Mother nature doesn`t screw around.

Narwhal exist, the males normally have a tusk, and they`re by no means extinct. They live in the arctic ocean. They`re also a lot smaller than the whale that got pissed at those fishermen.

The video is in Turkish, so I`ll translate a bit I guess:
This takes place in Japan.The whale was about to beach so some fishermen tried to re-direct it but the whale didn`t like being approached I guess and tipped over the boat. Then it hit the other boat and that one last guy got trapped under the boat and drowned. So...yeah, not funny.

Im gonna make a limerick about this...

There once were some guys and a dude,
who were in a boating-ish mood.
But a whale came and said,
"I want somebody dead!",
Now that poor little man is whale food.

^-^

I think they were Japanese, I`m not sure... but I think he said something like Zhapooon. Or something. OK then.

anyway, this would have been 400 times better if it were a narwhal.

P.S. Do those exist?

I`m having mixed emotions: watching the video I was amused. capsizing boats are fun to watch.

It turns sad when someone dies tho.

But the video didn`t show any signs of death, so "haha, pwnt" to the video.

Aw, was hoping that wasn`t the case. That would be a very unexpected way to go.
