Environmental Group Saves Humpback Whale

I frequent tumblr. I REALLY DO (lol) and I came across this post and loved it SO much I had to bring it here. The photograph and story behind it is easily one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen/read online recently.

If you read a recent front page story of the San Francisco Chronicle, you would have read about a female humpback whale who had become entangled in a spider web of crab traps and lines. She was weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle to stay afloat. She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body, her tail, her torso, a line tugging in her mouth. A fisherman spotted her just east of the Farallon Islands  (outside the Golden Gate) and radioed an environmental group for help. Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so bad off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her. They worked for hours with curved knives and eventually freed her. When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like joyous circles. She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, and nudged them, pushed them gently around as she was thanking them. Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives. The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth said her eyes were following him the whole time, and he will never be the same. May you, and all those you love, be so blessed and fortunate to be surrounded by people who will help you get untangled from the things that are binding you. And, may you always know the joy of giving and receiving gratitude.
I pass this on to you, my friends, in the same spirit.

Chris Brown Gets Canuckafied :: Yes, That’s A Word

5 January 2010 at 8:33 pm (Celebrity, Entertainment, Funny Things, Music, Photos, WTF!?) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )


So, I’m not one to gossip but I kinda have to on this one. I love that lil boy. Chris Brown, beating on females and all, is sexy (sorry but I’m NOT going to lie. He’s fine!) and this chick Rhea is Canadian and from Ajax. About an hour or so from me. Haha. My homegirl HATES her. Anywho, I peeped the pics. She doesn’t look too pretty in ’em but hey … photoshop does her well because in some of the professional pics I’ve seen, she’s cute. Apparently, some Toronto male (or female *cough*) know it all has anonymously told Sandra Rose that she’s a low down slut and she broke his heart (like what bitch – male or female couldnt have said such a thing) and that she’s 32 and not 25. Boooooo! Anyway, I doubt this is a match made in heaven. Take note these pics hit the ‘net days after Rihanna and her new boo Matt Kemp went “public”. Hollywood makes me sick. It’s truly for suckers. I see the play, guys. I SEE THE PLAY! I will say this tho …. neither one of the “new loves” get a thumbs up from me. I dont think Matt Kemp is hot and I dont think Rhea is hot. #kanyeshrug.

Chris? WHY are you holding a handful of cash? Furthermore, why is there more cash strategically placed hanging out of your pocket? STOP THE FUCKERY!
