Whale flatulence stuns scientists

The researchers claim this is the first photograph of a minke whale letting one go in the icy waters of Antarctica. It was taken from the bow of a research vessel.

Cheese, no sense of humor, and no respect either.

See this is a Science Forum, least last I had Heard, and in any kind of "Real Science application" what you are suggesting, although humorous I suppose, would work out to be very dangerous, given the fact that the scientists who reported upon this event commented upon the fact that they could smell this cloud of gas as it broke over the prow of the ship, ergo it was a LARGE volume of gas that would, when someone humorously (silly, and stupidly too) goes up to Lite it, probably blow them right off of the ship.

That is why I suggested that you do it, cause in a reality, in a/the real setting, it would be a really really silly/stupid thing to try. Not only is there a distinct possiblity that you would be seriously injured, (not that that matters?) but you might just hurt several others as well...Not known as a bright thing to do! and it makes kinda certain that you would not be the kind of person invited to go along on such a venture.

Understand me now?
