I dropped a load of ambergris after Friday night's tequila shooters.

gopher321: ambergris


Apparently the daily fail believes their reader base won't know that word.

I used to dream about doing that. Then another thread on here said that picking it up is illegal in the USA. I wonder if it is the same in Canada. I could drive up there to sell it.

Imma start giving whales magazines with airbrushed pics of skinny whales, and fat shame them on social media, so they develop bulimia and I can cash in on this.

Also whales are extremely resistant to body shaming, so giving them bulimia is out of the question.

I've been a member of FARK for 8 years, and a reader for twice as long, and this is the first time I've read about ambergris whale vomit.

As far as I know, fresh Ambergris stinks of rotting fish to such a degree you'd vomit if you got near it...  and its worth its weight in gold.

But yes, illegal to own in the US... and probably Canada (endangered species act).

...the smell of a lump of ambergris is more pungent when newly-excreted and again, tends to mellow over time. It has an odour variously described as reminiscent of farmyard manure or the smell of seaweed - certainly many people find it objectionable, yet others claim it's quite pleasant!

It's banned in the USA and many other places because the sperm whale is endangered.  Probably still more than legal in Asia, as Chinese people probably mix it with some bear gall and bigfoot penis to make an oil that gives vitality.

Ambergris is a product of the sperm whale's digestive tract, true, BUT IT IS NOT VOMIT! It is almost always excreted through the anus. It's not shiat either, but at least that would be a less misleading term than 'whale vomit.'

Because money belongs to the rich people. Poors shouldn't have it.

Yeah, I'm not clear on that, either. If you find it, you just step over it and keep walking? Relinquish it to the authorities or else? Rather than google it, I'll let a resident expert fill in the blanks.

I remember reading a Nancy Drew book that had ambergris in the plot somewhere.

Because there's no way to tell if you just picked it up or if you killed a whale to get it.

It's illegal to be in possession of bald eagle feathers for the same reason.

So... smuggling across international borders on top of illegal possession?

The legality of whale vomit is one of the more interesting quirks to have come from the evolution of the human brain.

I actually first heard about ambergris from the Adam West Batman when they fought Louie the Lilac, as played by Milton Berle.

I'm apparently a criminal in the eyes of the CCP just for linking that term.

I've oft been told I could gag a whale. Perhaps it's time to give it a try, skip step 2, and profit.
