Many years later a Biology Prof at Portland State was notified that a whale has grounded and died. It was trucked to the University and put in a tank on top of Science Building 2 until she she could figure out what to do with it.

Unfortunately, carpet beetles were no longer an option, since the incident where they got out and marched in neat rows to the cafeteria.

Then the water in the tank started slowly leaking.

She just avoided that end of the building until the end of Summer when flies, crows, and gulls had stripped it down to the bones.

Ah I recall November 9th, 1970 quite vividly...
The day the Irish School of Ecumenics was founded and Scarface the rapper of Geto Boys was born

Gotta say, I love the video with this little boy in the background kicking rocks and then later appears just wandering the beach post explosion.

Stop your blubbering, it's only a dead whale.

Raining whale blubber is making me giggle.

This should be a national holiday, Lane County Whale Day.

Most likely.
That would fall on November 6th, in case you were wondering.

That 10 minute report on the whale demolition reminded of the way they used to cover Evel Knievel's motorcycle jumps. 96% of it is talking about the preparations for the event, 0.1% is the event itself, and the rest is coverage of the aftermath.

They put that jump in American Truck Simulator.  It's less "Evel Knievel" and more "Thelma and Louise", though.

I had heard about this for years, but had never seen it before.  I have to admit, it was one of the most amusing news clips I've seen.

Too bad Mythbusters wasn't around yet to help them blow that whale up.  I'm pretty sure they could have vaporized it like they did that concrete truck.

You blow up one stupid whale. They never let it go.
