Whale Wars

Whale Wars was full of monumental stupidity last night. I mean fall straight on your face, trip over your feet, walk into a big red wall, and try to outrun a train stupid.

I can tell you this: Never in a million years will I ever donate money to the Sea Shepherd Society. I'm glad they go out to help whales, I fully support that. I even support most of their methods. What I don't like is this half-ass haphazard modus operandi where you "think" something might work and are relieved that it does (have a better game plan than that!) Even worse is their brazen disregard for human life, like sending out a small zodiac boat in the middle of the night in the arctic sea and then losing them (and having the zodiac team be so stupid as to not ever radio back to the bigger ship). To be honest, I don't get this whole premeditated "I'll die for the cause" business.

Their reference to being "like an army" and run "like a dictatorship" is so full of arrogance and idiocy that the dictionary needs to change its definition of Stupid and Arrogance to accommodate the Sea Shepherd crew.

And yes, I'll still be watching the show. I'm a sucker for punishment.

Ok, I've been watching the show but haven't seen the most recent one yet so I skipped over the rest of your post until future viewing HOWEVER I am so disappointed in their organization! I understand they are to be doing things that put them in danger, but the whole thing with creating hostages out of Nigel and Patsy was careless and stupid. How can you save whales when your dead, Gods forbid? I'm all for throwing stink bombs on board to ruin the meat, etc. but the guy from Green Peace just sits on his lazy ass and watches his little minions do everything (and then gets pissed). Patsy's ruining helicopter blades, and they damn near killed a bunch of people when they tested out the little boat.

I love the idea of the Sea Sheppard, and maybe other voyages, etc. are better then this one, but by filming these fools they are really giving them a bad name and they end up looking crazy instead of well organized and useful.

LOL, I knew who you meant...I thought "Patsy" was kind of appropriate in this case. ;)
