Japan is basically flouting the law. They've already been brought before the ICJ  in 2014 and were found to have acted contrary to a number of premises of the International Convention for Regulation of Whaling. Not to mention they themselves agreed to a moratorium on whaling. Additionally, they hunted these whales from within the Southern Ocean WHALE SANCTUARY.

This disgusts me. And further reduces my faith in the goodness of humanity.

For the love of animals. Pass it on.

This is Bocksten Man. He is a medieval man who lived in 14th century Sweden. He was killed, dumped into a lake - which later turned into a bog & miraculously preserved his body - and now calls the Varberg County Museum in Sweden his home. Experts have reconstructed his face (he does look a little like Pippin') and crafted replicas of his clothing. This is what we know about him:

* He was probably blond (acids in bogs tend to turn blond hair red)
* He was probably murdered. 
(a) He was secured to the ground with three wooden poles driven through his torso. 
(b) At least one of the poles were taken from the roof of a building.
* He was 171 cm (5'7'') tall.
* There's a good chance he was nobility, because
(a) The femurs show signs of a lot of horseback riding during his life.
(b) He was of slender build.
(c) His muscles seems to have been relatively small.
(d) He also had initial signs of a rheumatic disease known as "DISH", which afflicts people who lead a sedentary lifestyle.
