"For science!"

Japan is again sending their whaling-fleet out to sea. Their goal is to "collect" 950 whales "for scientific purposes". What "science" are they conducting with these animals? Seriously? Does it really demand killing of hundreds of whales every year? I would have guessed that whatever they are researching, they would have figured it out by now...

I guess the thing they are researching here is "what is the optimal preparation of whale-meat to make it most succulent for human consumption".

Yeah, apparently one of the objectives was to find out how long whales live. I'm NOT joking. Bit difficult when you KILL them...
