In 2004, The New York Times wrote an article about the loneliest whale in the world. Scientists have been tracking her since 1992 and they discovered the problem:
She isn’t like any other baleen whale. Unlike all other whales, she doesn’t have friends. She doesn’t have a family. She doesn’t belong to any tribe, pack or gang. She doesn’t have a lover. She never had one. Her songs come in groups of two to six calls, lasting for five to six seconds each. But her voice is unlike any other baleen whale. It is unique—while the rest of her kind communicate between 12 and 25hz, she sings at 52hz. You see, that’s precisely the problem. No other whales can hear her. Every one of her desperate calls to communicate remains unanswered. Each cry ignored. And, with every lonely song, she becomes sadder and more frustrated, her notes going deeper in despair as the years go by.
this is actually one of the saddest things ive read on here/ever
There seems to be a trend happening in Eastern European countries. It’s “Let’s climb the highest buildings, bridges and towers in our region and then photograph us on their edges.” There have been some significant risk takers of the daring feats such as Vitaly Skywalker who we covered last year. Skywalker got caught by authorities though and has since reduced his stunts. Yet another audacious individual by the name of “Mustang Wanted” is proving to take the hobby, if you can call it that, to a new level.
Instead of climbing and posing on high points, Mustang goes and then proceeds to hang off of them. Possessing some significant upper body strength, this young Ukrainian hangs from buildings and towers and has his friends take the photos. He even takes the daring feat a step further with such antics as hanging off with one arm or his legs. Crazy? Oh yeah. A small slip of grip would certainly determine a ticket out of this world, yet Mustang isn’t afraid of the consequences. Here’s a link to his website, but a word to the wise:Don’t try this at home.
