50 Sperm whales stranded off Tasmania

I don’t know what these whales knew that the rest of us don’t, if anything, but I find this fascinating and terribly disturbing. Two whales survived.

Quotable: Chief Maquinna

On the American Indian, Sustainable Banking System:

Once I was in Victoria, and I saw a very large house. They told me it was a bank and that the white men place their money there to be taken care of, and that by and by they got it back with interest. We are Indians and we have no such bank; but when we have plenty of money or blankets, we give them away to other chiefs and people, and by and by they return them with interest, and our hearts feel good. Our way of giving is our bank.Chief Maquinna

This is amazing! Too bad it is only a commercial. I’d buy this album in a heartbeat!
