Some whales aren’t content to beach themselves.  This blue whale is one of many in a trend that scientists aren’t yet able to explain.  While whales may beach themselves due to disorientation or depression, some go an extra mile, or in this case 12 miles inland.

By wriggling at only a few feet per day, some whales will move well beyond the shores and into forests. Urged on by senses we can only guess at, this blue whale, nicknamed “Mork” by the caretakers who attempted to press the giant back to water, managed to move deeper than any other specimen on record, eventually passing two small villages on its hopeless trek from the coast of Austria to its eventual death in Innsbruck.

Human intervention played a small role in that people kept the whale’s skin wet and cool, prolonging its life for longer than would have been natural.  This was done in the hope that two Chinook helicopters would be able to arrive in time to haul the beast back to the Indian Ocean, but the pleas for support fell upon deaf ears when Mitt Romney vetoed the petition and allocated the funds toward animal research on kittens to find a “cure” for homosexuality.

THINX Underwear:

OH SHIT YOU GUYS THIS COMPANY IS MAKING UNDERWEAR THAT IS STAIN RESISTANT, ANTIMICROBIAL, AND WILL ABSORB UP TO 6 TEASPOONS OF LIQUID BUT STILL LOOKS FUCKING SEXY

AND DID I MENTION THIS PART:

For every pair of THINX you buy, you help one girl in the developing world stay in school by providing her with seven washable, reusable cloth pads.

AND WHY IS THAT SUCH A BIG DEAL? HERE’S WHY:

After doing some research, Agrawal says she found that more than 100 million girls in the developing world were missing a week of school because of their periods, and using things such as leaves, old rags, or plastic bags in the place of sanitary pads.

THE SIZES RUN FROM XS TO XXL AND THE PRICES ARE NOT INSANE, THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY HIGHER THAN THOSE 5 FOR $10 SALES AT TARGET BUT YOU WON’T HAVE TO THROW THEM OUT BECAUSE YOU MISCALCULATED YOUR FLOW AND BLED ALL OVER THEM BEFORE YOU COULD GET TO A BATHROOM

I’M SORRY FOR SHOUTING I’M JUST REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS

LIKE HOLY FUCKBASKET IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME
