    My three-year-old loves this one. I think he identifies with the aesthetic.

    What an animal!!! Please, sense people lovers of science, take a look at this.

    In the coming days, the blue ocean of the Antarctic will turn to red. The six-ship whaling fleet has left Japan, and is headed directly to the Southern Ocean. 945 whales, including ten endangered fin whales, will be killed – unless we do something to save them. It’s time to put an end to whaling in the Southern Ocean. Forever. Last year, your emails and activism convinced one of the largest seafood companies in the world to get out of the whaling business. This year, we’re asking you to join us in defending the whales from the very beginning with your ideas for the campaign!.

    “This year, we’re asking you to join us in defending the whales from the very beginning with your ideas for the campaign!.”

    Does this qualify as spamposting? Just a question, as I am sympathetic to the cause.
