Evidence has come to light that whales can live for 150 years or more. A harpoon with the date of 1880 in it was removed from a bowhead whale recently. Since whalers (then) didn’t shoot at calves, and whales tend to reach full growth in about 30 years, that makes that whale in the 200 year range.Now: Imagine what it knew before it died.

Third World

ingridrichter:

The term “third world” was part of the classification of countries during the Cold War. This classification designated those countries aligned with the United States as “first world,” those countries aligned with the Soviet Union as “second world,” and those countries that were nonaligned as “third world.” With the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the classification no longer exists.
