    What a lovely coincidence: Humpback is currently been drilled in the SFB. Now if that comes in, cue some almighty whining and wailing from the pink palace. Fingers crossed ;)

    Revolutionary new trials being undergone by Argentine Navy. Porpoising of an upturned frigate at Puerto Madera?

    Can you imagine what went through the mind of the whale? It surfaces, takes a look around and thinks “oh fuck this shit, i'm going back to japan...”

    Cristina has claimed it as further proof that Argentina has less poverty than Germany as the Germans don't have such large house pets.

    Fernández aka bogbrush will say its all a plot by the imperialists and opposition press to give Cristina the hump.

    Latest BBC reports that it is heading back out to sea. Obviously has more sense than all of La Campora.

    “When that happens, the animal often needs help to get back to sea, which usually involves using boats to direct it back from the direction it came”.

    Good job Argentina signed up with Chilean forces for maritime rescue.

    @12. But this is one of the playgrounds of the corrupt and criminal right next to, by chance, the Casa Rosada. “By chance”, what am I saying?
