    Whoever owns the cabin must have a steak in this.

    It's kind of unnerving that there's a generation of carcass-removal 'experts' that obviously have never seen the exploding whale video.

    The Forest Service actually publishes a manual on how to effectively detonate an animal (better scans of the images here). Also, "Blaster Examiner" is apparently a real job title.

    This reminds me of the first time I saw the exploding whale on your website circa 1994.

    Today I learned.
