Ever See a Blue Whale Life-Sized on Your Computer? Now You Can

So there really isn't anything that deep to this image. It's just a (more or less) life-sized blue whale eye. And on the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society site you can educate yourself/be mesmerized/waste some time for a while staring at it while the entire life-sized animal scrolls across your browser window. Believe me, it's way cooler than you might think:The whole thing is a promo to raise awareness for the WDCS anti-whaling campaign. WDCS points out that Japan, Norway and Iceland combined kills over 2,000 whales each year, with tens of thousands of dolphins and whales being killed annually.
