    I'm already done with my popcorn (it was sea salt) and have moved on to this becoming a drinking game.

    I got all CSI recently on one of the dead harbor seals that wash up at pt. defiance occasionally and noticed what appeared to be a bullet hole in its head, entrance and exit. it was also slashed along its belly.
    had a couple indians tell me about shooting seals that learned to get salmon from the gill nets. apparently the bleed like crazy.

    My thought exactly was .....isn't this a native netting area...hmm makes you wonder what the possibility that they'll actually never find out who is really responsible for this. Apparently there's a reward being put up by Sea Shepard, even if they do find someone responsible - they won't prosecute "popcorns" - because it's their right to harvest 1/2 catch. Maybe whoever is involved couldn't distinguish between salmon and sea lions.....things that make you go hmmm

    Actually I hardly eat any salmon (I think fish tastes horrible), but it tastes a whole lot better than seal

    Oh Oh Oh! And we could bring back David Hasselholf to save people from the sea lions. Wow, that would be cool. Then at the very end of the show, someone decides it would be better to save the sea lions and shoots Hasselhoff in the head.

    lol yeah, sort of the reaction some people have when they read about hunters shooting each other or themselves in the woods "on accident"..some sick f**ks have the same reaction...

    and that seal oil is about the healthiest fat you can eat, because it renders at room tempature it is a heart healthy fat. i mean i guess if you would rather eat a burger, then a fish, then yea seal is probably to strong. but me i would rather eat fresh salmon eggs straight from a chums you know what, which are fantastic by the way
