Was walking on the pier yesterday and saw this medium sized Thresher Shark tucked under a bench.

What an amazing creature.

Their tails are as long as their bodies.

And now we all gawked at him, wondering about the times we swam here.

Then the butchering.

This is the kid who caught it. He wanted to sell the meat.

Off goes the dorsal fin.

Then the pectoral fin.

Then the pelvic fin.

Then the other pectoral fin.

Time to get the guts out.

The stomach and intestines.

This guy cut his finger on the razor sharp teeth.

Brutal. Swimming in the ocean always freaked me out.

This is disturbing, the human race is fucked. We are no more civilized than the next mammal.

First I thought you said Thrasher. LIke you hung out with Jake Phelps or something. Then I thought of this song.

Which I guess makes looking at mutilated shit cool. Like this shark.

"Human race is fucked"
Lol. Just realized bro? Try and change it or have fun. Gasoline,Meat,Not recycling. Whatever. I'm being stupid on purpose. as if people haven't killed shit since forever. but, you know, you can stop. It's 2011. You don't really have to kill a shark. Better outlets for boredom and nutrition exist.

isn't shark fin soup real expensive?

The guy killing/slicing looks like a clean,kinda fat Ben Raybourn.

I was thinking yesterday about being fished from space. Like a bigger being hooking us up then we can't breathe in space. Circle of life,dude.
An apple seems to be less work than a shark.

Damn that's fucked up. Today we had a skunk invasion. Animal control was across the street shooting em with a pellet gun. All you could smell was skunk outside.... Anyways on a side note I'm tired of working at a beef plant but its the only good paying job out here.. All I can do is save up to potentially move away.

Heard of that skatehistory exhibition in the California Museum.?
Thrasher asks if it´s time to put a skater on their list for the hall of fame.

And the voting site of the museum wants you to
"Nominate a Remarkable Californian".......
Mmmmhhh........
What do you want for your birthday, Ed?

This shit is crazy. I've never heard of a thresher shark. That fin looks so awesome haha. What a shame to kill a shark. Really lame. I couldn't kill a shark like that, but I could do that to probably any fish, so I'm no better than that dude I guess. I was thinking of buying croakies so I could look like Milo. Would that be awesome? haha

JGonz- I read up to the fifth book in Harry Potter, the goblet of fire. Then I stopped haha.

Josiah does live a crazy existence. I didn't know how to feel about Josiah at first, but I love him now hahaha. Shooting at skunks with pellet guns? hahah. Poor skunks, but what a weird image in my head. I see people in haz mat suits shooting at skunks trying not to get sprayed haha.
