Serial killer whale.

It's weird. They had a public vote to name the new bridge they're building in Portland, which will be car-free, and they named it Tilikum. Tilikum means "friends, relations, tribe" etc. but I immediately thought of the whale. It's an especially odd choice because the bridge is used solely by the transportation company, who just a few years ago had major controversy when a bus driver made an illegal left turn plowing into five people crossing the street, killing two of them. Other than a lightrail it's all pedestrian.
They eventually fired the driver and blamed insufficient training in bus drivers. It's eerily similar to the Seaworld deaths, caused by Tilikum so why they'd name the bridge that is a fucking mystery to me.
Also, the overwhelmingly #1 vote was for this guy, Kirk Reeves
I voted for him, as did most people following his suicide.
This was upsetting, even if you already know the basic outline of the facts, but worth the time.
This is a doc I watched and then went and got others to watch. The part where the two whales set the one whale rider up for a WWF match never stops being amazing.

Also on Netflix, which is where I watched it. I already had major problems with keeping giant animals in small tanks before seeing it.

Blackfish: because we couldn't call it "Nigger Whale."
Wow, shit starts to get real around the 16:30. If you didn't know any better you'd swear they were talking about a prison.
