It’s Not What You Say, It’s How You Say It

Apparently the maxim used as the title for this posting holds true in the whale world as well. A lonely male whale, species unknown, has been roaming the Pacific Ocean for decades in search of a mate.  Unfortunately for him, his voice has too high of a pitch to be heard, or at least understood, by other species of large whale.  Researchers and the Navy have known about this whale, nicknamed 52 Hertz for his vocal frequency, for 24 years. His story has been publicized enough in recent years to inspire sad songs and sad poetry.

So, if you don’t have a date this weekend, don’t feel so badly. At least your unlucky streak hasn’t reached nearly two and a half decades.
