On November 9, 1970,[2] a 45-foot-long (14 m) sperm whale washed ashore at Florence on the central Oregon Coast.[3][4] The weight of the carcass was estimated at 8 short tons (16,000 lb; 7,300 kg).[5] At the time, Oregon beaches were under the jurisdiction of the state's Highway Division, which, after consulting with the United States Navy, decided to remove the whale using dynamite – assuming that the resulting pieces would be small enough for scavenger animals to consume.

Mr. Lahey: A lot of people, don’t know how to drink. They drink against the grain of the liquor. And when you drink against the grain of the liquor? You lose.
