This Is What It Looks Like When a Blue Whale Capsizes Your Boat

Originally posted 07/08/2014 03:45PM

Photographer Dale Frink's whale-watching expedition ended with the surprise appearance of two blue whales in the one place he didn't expect – right behind his boat.

As he explained on his blog, Frink booked a one-man whale-watching trip outside San Diego on July 2, hoping to get some good shots of he whales in action.

After observing a pair of blue whales, as well as some bottlenose dolphins, Frink and the captain were surprised when one of the whales made a surprise turn, and then disappeared below the surface. Following guidelines, the boat's captain stopped the boat until the par could be sure of the whale's location.

"Unfortunately for us," Frink wrote, "the blue whales eventually resurfaced directly behind the boat without warning, mouths completely open in the middle of another lunge feed. We had little time to react."

Watch: This Cat Took Some Serious Chill Pills

We'll have what this cat is having.

It's the middle of the week, and this kitty could not care less. Instead of fretting over World Cup brackets, unanswered emails and Supreme Court decisions, this feline is content just sitting in a chair and straight chilling.

The video above is brought to us by calm cat connoisseur and YouTube user shironekoshiro, the same feline whisperer who impressed the Internet with Basket Cat and Stacking Cat. This leads us to wonder, how does shironekoshiro keep their kitties so relaxed? Catnip hypnosis? Reggae music? Aromatherapy? Whatever it is, it would be nice if they shared.
