the jPod expansion pack has arrived!

jPod Orca

But not technically landed. via Fark.

It’s pinkish and smiley. It’s stuck to its momma’s side, rising in and out of the waves like a shiny merry-go-round creature…

Scientists won’t know if the calf is a male or female until it rolls over and shows its belly. They do know it belongs to a family of local orcas called the J pod. And they know it has three siblings.

That’s good news for the little orca, which is being called J42 according to birth order.

The unit automatically upgrades to Carnivore in 12-24 months, and has an expected window of operability of between 20-40 years, depending on usage.

Note that installation of the jPod unit in a SeaWorld environment may void your warranty.

  1. It’s great news but there are serious concerns as to whether or not there is enough salmon in the area for the orcas to eat. They have a hell of a time dodging the freighters, ferries and cruise ships which is not to mention the polluted waters and the sonar. Thank GAWD we made a big enough impression in Canada to have the batholiths project de-railed but that’s not stopping the Americans. They’ve decided to proceed anyway. What can your expect from a government with a moron at the helm?

  2. That’s interesting. The US press hasn’t linked the scarcity of orcas to a lack of salmon, although it makes perfect sense. Maybe we could train the orcas to live off those selfish tourists that come right up to them in their boats? Nobody would miss them.
