The engineer who figured out a creative way of disposing of a beached (and deceased) whale passed away last Sunday.
According to the news report about the engineer’s recent death, it sounded like it was just a matter of being in the right place at the right time.
It sounds like no one else wanted the job.
I’m talking about the engineer being in the right place at the right time…the dead whale didn’t stand a chance.
One creative engineer…and 20 cases of dynamite later, and you’ve created a legacy.
I don’t know what I’ll be remembered for…or if I’ll be remembered at all…but I could do a lot worse than blowing up a whale carcass with 20 cases of dynamite.
George Thornton was 84 years old.
