So the exploding whale! It's an Oregon Legend!

People often ask, "Why the fuck did they (try to) blow it up?"

The answer is surprising. In Oregon, all beaches are public right-of-ways, aka, highways. This is from 1911, and the reason highway 101 runs along the Oregon coast, and there are state parks roughly every 10 miles is because of that election. This means that the Highway Commission was created and put under the Parks and Recreation department in Oregon.

In the 1960s, the Oregon Beach Bill clarified what part of the coast belonged to Oregon and created an easement for public use from the waterline to the vegetation line, regardless of private ownership. This is why you'll never see a "private beach" in Oregon -- though some people try to prevent access to the beach above the vegetation line, it's not exactly difficult to walk around a fence that stops where the plants do.

Anyway, ODOT (Oregon Dept. of Transportation) inherited all highways upon its creation, including the "Beach" highways.

When something falls on a highway, like rocks, or trees, ODOT cleans it up.

When a whale "fell" on the highway, ODOT got to clean it up.

Having no experience in the matter, and not wanting to bury it as it'd just get uncovered by tides in short order, they decided to blow it up so birds could carry off the gross little bits later.

They.. underestimated the amount of dynamite needed.

I don't know enough about explosives to say for certain, but I would expect the more power used, the smaller the chunks would be.

I think the "launching it into the air" was a function of poor placement and not using directional charges more than the amount used.

I distinctly remember being like 12 years old spending all day one day in July 1996 downloading The Spirit of Christmas only to find out I had to download real player which I'd have to do the next day cuz my parents were coming home and and I had to hope my dad didn't use the family computer that night and find out I downloaded something from the internet cuz I wasn't supposed to cuz of viruses. It took well over six hours to download that short, I can't remember if we were 28.8 at that point or we had upgraded to the 56k.

Fortunately, my dad didn't look at the computer that night. The next day I downloaded real player and my neighborhood friends came over and we watched it and it was the funniest thing we'd ever seen.

That's the first video I have a real memory of downloading off the internet which was really the only way to watch videos at the time.

I saw the grape lady live on morning TV here in Atlanta in about 97-98.

I remember this because I had to wait on the guy I was working with to call me and tell me where our new jobsite was. This being the time before cellphone ubiquity meant I had to sit beside my house phone, and wait for him to tell me the directions (not address) because he didn't know himself without driving it and we had no way to "look it up" like we do now.

(BTW, we lived in different sub-burbs outside the ATL so I always drove myself and met him)

ETA: That day stuck in my memory so clearly because when I met him that day right around lunch I was doing the "Uggggh.. Ooof" sounds.

I fell down some stairs on my back and started making those sounds when I got to the bottom. Involuntary low pain sounds that sounded so goofy.

The first time I had the wind knocked out of me I was on the school playground. I just silently crouched down, accepted my death, and then relearned how to breathe. Can you imagine the embarrassment if I'd started yodeling in pain? I was so shy that if anyone noticed I might've had a heart attack.

We had that sliding hand rail thing that was maybe 15 feet long. You run and grab it or have a friend push you, either way you reach the other end wayyy to fast feet go flying up, hands get twisted and you fall 5 feet into a pile of wood chips or some wierd rubber that has a little bounce to it.

Next thing you know the colors have changed, stars are out in the day, your getting minor breaths and starting to panic, there were 5 kids playing before you started your slide but theres now 50 kids around you with one big kid yelling to get the fuck out of the way since it's his turn. Someone's mom who is a nurse is trying to console you while the teacher says your fine and couldnt care less.

Then you regain your breath and go play with everything else but avoid that like the plague for maybe a week or two before you're back.

I jumped right up and chased after the ball for about 3 steps and fell right over once i realized i couldn't breathe. Worst minute of my life trying to get my wind back. Very strange feeling, wanting to breathe, nothing in my airways, and yet getting no air.

Once as a kid playing soccer I took a really bad hit and fell the ground and felt like I couldn’t breathe for 20-30 seconds and just writhed around making weird noises, until it went away.

Bummer. Crazy how much just owning something can alleviate your stress. Could have avoided the stress of a lawsuit and going into recluse if you just laugh at your own misfortune with others. I mean, I leapfrogged over a parking meter on senior year homecoming, hit my nuts at the top of my dismount and plummeted wrist first onto the sidewalk where my wrist snapped - all in front of my high school crush. It sucked and hurt but we ended up getting married years later because I can laugh and marvel at my own stupidity. If it was filmed on live TV we probably just would have gotten married quicker because it would have been even funnier.

To go into hiding but swat and bite at lawsuits like a cat under the bed, it reveals all I need to know about your character.

Just any FYI, no one stays in the hospital for a few weeks "under observation". Observation only lasts for approximately 48 hours and you are admitted only if you have a clear medical issue requiring continued care under the guidance of a physician. Unless she had flail chest, it's highly doubtful she was admitted just because of broken ribs.

To be fair there's every chance that "right in the kisser" soundbyte was something she said 25 minutes before.

I’ve been to that winery many times. I used to sell that brand at my past job. Chateau Elan

Reddit can really do a number on you sometimes. I've just spent a minute or two sounding Chateau Elan, searching for the pun.

This video ruined that reporters career. In fact, even though the fall happened a few years before it went viral, she had to be pulled from her role in front of the camera because the incedent was too distracting from her story. I worked with the former producer that was boothing that live shot when it happened. What you don't see is her back on air saying she's okay.

Something I’ve always wondered: why didn’t they cut at least her mic feed quicker? I feel like if you’re the sound guy, and you hear a sound like that, you instinctively find her channel and cut it ASAP.

That’s the unmistakable sound of getting the wind knocked out of you. Only like 20 more times and you won’t sound like a dying animal when it happens again.

I was interning at a local news station and we watched this thing over and over again, just rewinding on her guttural pain screams right before going live. The anchors were trying their best to hold their shit together. Every commercial break we would play the sound trying to get them to laugh. We did it for weeks.

Jesus christ. I'm laughing, and feeling bad for laughing, which is causing me to laugh more. Also I can't stop rewatching it because it's so brutally funny. I hope that little girl is okay though.

Grape Lady in 2008: "Am I embarrassed that I fell? Of course. I also broke a couple ribs, thanks for asking. I had to spend a few weeks in the hospital under observation. I suffered quite a bit for an honest mistake, a momentary lapse in concentration, and now I’m trying to move on."

I'm just gonna start repeating my post. Basically, this follow up story seems like bullshit.

This story is an interesting case of how shit gets made up and believed on the internet.

  1. When you google the radio show "totally real exposé", no show or history of a show appears. This was 2008 so it's pretty damn likely a syndicated radio show had a website. All of the results are related to "grape lady" and most are just repeating that exact same quote and sub quote brocouncil uses.

  2. The other results that show up are links to "transcripts" of the radio show, except none of those sites are up anymore so the only place it can be found is in this ridiculous thread on a forum.

http://forums.hipinion.com/viewtopic.php?t=9356

Scroll to the middle of the page to find it.

3. The host's name is Chuck Farnsworth. Googling Chuck Farnsworth also returns zero results related to 'radio'.

4. Read the transcript. It's pretty obviously fake.

So yeah, that story seems to be false, even though it's plastered all over the place (like at knowyourmemes.) We should probably stop repeating it.

EDIT: And if anyone's curious why I felt the need to repost this several times, it's because readers doing poor background research has become endemic. This is a benign example of it, but it's the same problem that causes shit like Pizzagate or any number of Alex Jones-led stories.
