about existed, and this is the actual story of the event that inspired melville. so there was a whale that size, that scale, who attacked the ship. but it's not the mob dick story, because their own story is, you know, it's personal. it's heroic, it's emotional. >> jimmy: they're surviving. i mean, what do you do? so, once the whale does that, this giant -- well, they're hunting for a a whale. >> well, they are whalers. that was the energy industry of its time. so they're going out there and, you know, encroached on that whale -- >> jimmy: this is like "jaws" times ten. like a giant, giant shark but it's a whale. >> i always say well, he's not really like a shark -- >> jimmy: i'm explaining to people what a whale is. it's different than a shark, right? >> it has a different mentality. >> jimmy: yeah, different mentality. whales are different than sharks. >> i say he's more like king kong. >> jimmy: okay. >> you know, like, man encroached on the wrong dude. >> jimmy: yes. >> don't mess with him. >> jimmy: don't mess with mother nature, yeah. he lives here. you just messed with the wrong dude. >> and so to his whale brethren. >> jimmy: yeah okay, good.
