    Whales are air cooled

    Let me see if I have this correct, whales radiate their heat to the ocean and the ocean radiates that heat to the atmosphere; therefore whales are air cooled

    I don't know? Sounds like whales are water cooled and the water is air cooled.

    There's "whale oil" isn't there?

    This means whales are then at least partially oil cooled.

    Convection - convection

    The whale is water cooled. The ocean is air cooled. The atmosphere, land and water are heated by solar radiation.

    Where is their sight glass?
    Do they need higher ZDDP levels?

    Everybody knows whales are oil cooled. Why else would all those guys chase Moby Dick except to collect the whale oil?

    I have to agree, Whales are oil cooled, the oil is water cooled, the water is air cooled.

    Huh, what is the viscosity of whale oil?
    How often would I have to change it?

    It's an extremely low viscosity, like 3-In-1. Not positive about this, but it's my understanding that the oil is actually part of their sonar reception setup.
    Change it when it darkens and turns to goo... "fathom" that!
