so sad. but it seems like simple measures could make such a difference. how does one change the behavior of fishermen to reduce the suffering? new laws, but will we ever be organized enough to do so?

Judging by the vernacular this is not from 1970.

Not sure what happened there; perhaps the submitter got confused with a different article. We've taken 1970 out of the title.

Loading an entire mainframe on your small boat to store in a punched card some comments about a random Polaroid selfie.

Umm, “July 30, 2018” is right there at the top, in case the URL wasn’t a give-away.

The article contains the text "in 1999", so yeah...

1970, 1999, and July 30, 2018 Blasted time lords making it difficult for the rest of us

And I don't think "vegan" was in common use in 1970 either.

Coined in 1944. Not sure about widespread usage.
