I wonder how well-insulated such a structure would be. It gets cold in Alaska, I hear.

Whales stay warm thanks to their layers of blubber. The bones would not have hat advantage.

At the time, it provided various "goods/luxuries etc" and profits!
Now-a-days that's not needed, so I hate countries that still kill whales and like species, using scientific research as an excuse to "feed" those that will pay big money for certain foods as sortssmiley - sadface
IE - shark fin soupsmiley - grr NO value whatsoever to human nutrition!!!

I have a hard time hating whole countries. That takes way more energy than I can spare. And, there are probably some nice people in those countries who don't deserve to be hated.

Unless they have sent soldiers to invade us.

But we have plenty of people in my own country who are bigger threats...

I don't ACTUALLY hate the countries or it's peoplesmiley - smiley
It's just a small few that do not give respect etc to ALL living creatures, whether in the "food chain" or for so called scientific purposes etc.

For food, at least kill humanly!

Most countries probably allow scientists to use mice for experiments. I have (or had) a distant cousin who used mice for experiments on heart problems.

I know "science/medical experiments etc" for human health etc is needed of coursesmiley - smiley

But I still don't agree with causing/subjecting pain and suffering to lesser lifeforms, as not many species have the similar DNA structure to us.

I heard cats and pigs referred to as amazingly similar to us genetically.

Chimps and Bonobos are so genetically similar to us, that some people think they should be reclassified into the genus Homo, along with us. I would prefer not to do experiments on these animals.

Cats and cows are our closest matches outside of primates.

Now the case for pigs:

"We took the human genome, cut it into 173 puzzle pieces and rearranged it to make a pig," said Schook. "Everything matches up perfectly. The pig is genetically very close to humans."

The funny thing is, I'm reluctant to eat cows and pigs. And I'd *never* eat a cat. Or any other primates.

But mice? They drive me berserk! smiley - grr I've ordered some mousetraps. I went to nibble some chocolate breakfast cereal last night and found three mice in the box. smiley - cross

Mice like peanut butter.

Until the whale genome is mapped, we won't know how similar their DNA is to ours, but in a lot of ways whales are comparable to us.

[I've put six glue traps all around my breakfast cereal. The mice eat potatoes or bananas, but mostly they go for my cereal. My house may not be made of whale bones, but I still want to defend it from those who would want to do harm to my food supply. smiley - winkeye]
