    He claims to be a founding member of Greenpeace, which they dispute.
    He was expelled from Greenpeace's board of directors for espousing actions that the board felt would violate the group's policy of nonviolence (1997).
    He calls himself 'Captain' despite never having been licensed as a ship's captain.

    He is a wiz at Trivial Pursuit.
    He was pretty cool about being mocked by South Park: 'Hell, being ridiculed, lampooned and insulted on South Park is a declaration to the world that Sea Shepherd and Whale Wars are effective and have cracked through to the other side of the media culture curtain.'
    He said, 'People say I manipulate the media. Well, duh. We live in a media culture so why on Earth wouldn't I?'
