    Incredibly beautiful images.
    Dolphins are intelligent, playful and non-aggressive. Imagine if they ruled the world instead of us.
    But then thy might need to keep us penned, by necessity, although it would pain them to do it, to keep us from ruining the earth with the “Tsar bombs,” etc.
    They would care for us and intervene to separate us every time we try to kill each other.

      From the news: “One of the most lasting legacies President Obama will likely hand over to his successor, whether in 2013 or in 2017, is the use of drone aircraft for targeted killings. ”

      Dolphins don’t do that.

      “and i thought it was a special talent the first time i blew a smoke ring as a teen…”
      So true.
      In all honesty, have you got beyond 3 rings inside one another? 2’s hard, but 3’s a killer.

        ha ha ha therefore proving that hippies and dolphins are very alike.
        It would explain a lot about Dolphin’s slacker lifestyle as well.

        I always love the Douglas Adam Hitch hicker’s guide to the Galaxy. Just before the Earth is to be destroyed the Dolphins all leave the earth in space ships whilst saying. ….

        so-long and thanks for all the fish

        Dolphin humour it doesn’t get much funnier that that.

    On the subject of smoking, I remember watching a documentary film called “the Century of the Self” about a jewish guy called Edward Bernays who was Freud’s nephew. Using his uncles knowledge, Bernay’s set about promoting public smoking for women, er, amongst many other things. Well worth watching the whole documentary, but if you only fancy the smoking related bit, it’s at 11.35 mins onwards.
