An interesting article about creativity in dolphin (porpoise).

Yes, indeed. We have a lot to learn about others and thus about ourselves.

That's great. We could learn a lot from dolphins: I play, therefore I am.

Ain't it grand! It reminds me a little (anthropomorphizing) of kids blowing soap bubbles. Just no need to stop at the local five and dime for apparatus.

Other studies I've read say that pods of dolphin spend tremedous amounts of time, upwards of fifty percent, in playful physicallity, ie non-sexual caressing, touching and goofing.

Hmph, and we think we're at the top of the evolutionary ladder.

By Neptune, look, that primitive land creature is making primitive sounds. ;)
