Watched the most profoundly stupid Nat’l Geo special on dolphin attacks the other night. I just don’t get how people can be so stupid when it comes to dolphins, how anyone could think that it is a *safe* idea to go swimming around in the water with them. Because they can do tricks? Because they’re so intelligent? Because they *appear* docile and gentle? Hello people: they are PREDATORS. Not cuddly, sweet, domesticated pets. Why are you surprised that they bite? That they can be aggressive? That they occasionally are provoked to attack? Duh. funny thing is that J. put the show on as background noise while I was grading midterms, not realizing I would become interested (and incensed!) and would be distracted from my work.
