That's by my house, I am going to go look at this tonight.  Yes I live by a superfund site, that probably explains the webbed toes.

Bullshiat.  I was told humans have no significant impact on nature and the environment.

This is just another liberal scare tactic.

From the comments:

"This dolphin was just hanging out in Gowanus Canal before it was cool. I'm sure it'll leave when it becomes too mainstream".

Which one of you farkers was that?

One should never fully "gow anus" without doing a bit of exploring around the periphery first. You gotta ease into those things or you're going to end up with toxic crap on your nose and bleeding dorsal surfaces. Those places are not for everybody--and taking your time going in will allow you to quickly GTFO if things go south.

Well let's see:

At the time the canal was built, several designs were proposed for it, some with lock systems that would have allowed daily flushing of the whole waterway. But these designs were considered too expensive, and as a result the Gowanus Canal was constructed with significant design flaws, but within budget

I don't know, man. That sure sounds a lot like conservatives in general and Teatards in specific.

/No, you can't get away with the whole "everything that Conservatives do is bad we'll just attribute to liberals" game.

The local water's no longer drinkable due to fracking, the only jobs left are below living wage cashier assignments at Wal-Mart, and the local infrastructure is collapsing to approximately 'Uganda'. As long as you have your resentment of those uppity city folk, though, all is right in the world, ja?

Hate to have to tell you this, buddy, but there is 1 group of people in this country that are currently raping the planet and farking over our children's children, and it ain't the people who live in actual human settlements, on moderate-density development with public transit.....
 
2013-01-25 07:30:55 PM
This reminds of of a manatee swimming up behind my house in Memphis a few years back. Dodged the rescue attempt by Sea World people I think... And died from the cold water shortly after. Swam up the damn Mississippi River that far. That's a long, slow swim.

May have gotten lost because of some illness, so likely this is true. It's odd that a healthy dolphin would have been that far away from the ocean and its home pod unless something was very wrong.

Yeah, they tend to beach themselves or otherwise leave the pod when time's up. Like a dog crawling under the porch to die.
