Yes, I'm sure Flipper really thought of himself as Flipper, and not *squeak chirpchirp*.

Yeah, but all those clicks and whistles translate to " Hey baby, how YOU doin'?"

It's already been established they have unique names for eachother, and even a larger vocabulary than any human languages. Which makes perfect sense since they have larger brains than humans.

Well, that said, monkeys and humans are still smarter when it comes to communication. And when it comes to water, the human is a far faster swimmer than the shark, for the record...

little known fact:

When 'Flipper' was canceled, they mixed him with Helman's and made sandwiches for the cast and crew.

They do this on building sites as well. I'm sure there must be some builders on a sixth floor scaffolding, putting bricks on top of bricks, and doing the carpentry and the electrics and stuff, but there are lots of builders up there on the sixth floor, who just seem to be leaning over the edge, (mimes reading) Hey! farking 'ell! The cat sat on the mat! Eat cheese banana.. I can't read that one. fark off!

And construction companies must go mad. I'm sorry about your building, we got on the sixth floor, everyone was just shouting off the balconies! They say they're calling out the plasterers to prayer!

Except for the hands thing. That's just, like, my opinion, man.

For too long dolphins have been seen as hippies of the sea, time to rename the species' rapefish to end any misconceptions.

Instead of wars they'd have bizarre rape-fests. All of their technology would revolve around more efficient raping rather than killing.

They're not fish. Not even close. They're mammals. If you want to end misconceptions, do it right.

\Rapefin works.

Oh no dolphins love killing too. I think Cracked just did an article about this.

Seems to be a strong positive correlation between intelligence and cruelty that transcends species. Kind of gives credibility to the theme of super-advanced aliens being total murderous, destructive bastards when they encounter Earthlings.

Whales have the biggest brains of anything on Earth and they're very peaceful.

But if what you're saying still holds true to some extent, people have postulated that violent races would often destroy themselves with their technology before ever using it to reach space. As a sort of advanced Darwinism we may be going through ourselves as a species right now. I think Carl Sagan called it a technological adolescence. I don't see any signs of us growing up anytime soon.
