(Huffington Post)   "Expert" claims to have figured out how to translate what dolphins are saying. "First word is...'So'. Okay, good, second word is... 'long". Uh huh, third word is... 'and'. All right, fourth word is... 'thanks'. Hmm... that's odd"   (huffingtonpost.com) divider line 35

Bah. More progress was made by John Lilly in his decades of work with dolphins starting in the 1950s.

"Discovering that a human could satisfy a dolphin's sexual needs was the experiment's biggest interspecies breakthrough. Dr. Lilly still believed that dolphins could learn to talk if given enough time, and he hoped to conduct a year-long study with Margaret and another dolphin. When the plans turned out to be too expensive, Lilly tried to get the dolphins to talk another way-by giving them LSD. And although Lilly reported that they all had "very good trips," the scientist's reputation in the academic community deteriorated. Before long, he'd lost federal funding for his research. "

A discovery like that would be a fluke.

TED? Yeah, sounds legit.

There can never be any 'decoding' of the 'information' coming from fish 'speaking', any more than snowflakes.

its easy for me. i want you to starve any creature or beat it until its almost dead. bring me in and i can easily tell you what it is trying to say if it can still manage to make a few sounds. my rates are on a sliding scale and price can be surprising low if you own a puppy mill and want a group rate.

Dolphin: "You have fish?"
Human: "Yes, but only after you go put this round flat thing on the big metal whale."

I hear that dolphins actively hunt for their food, but an android dolphin is just a browser.

If there's one thing I learned from 'Flipper' it's that dolphins can be instrumental in the capture of villains and thugs.

Some creationists like to think that each snowflake contains information encoded by God when he created each individual one. Some even have faith that one day this code will be decipherable by proper Christian scientists.

The cypher key to the rest of my post is: fish

God talks to me thru texts...although the first time he contacted me with instructions he called himself "Verizon"
