    It’s like the scene in The Forbin Project where Colossus starts talking to Guardian. We’re so screwed.

    I listened to the two example vocalizations. They sound French to me.

  3. MrJM says:

    Apparently, this gets better. Dolphins in a French aquarium seem to be “speaking” whale—making whale-sounding noises at night that mimic the actual whale noises they hear all day on the soundtrack to the aquarium dolphin show they perform in. These dolphins have never met real whales. 

    Or those dolphins have been driven mad.

    Perhaps Inter-Species Communication is an indicator of the overall rapid evolution which is currently invigorating the planet…

    When we see the “Inter-Species Olympic Games” advertised, we’ll know for sure!

    I’d say I’m speechless, if it weren’t such an atrocious pun… But yeah, apparent interspecies communication… Though it is left unclear and perhaps impossible to know if the dolphins *know* they are “speaking whale”….  Astounding, in any case.

    What does this say about humans’ relationship with Nessie, our underwater ally?

    I for one welcome our new aquatic masters.

    “So long, and thanks for all the fish!”

    “Hey Frank, I think that Bottlenose just called your mom a floozy.”

  10. MarcVader says:

    Of course they speak whale. Albeit with an atrocious accent. Sorta like Americans speaking Spanish.

    They also teach aerobics.

    This is the prane that dropped that bomb, as you can see, frying the prane is doffin and way-rle.

    Nobody ever invites Orca.  He plays too rough.
