    Autoplaying an ad.

    Here is an annoying fucking autoplay video starting with a goddamn ad to boot!

  3. I realize no puppies are killed, but It’s annoying to load a page like this and then have someone’s PSA start playing and I can’t turn it off until i find it and i have no idea where it is.

    Wow, newborn dolphins can swim like nobody’s business.

    Deeply ambivalent.

  6. Ah, that’s better. 

    I was initially surprised it was not head first, then by how large the baby was in comparison to the mother.

    Is it tail-first so it doesn’t have to start breathing air until the last instant?

    I once read that human newborns would instinctively swim if put in water but I’m doubtful they would have the muscle coordination to really do that.

    Even fixed, it’s still much better with audio at zero.

    Junior looks like he(?) tore mommy a new one, the blood in the water at the conclusion…

    I’m guessing that the umbilical cord must separate more cleanly and quickly for them than for us.

    Dolphins looks like they’re perpetually smiling to me.  Even while likely in pain and while bleeding out through orifices…

    I don’t know that I can get behind the kind of people who love dolphins so much they capture them from their home, drag them to a new one, constantly medically monitor them, ship them out to different venues and pimp them to humans willing to pay for “unique wedding receptions and group events.”

    That’s some mission-critical level double speak about love.

      No; it is not possible you should love the enemy of France, Kate: but, in loving me, you should love the friend of France; for I love France so well that I will not part with a village of it; I will have it all mine: and, Kate, when France is mine and I am yours, then yours is France and you are mine.

    Does mama dolphin have a choice? In “seeking out that Human companionship”? In others words, is she allowed to go out to sea and come back? If yes, then cool! If not, then boo!
