Maybe this explain why savage dolphins, never domesticated by men, rarely are afraid of men.
I had the chance of see personally this happen when I was diving last year. Dolphins came out of nowhere and stayed with us for minutes. They never had contact with us before and allowed to touch them, swing by their side and dive with us. That is a very intriguing behavior for a mammal that never have been trained.
It's amazing behaviour. Also amazing are the close encounters with large whales. That these giant animals can be so gentle and delicate when close to humans is quite incredible. Just with the size of their bodies one is amazed that they not by accident drown or injure those near them.
Look at these two clips. The first a man and daughter in a canoe has an close encounter. When the whale almost goes under the canoe, but instead roll over on his back, it's almost like he is asking for a belly-rub

The parts I found interesting where the historical facts such as the paintings on the Swimmers Cave, etc, the sea ape theory, etc.
Those aren't really historical facts. There is no indication (outside this "documentary" work of fiction) Cave of Swimmers paintings depict mermaids instead of swimming humans, and the Aquatic Ape Theory has been thoroughlydiscredited and is generally accepted to be utter nonsense.
As for the Bloop, while one can fantasise about all kinds of government coverups, but the fact remains that the Bloop sounds just like an icequake. If you would get your hands on recordings of icequakes, which should be obtainable, you could come to the same conclusion. As for the "uncovered" coverup, I fear that the person responsible for that blog fell for Discovery Channel's viral advertising for the Mermaids film.
The theory has been discredited by government agencies and skeptics. I dont call that credible.
Nonsense. It has been discredited by independent palaeontologists and anthropologists, using rational arguments. Feel free to take a swipe at their actual arguments, instead of plugging your ears and shouting "la-la-la, I can't hear you, you evil government boogeymen".

As I mentioned the Bloop in question has been pulled off the net by DHS. So take your icebergs and suck on em or put em in your brandy.
Please provide any proof to this statement that is not Discovery Channel viral advertising.
Thats the thing. The Bloop is gone from the Internet. Seized by DHS.
I'm pretty sure that's fake. The tab should change to a government seizure tab, and it does not. There isn't any redirect like there should be. The source code is wrong. The site gets an image title on hover, and actual seized sites don't.
Honestly, I'm confused Asteroid... First you say the NOAHH bloop is not what you are looking for, then you ask why Discovery pulled the NOAHH bloop? And the fake seized websites were about mermaids but not bloops?
Edit: looked at the link you put up.. 30 seconds in there is a noise, but to me it sounds like a sound effect. It was kind of akin to the horns from the air kind of sound effect that has become popular.
