one of the smartest creatures on our planet. I was able to spend a day in the water with them and when one young girls in our group had an injury (BOOBOO) the dolphin knew and went to her and laid up against her as if trying to comfort her. Then tried to act silly to cheer her up. Do not let there smile fool you, aproaching wild dolphins can be a coin toss as to how they will react to your intrusion.Dolphins can kill you.

Just ask a shark!  Seriously, any animal in the wild should be considered dangerous with humnas at the top of the list.

Is this article saying that domesticated dolphins can't talk due to lack of contact with their own kind?

Meanwhile, under the water... Researchers have succeeded in directly translating a specific word from a human for the first time.
Humans are considered to be one of the most intelligent species on the planet, yet interpreting their mysterious vocalizations is a goal that has continued to stump researchers for years.

To tackle this problem, scientists at the Wild Human Project (WHP) have been developing a special translation device called "Dirt-Based Hearing and Telemetry" that can pick up and analyze some of the sounds that humans make.

The first major success for the device came when WHP director Denise WideTail was able to translate a single word from ahuman  in the Caribbean. The humans had been trained beforehand to associate certain noises with different objects and in this case a human  was recorded using the noise for "lettuce" which is a type of landweed that the animals commonly eat.

The breakthrough suggests for the first time that understanding humans is not outside the realm of possibility and that we may be able to eventually figure out just how intelligent they actually are.

The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not "Eureka!" but "That's funny..."  --Isaac Asimov

Conspiracy theorists are created by the government to distract us from what they're really doing!!!! Or not.

I'd be happy if I could talk to the foreign call center operators.

I completely guarantee to you that a human can tell you exactly what a dolphin is saying when it makes a certain sound, and that all of the dolphins in the world speak exactly the same dialect...-LoLzzz
