That is very cool. I wonder what force is keeping the air from rising.
However, "Thanks for the Fish!"
I wonder if they do that in the wild or just at SeaWorld?Maybe they do this for entertainment because they're bored to death....
Senitmentality about dolphins, like snowboarding, works best with lots and lots of dope. Or so I have been told.
It might be bubbles playing with dolphins.
Bubbles? I didn't see a chimp!
Madison Man, from what I see in the viddy, the dolphins are creating a current that controls the bubble ring.I'm impressed with the breaking down of the larger ring into a smaller ring and having it still pretty much perfectly circular.Way cool Thanks, Ann!
Wow, kids all over America now have something to hone their skills on while sitting in the bath tub.
I loathe sentimentality about dolphins.They forgive you.
Small bubbles rise very slowly. It's not really the bubble rising anyway, it's the water going down.Water viscosity keeps it from happening very fast against the presure difference that a small bubble produces.I don't understand the stability of the rings, but then I don't understand smoke rings either.The Navier Stokes equations don't tell you very transparently what its stable motions are.
Wingtip vortices persist for a while and then kink and dissipate, I think.Those are related, probably.I bring it up because of vortices.
I loathe sentimentality about dolphins.I loathe sentimentality about dogs ;)
I loathe sentimentality about all animals.Especially the Dutch (sorry, was channeling Nigel Powers there.)
What sentimentality do you not loathe? (1) Meade (2) your sons (3) dogs (4) ex husbands

Not sure what you mean by "sentimentality about dolphins", but the tendency to anthropomorphize seems to be pretty ingrained in us. The literature about a connection with them is real, but some people always forget they're animals.paul a'barge said... What sentimentality do you not loathe? (1) Meade (2) your sons (3) dogs (4) ex husbandsHe has a point. You seem to be back on the cruel neutrality thing again.In any case, I found our puppies this morning all bundled in a fleece wrap we put in to help keep them warm, as if they were in bed. And, yes, Madame, it was endearing.
It's all about how to cope with boredom.
This is a good post for a breast blog, since these are really hot blooded mammals that happen to swim around a lot like fish.
That is about the coolest thing I've ever seen!
Althouse:"I loathe sentimentality about dolphins."They're smarter than we are!They're better than we are!If only they had hands. With thumbs!And guns!(Of course, they wouldn't ever use guns. That's our way, not their way!)
Lem:"I loathe sentimentality about dogs ;)"Bastard.
Really neat! There's a lot we can learn from dolphins. I hope more and more of us will...
There's a lot we can learn from dolphins.Like how to kill our young?Or simply attacking passing animals and killing them?Did I mention the torturing to death thing dolphins really like to do?Dolphins are mean, stupid animals. Their brains consist mostly of stuff to keep the brains warm, not to make them think.
We cannot learn a lot FROM dolphins, but we can learn a lot ABOUT dolphins. "From" doesn't make much sense.I do not loathe sentimentality about dolphins, though. If you can't be sentimental about dolphins, you have a bad attitude.
"torturing to death" = every carnivoreOnly man understands the affect on the other.
But I do loather sentimentality about people who spend way the h*ll too much time in trendy eateries.
That's how dolphins doodle.vw: revise (?! Now Captcha has become a writing coach?)
Holy crapping monkeys on a stick. Did we just discover dolphins could do this? Why isn't everyone terrified beyond the ability to articulate rational thought? I'm taking no chances and am going the "full Brockman": I, for one, welcome our new marine mammalian overlords.
The fellow said that we can learn from dolphins and they can learn from us.Oh golly, I hope not!Any day now we'll see them cheating on their wives and crashing their SUVs, and that's just what they can learn from Tiger Woods.
"They have a lot to teach us"?I'm so tired of this faux innocence. When a dolphin bites someone, I'm sure she will say, "Oh, she's hungry because I took away her territory"!
