Can dolphins help prevent Iran from developing nukes?

5 posts / 0 new

Iran may be close to developing nukes – but we have dolphins on our side. As tensions grow in the Strait of Hormuz – the US Navy said in an interview that it could deploy dolphins in the area to detect underwater mines. As Admiral Tim Keating said in an interview with NPR, dolphins are, “astounding in their ability to detect underwater objects.” Dolphins are also expert diplomats – as Science Daily reported they use diplomacy when they communicate with each other. But animal rights groups aren’t too thrilled with the idea of flipper becoming mine-fodder and have sent petitions to the Navy in protest. If only there was another animal we could use – one that everyone is suspicious of – and one that is far more complex. Quick – someone catch one of those robotic pigeons from the planet Xenu!

They are union dolphins. It is a lot easier to do a few tricks for a meal then to hunt for yourself. Dolphins will work for food.

Cyborg dolphins will hack the earth's computer systems and threaten to shut down the entire system unless humans knock it off. "And don't call me 'Flipper'."

Has anyone considered what horror awaits if Iran figures out how to train dolphins to deliver bomb rather than detect them?

State-Owned Bank of North Dakota is a HUGE Success!

In 2014, the state Bank of North Dakota was more profitable than Goldman Sachs and J.P. Morgan Chase. And, that's why every state should own their own depository institution.

Most people attributed the Bank of North Dakota's success with the oil boom in the region, but their latest report shows that last year was their most profitable year ever, despite the fact that their state's oil boom has become an oil bust.
