6. That is truly beautiful.

Seeing one makes you wonder about intelligence, about how and what it might be thinking. Same with octopi, dolphins, whales and other denizens of the ocean.

Too bad we're killing the ocean. We've got to stop that.

7. It's human overpopulation. That's the central problem.

Just too damn many of us.

9. I have to admit I was skeptical when I saw your subject line, but wow, that IS too cute for words.




It's so cute it looks as though it were designed for a Disney movie.
