this'll make you really think.
If you want to get into mermaids, one of the theories as to why dolphins are so gentle with humans, despite the imminent danger many humans pose, is that although history has long since forgotten them, nature still shows signs of mermaid interaction with dolphins, as friends under the sea. This theory came about after that unkown corpse, believed to possibly be some kind of unknown creature resembling a mermaid, was studied. Obviously not much backing to it, but cool to think about.
Just amazing, great story, sad ending...
ZaGaffer, I realized that most of it was hypothetical when I watched it. Can you direct me to where you found out those NOAA scientists are proven to be actors? The guy that studies dolphin and whale communication? The weird recording was fake? And so on. Not busting balls, just curious about your source of information. It's pretty lame that they would portray any of that as fact, if it's all total bs. I'm far from believing anything I see on the stupid box. Apparently reputable scientists on a reputable channel, maybe.
That just made my day. Soulful creatures. Sometimes we can be, too.
Cool vid too bad the hook was left in it...
