lol

Anyone falling for this as being real, must have been born in a barn... and not be a human being. Quite funny though.

If this is for real, then I'm obviously the fool (wouldn't be the first time). To me it just looks completely faked. The way the rings are created, and the way the air supposedly disrespects natural laws, and threads itself down in the water, rather than going for the surface. IF real, it would be one helluva science project for serious scientists. I would imagine that propulsion through water (and air) could be completely re-made, where gravity wouldn't matter at all.

So I will be in my grumpy corner of denial until further notice :)

If this is for real,


"Watch the dolphins at SeaWorld Orlandos Dolphin Cove as they artfully create and play with underwater bubble rings and hear what SeaWorlds trainers, educators and guests have to say about this fun and fascinating behavior."

I did, but I am not someone who believes anything broadcasted. There is so much deceit and dishonesty floating around, right from the towers of political crookery, down to the least influencial person one could imagine.

There are more sources for those videos online... which is the only source I have available. Of course, if I went to one of those places and saw it first hand, I would instantly have to review my take on this.

Any scientific paper available, which might explain how the air defies laws of nature?

I would assume it is legit...cause otherwise, a lawsuit could come about, or some government agency like the Federal Trade Commission could come after them for deceit/misrepresentation/etc.

In any event, these Dolphins are in a tank...which could mean various water-currents...further, as a Dolphin moves along in water, I would think there would be a "pressure-wave" in front of them....which might explain the physics of this phenomenon.

Also, if you search Google for "charles gibson dolphins at SeaWorld," you will find people claiming that Charles Gibson, ABC's News anchor person (http://abcnews.go.com/WN/News/story?id=1995736), gave a news byte to these Dolphins, like this:

Watch Dolphin Bubbles (http://www.blogcatalog.com/search.frame.php?term=dolphin+bubbles&id=11118ea9f9a6400de2d6928c734cf981)

What’s new about dolphins? While watching Dolphin Bubbles on ABC's World News with Charles Gibson, I really feel that I am in the dolphin planet. It makes me feel how it’s like to be at the dolphin kingdom.

ok.... having watched more of this, I am inclined to adjust my initial opinion... quite fantastic if true.

Having seen these rings first hand, its quite a interesting phenomenon to say the least. And each dolphin is very protective of its ring. I think that not every dolphin is able to produce the rings.
