So true...

Life cannot be classified in terms of a simple neurological ladder, with
human beings at the top; it is more accurate to talk of different forms of
intelligence, each with its strengths and weaknesses. This point was well
demonstrated in the minutes before last December's tsunami, when tourists
grabbed their digital cameras and ran after the ebbing surf, and all the
'dumb' animals made for the hills.

-B.R. Myers, author (1963- )

I promise a real post tonight. Gotta work on my vacation journal today!

It is an important and popular fact that things are not always what they seem. For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much -- the wheel, New York, wars and so on -- whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man -- for precisely the same reasons.
