Opposable Thumbs by pseudo-manitou Opposable Thumbs by pseudo-manitou
Quote Carl Sagan: " It is of interest to note that while some dolphins are reported to have learned English -- up to fifty words used in correct context -- no human being has been reported to have learned dolphinese."

Humans are not so above animals as we'd like to think. We know this in our hearts, so we build up concepts such as the 'soul', dreams, emotions, higher consciousness -- and then deny that animals could possibly posses anything like them.

When scientific study blows that false reasoning out of the water, what will you use as an excuse to treat animals as property?

You do know that they breathe oxygen, right? XD

I'm pretty sure he doesn't need a water-bubble.

That has been mentioned a couple of times. The illustration also has improper English grammar in use. That's not really an issue for me -- the design works as it is.

If you need to suspend disbelief, then associate the bubble with some device containing oxygen-rich liquid...

Could be thought of that way, but I think Oxygen-Liquid has a whitish tinge to it?

Either way besides that, I like it. :3


Great job. :D

Dolphins breathe oxygen, they're mammals... Water helmet makes no sense.

...read previous comments and replies. The subject has been dealt with, and you are way too late to the party too spot something no one else has noticed.
