Question for those against dolphin swims/rides...

Recommended Posts

I should point out that domesticated isn't an intelligence thing. It's more of being socialized to humans. But, they have shown that as dolphins get socialized to humans it has negative efects on them. Possibly it makes it easier for an animal to be domesticated if it has a lower IQ. Or maybe it's once something gets domesticated it doesn't maintin the same IQ because it isn't having to be self sufficient. I was just trying to point out that dolphins think as much if not more than humans. They are complex and have emotions. Cats & dogs don't really care if their children are taken away & they forget about them afterwards. Otherwise it would be really cruel to remove their babies, but we do it all the time. So when you think about how much dolphins are like us you can see how cruel it is. can you imagine taking people away from their families & forcing them in an unsuitable environment for entertainment? It really breaks my heart to see what is being done to them.


I second what jason said about not judging people who do it. I don't think bad about my friends who have done the dolphin swims. But, I do wish they knew the truth about it. I didn't feel like I was being judged by the friend who told me about it. I was really thankful she enlightened me.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
