You are butt-naked in total darkness. Sopping wet and totally alone, the space you're in is so small that you can't stand. The only sound is the thud of your heart. You are a mewling human baby in a mechanical womb.
In South Africa, local legend has it that the elephants like to get drunk. They seek out the marula tree, overindulge on its sweet fruits, and enjoy the intoxicating effects of the slightly fermented juice.
Did I stutter? This one does exactly what is says on the tin, folks. Hit the jump for the clip, if you dare, then we'll discuss what we can learn from the footage. Because you're damn right there's a teaching moment to be had here.
WHOA. Did you know dolphins have wet dreams? Be honest – you probably didn't. Hardly surprising, though, given that this is the very first footage of a wild dolphin ejaculating completely spontaneously. No overt socio-sexual activity. No direct genital stimulation. Nada.

It's like the ocean has turned into something out a bad 50s biker movie - gangs of young bottlenose dolphins are roaming the seas, taking out their sexual frustrations by randomly killing any porpoises that get in their way.
This is what Super Smash Bros. Brawl looks like at a super-widescreen resolution, when using Dolphin, a Wii emulator on a PC. It's so wide, you can barely make it out when shrunk down to fit Gizmodo's image constraints.
Roy Scheider sadly passed away yesterday at the age of 75, and he will be sorely missed. He's best remembered by scifi fans as the captain in Seaquest DSV, but his greatest role in the genre was actually 2010: The Year We Make Contact. Find out why 2010 was better than 2001, after the jump.
Ocean Breeze is an undulating segmented worm-like light that's shaped like a dolphin, is lit up with blue LEDs, and makes strange undersea noises complete with dolphin squeaks. Yes, it actually moves and flaps its tail up and down like a dolphin. Or something.
