    Orcas From Outer Space

    I went to a Swedish friend's farewell party a week ago and a "interesting" man gave an...ummm.."interesting" talk complete with songs and chanting and New Age rhetoric. According to him the Orcas ( Ordonti oscinus orca), or killer whales, are not really part of the accepted cetacean family but rather come from Outer Space and were sent here to teach us humans wisdom and provide spiritual guidance. That they use 100% of their brains and can with a single sonar "ping" learn all our language, thoughts and past lives were a proven given to him....etc,etc,etc.

    Not wanting to be a stinker at my friend's party I refrained from asking what the orcas were doing for millions of years while waiting for Homo Sapiens to evolve.
    (Lots of fossil record evidence for these cetaceans going back approximately 50 million years to the days of "orca-saurs" in North America's inland seas.)

    Anyways I find it amazing what people want to believe and how many seek a leader to follow, or preach to them the answers to life's mysteries. However Orcas From Outer Space was a real stretch for me. MaybeI should start my own tax-free religious cult centered around TWs where salvation comes from sending me your money and virgins. Now accepting applications for High Priestesses and Acolytes.

    Dang, just one word off - just one! He was almost right!

    There is a reason they are not called "Pandas-of-the-Sea"

    My understanding of the wild life on this planet, is that there are only two mammals that will actively and willingly hunt humans..... - Orcas and Polar bears

    Sure - a Hippo can put a dent in your day - and some other bears are plain "mean" - but they won't hunt, track, and kill you for food like those two above.

    No complaint from me over the issue - after all, humans do the same thing to just about everything else on the planet (including ourselves) - but it's nice to know we're the the most "ruthless" predator on this planet - despite what the universe can throw at us ......

    No clowning around, tell us more Safety Joe! Sounds like something from Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Universe.

    Actually teaching the safety course is mighty commendable of you Ex-Racer. Funny how I can post irrelevant stuff here only to learn surprisingly impressive details of fellow members.
