Dolphin Football

Dolphins playing football/soccer with jellyfish. Nice one.
Youtube snip:
Cardigan Bay holds Britains largest coastal population of bottlenose dolphins. Every summer, between 150 and 250 dolphins inhabit these waters, forming very significant breeding and feeding grounds. Preliminary evidence is for a population that fluctuates from year to year, for reasons that are presently unclear. In some years, most of the population seems to inhabit the Bay; in others a portion disappear or are replaced by new animals of unknown origin. If sensible management of our bottlenose dolphin population is to be undertaken, we must better understand its dynamics and what makes some areas more important than others. A particular need is to convey the importance of conservation measures that will reduce disturbance, one of the main threats to these mammal populations. Photos are taken to identify individuals as well as video of interesting behaviour, as shown in this clip. To CCW's knowledge this behaviour has not been caught on film in Wales before, although dolphins are known to attack porpoises in this way.

Seinfeld - Every single Kramer entrance ever

Apparently there are people out there with a lot of free time on their hands. Thank them, otherwise we'd be missing out on this video showing every single Kramer entrance ever from the TV comedy show Seinfeld. In chronological order - of course. If you do it, do it right!

Hand from Above by Chris O’Shea

Cool interactive video art project.
Hand From Above encourages us to question our normal routine when we often find ourselves rushing from one destination to another. Inspired by Land of the Giants and Goliath, we are reminded of mythical stories by mischievously unleashing a giant hand from the BBC Big Screen. Passers by will be playfully transformed. What if humans weren’t on top of the food chain?

Unsuspecting pedestrians will be tickled, stretched, flicked or removed entirely in real-time by a giant deity.
