Interesting story.<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block"><b>BEIJING, China (AP)</b> -- The long arms of the world's tallest man reached in and saved two dolphins by pulling out plastic from their stomachs, state media and an aquarium official said Thursday.<br><br><br><br>
The dolphins got sick after nibbling on plastic from the edge of their pool at an aquarium in Liaoning province.<br><br><br></div>

Why was there plastic at the edge of the pool to begin with? Did part of the pool liner tear off? It seams like the people at the aquarium should have done something to prevent the dolphins from having access to the plastic.<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Or picket the aquarium, petition them and boycott them.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:">

This may come as a shock but...<br><br>
there are some people in this world that actually <b>LIVE IN CHINA!</b><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/doh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":doh:"><br><br><br><br>
I don't plan on flying to China. When the circus comes to town I don't expect any Chinese people to come to the USA to join the protesters outside the ticket booth.

Hmm... you think somebody in China might notice you driving along with dolphins in the back of a truck?
