Non-Human Personality

Accoding to this story dolphins are actually close enough to humanity's intellectual prowess that we should consider granting them the status of "non-human persons".

Studies into dolphin behaviour have highlighted how similar their communications are to those of humans and that they are brighter than chimpanzees. These have been backed up by anatomical research showing that dolphin brains have many key features associated with high intelligence.

For example, a survey of dolphins found that by and large the aquatic mammals found the recent Hugh Grant/Sarah Jessica Parker vehicle Did You Hear About The Morgans? "vapid, lackluster".
