I heard this on Radiolab first, there is more to the story which makes it even cooler and more pics! Story from National Geographic photographer... the poor seal was afraid his new friend was too stupid to live!
Fashions are a matter of perspective. This is why I've never quite understood the "hipster" label. Look at how much your opinion slides based on the change of clothes. (#4 surprised me). If only we were able to see past the external trappings and really see the spark of awesome inside. Everyone has a truly unique spark that needs fuel and fanning to live brightly.
