Dancing animal videos Scientists study the evolution of rhythm

The sea lion studies are especially interesting. For years, scientists have thought that animals' "rhythmic entrainment" (the ability to synchronize with an external beat) was necessarily associated with vocal capacities to imitate sound. Sea lions are quite limited in the sounds they can make, which "poses a real problem for the theory that vocal mimicry is a necessary precondition for rhythmic entrainment," according to Cook.

Scientific study tosh, they just wanted to see a Sea-lion boogie. :D

On the subject of scientific studies, I am currently conducting a Snotr first. You may be aware of the 'Show me the intermediate fossil' video about five video's previous to this one...Well it's currently sitting at 95 comments which I believe is already a record for Snotr BUT I have been told by a semi-reliable source that when it gets to 100 something amazing happens to the Snotr site, so come on guys make a few comments and lets see what happens. You Might even be number 100 what a privileged. :D

Master Cobra-kai, I got this one. O:)

Ms Thunders, your statement is both true and unfortunately false. There is no mention of female angels in the bible thus it is true that women 'are no angels' but false that there are some exceptions. Master 2001C and I do not accept any word or words, or implications or inferences drawn from said word or words, that are not contained in the Bible.

We accept your apology and thus trust that you have learned your lesson.

9. thundersnow ‘#8 You accept my apology? But I haven't apologized yet!’

Ms Thunders, given your blasphemous assertion that some women could in fact be angels, which is in direct contraction to His words and wishes as expressed in His book, ergo blasphemy, Master 2001Cobra and I just assume, given the stakes and the sin, that upon this situation coming to light that you would immediately apologize, repent and ask for forgiveness. That is what any person would do when discovered to be in contradiction to His word no? You clearly don’t want to suffer the consequences so (boils, pillar of salt, eternal damnation in the fiery pits of hell etc etc) so clearly you have apologized. And as the self-appointed God squad we therefore accept your apology on His behalf and will pray for your soul – again.

Interesting video. I recently studied the history of music-making and found it very interesting. To better structure my thoughts, I decided to contact the service https://supremedissertations.com/ . These guys helped me correct my grammatical and stylistic mistakes and I got an excellent mark for my student work.
