We do already. They are the true masters of the world, they've been observing our development with interest and slight alarm for the past few millions of years. Soon they will have completed their human extermination system in vengeance for those who eat octopi. :-) But seriously, I've heard all that, I've heard them called the primates of the sea. Interesting thought. But, how would sentient marine creatures have much technology? They couldn't have any fire to smelt metals, for instance. -- "Old linguists never die - they just come to voiceless stops." - anonymous ICQ: 18656696 AIM Screen-Name: NikTailor
