Armed Dolphins Released Into Gulf of Mexico: This is probably the coolest Slashdot headline ever.

Armed Dolphins Released Into Gulf of Mexico […] the 36 mammals could be carrying ‘toxic dart’ guns. […] The U.S. Atlantic bottlenose dolphins have apparently been taught to shoot terrorists attacking military vessels.

I, for one, welcome our newly-armed brethren from the sea.
