Perhaps you haven't been on a sailboat in warm waters. As you sail
towards a safe harbor for a quiet lunch, some dolphins come up to your
boat and, in pairs, race across in front of the bow. They start far in
front and gradually come closer and closer to the bow. Each time they
cross, the trailing dolphin executes a turn and take sthe lead. When the
dolphins reach the other side, they change places again, but turn the
other way to do so -- just like in a reel of three.
I wonder if they have to learn right should - left shoulder.
