Star Trek’s James Doohan was a D-Day hero.  At the invasion of Normandy, he killed two snipers and successfully led his men through a mine field. He was also shot four times in the leg, once in the finger, and once in the chest – but a cigarette case his brother gave him was in his front pocket, and it saved his life.  (, , )

In Brazil, the dolphins that team up with local fishermen have their own accent.  For over 160 years, wild dolphins have been helping humans catch more fish by signaling when they should cast their nets. Because they use their own unique whistles even around other dolphins, scientists think they may be trying to distinguish themselves as ‘the ones who help humans.’  (, , )
