New Dinosaur Found!

October 18, 2007

Don’t you love dinosaurs?  Most little boys do, and know more about them than almost anything else.  I used to have a pretty extensive collection of hard rubber dinosaurs when I was a kid.  If not for the mass extinction of 65 million years ago when that asteroid or whatever hit the earth, reptiles would probably have continued to evolve, probably becoming sentient and intelligent. 

But now that they’re safely dead, we can smugly call the dinosaurs clumsy and stupid…we’ll see if homo sapiens last for a fraction of the time that “Thunder Lizards” did!
