Things To Come.

The Dread Dormomoo and I are watching the Great Wall documentary on Discovery. During breaks, they are flogging a Jurassic Park Revisited-style program about attempts to commit jiggery-pokery with DNA, and bring back, say, a T-Rex. (Why a T-Rex? Why a soul-less eating machine? Stick legs on a Great White, why don'tcha? Isn't there a cute veggiesaurus to engineer?) Of course, whatever is produced will likely be RE-produced. At this realization, we came to this thought.

Dinosaurs are to Asteroids as Trailer Parks are to Tornadoes.

Call Art Bell and George Noory!!! If the Crichton scenario occurs, THAT will be what brings The Big Rock.

Maybe this 2012 Mayan Calendar end of the world thing is not that far off after all.

What a brilliant observation. That's totally insane.

I love it.

That would be awsome! Cause I would never have to pay off the Jeep I just bought this weekend!

Heh. I suspect that those trying to resurrect the dinosaur are only doing so because "T-Rexes are kewl."

Likely true, and as we all know, that is the
BEST reason to do anything!

And...T-Rexes ARE kewl. GRRRRRRRRRRRR.

Personally, I'm getting rather tired of seeing "scientists" trying to do something simply because they believe they can pull it off regardless of the applicability of the research and possible ramifications of errors.

I'll stop now before I get into my old GMO ranting again.

Because that's what the average American understands/is. If you brought back something like a giant fern, we'd have nothing in common.

We can share dinner with a T-Rex. Though the trans fats might kill it.
