So...what they found is that those mammals that would do best around dinosaurs are those which are small, speedy, agile, and able to take maximum advantage of cover and evasion tactics?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that a pretty exact description of the few mammals of the day? And didn't we already know this?

Well then, a blessing on his/her house unto the nth generation as you continue to earn yer coveted position as deepest-cyan-colored-poster possible that I reserve purely for Fark's A-team.

Article fails because it doesn't even try to estimate the velocity of a Jesus-laden velociraptor.

Umm Subby,

Isn't that the best advice any time you're being pursued by something that wants to eat you?

I don't need to hang around with slow people. I just need to be quick to break a couple kneecaps. I don't need to be the fastest. I just need to not be the slowest one screaming, "Ow, me knee! You bastard!"

At my last D&D game we got talking about Walking Dead, which turned into a Zombie Survival discussion. One of my players said that if the zombies attack, I was the person he'd most want with him. I was flattered, until he explained that he was 100% certain he could outrun me.

My response: "Oh, bad luck dude. Turns out I have a gun, and you have kneecaps. Well, you had kneecaps at any rate..."
