And he slashes at you with this. A six inch blade hidden behind his ear.


Jesus, it's like Motley Crue gangbanged a raptor.

They wrote in a plot device to explain why they could take creative license with the dinosaur designs. They spliced frog DNA with the dino DNA so they're not going to be exactly like the dinos from 30 million years ago. And since they already established raptors as not having feathers, it would be internally inconsistent to suddenly give them feathers in the sequel.

You paleo-nerds had hundreds of years to let everyone know that some dinos had feathers. It's too late to whine about the depictions of them now.

If I were making Jurassic Park 4, I'd use it as a mechanism to bring people around to the idea of marriage equality.  I'd be sure to feature happily married lesbian dinosaurs raising perfectly normal dino kids.  I'd have scientists and raptors falling in love, and show how ravaging it is on their relationships when they're denied to marry the human or dinosaur of their choice.  But no, these topics are simply too controversial and the studios will never take them head on, instead turning a blind eye to dinosexual love and gay dinosaurs.

Albinoman: Also, T-rex, allosaurus, etc. are more like giant crocodiles, not running around on land. Powerful tale, legs built for launching, eyes and nostrils at the top of their head. If you look at a T-rex foot, they look like the swimming foot of a crocodile with long, relatively slender bones. Not the small, rounder bones used to support large amounts of weight. Their little "arms" would seem useless, but are perfect when youre belly down scooting along the bottom of a lake or river.


Also: this explains all of the kangaroos I catch in my fish wheels.

On fark? Usually that you've said something intelligent someone else disagrees with, but has no actual reply to.

They have a problem with the lack of feathers, and not the fact that they are making Jurassic Park 4?

Talk about screwed up priorities.
