Do they eat their brains and gain their knowledge?

It also helps their ability to time travel too.

Yeah then they grow up and become unemployable paleontologists. IT WILL HAPPEN TO YOU TOO!

Dinosaurs were one of my gateway sciences.  I didn't go into paleontology, but it did set me on the road to becoming a scientist.

/the other one was astronomy
//if New Horizons had found space dinosaurs on Pluto, 8 year old me would have been very happy

I just worked with architects installing a giant fossil water lizard in Kansas, so I'm getting a kick...

If you're an adult with said obsession the Royal Tyrrell in Drumheller is a must visit.

Good. Because this is basically my 2 year old every day:

I freakin' loved dinosaurs as a kid. Built the skeleton models, devoured the library books. I don't know that they were any kind of gateway for me as I had lots of interests.

As an adult living in the western US, I finally got to make my pilgrimage to Dinosaur National Monument with kids & wife in tow. We did fossils and geology all the way there and back. Spent half a day at some hole-in-the-ground in western Utah hammering rocks to get trilobytes. Stopped in Fernley to split chalky sediment and find sticklebacks. Dinosaur NM was awesome. There's also a town on the way (Vernal) where some guy shipped 75,000 pounds of bricks by US Mail to build a bank.

Learning how to say long crazy dinosaur names was better speech therapy for little me than the actual speech therapy ever was.

Nice.  A Sergeant Obadiah Hakeswill reference.  I doff my hat to you, and fire my Baker rifle in salute!
