cretinbob: way better than those pussy dinosaurs


Think so?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jaekelo​p​terus

Based on the isolated fossil remains of a large chelicera (claw) from the Klerf Formation of Germany, J. rhenaniae has been estimated to have reached a size of around 2.3-2.6 metres (7.5-8.5 ft), making it the largest arthropod ever discovered,

I think I would much rather deal with an 8 foot scorpion than any number of predatory dinosaurs, and some of the crankier large herbivorous dinosaurs.

The problem here is, how to find a pot big enough to prepare them.  That's a lot of water you have to bring to a boils and then you'd need an absolute crap-ton of clarified garlic butter.

The real problem is that Helen Cutter has been popping in and out of the anomalies, sabotaging Lester's plans on keeping information about the anomalies from the public.  And taunting her husband, Nick, who thought she died years ago.

It's funny.

Man has been able to kill every species of megafauna it has encountered with nothing more complicated than pointed sticks.

Killing things bigger and tougher than ourselves is the hallmark of our species.  It's our special talent, well, that and being able to adapt to just about every environment on Earth.  It's why we've become the dominant megafauna species.  At least, on dry land.

So when people make movies and stories about things like dinosaurs or giant whatevers wreaking havoc, all I see is some guy sitting in a single-wide, cleaning his rifles and shotguns and taping the card of his taxidermist on the lid of his extra large freezer.
