Luckily it will spontaneously mutate into something less harmful, because the writer couldn't think of a good ending.

Yeah but parthenogenesis is an actual thing. It's not far fetched to assume it occurred in saurischian dinosaurs and by extension other types. We can observe it in frogs (DNA used in Jurassic Park) and also modern lizards like big farking saurischian looking monitor lizards.

If you want to knock Crichton's stuff, knock his murder mystery stuff written as "John Lange" His scifi is rooted in actual facts/theory.

No need for pedantry when making fun of Crichton!

Crichton is an MD from Harvard. So you can expect the science in his stories to be at least based on valid science.

Crichton was a global warming denier. I can't remember what book it was. His last or next to last where environmentalists cause a tsunami, but he adds about twenty pages as an afterword explaining how climate science is the new eugenics. Everyone believes it, but everyone turned out to be wrong, and evil. The guy was not just kooky and rich. He was San Diego kooky and rich.

So there you go. "you can expect his stories to be based on real science..."  but you would be wrong at least part of the time.


State of Fear. The best part of the book was the review that trashed it caused Crichton to be such a petty biatch that he wrote the reviewer into his next book as a pedophile with a penis so small that there was no medical evidence that he had raped a baby. Yes, Crichton was that petty.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Small_p​e​nis_rule

The small penis rule was referenced in a 2006 dispute between Michael Crowley and Michael Crichton. Crowley alleged that after he wrote an unflattering review of Crichton's novel State of Fear, Crichton included a character named "Mick Crowley" in the novel Next. The character is a child rapist, described as being a Washington, D.C.-based journalist and Yale graduate with a small penis.
