#174 Poor, poor dinosaurs

A friend of mine on Twitter mentioned how it’s a shame that dinosaurs don’t exist anymore, and it actually made me genuinely sad that they don’t. Hence the above comic that you (probably) just read.

Also, I heard something in the news about some crazy health care bill thing? Ok, you’re probably all tired of reading and hearing about it, so I will spare you having to suffer through my rambling thoughts. I’ll just say this – I have strong reservations about some details of the bill, but I am hopeful that it will overall prove to be a meaningful step in the right direction.

    There should be a name for the branch of philosophers that think it’s sad there are no more dinosaurs. That is my kind of philosophy.

    The perfect name for such philosophers already exists: Philosoraptor

    I just want to say that if they were around today they would gladly eat us all. You know, most of the carnivorous ones anyway. After all they were the dominant species on the planet (okay, so species is used incorrectly here, so what?). We are currently the dominant species on the planet.

    There can be only one!

    Er, though I suppose dinosaurs and tanks killing each other off would be somewhat entertaining. Maybe… “Eat smoothbore 120cm tank round you Mesazoic Monstrosity!” BLAM! “RAAAWR!”

    I think we’d win so long as there didn’t end up being zombie dinosaurs. Then again I don’t know how that would work because most dinosaurs didn’t have that many brains. Yum. Unless they were philosophical dinosaur zombies…

    Ahh. There I go again.

    Well sure, but how awesome would that be? Odds are a tombstone that reads “Got eaten by dinosaur” would be a lot cooler than whatever will be on my actual tombstone.

  5. Canuovea says:

    Yes. I suppose looking at it that way seems kinda awesome…

    But it isn’t like there would be enough of you to bury, or anyone else to bury you. Well, I suppose if you were eaten by small dinosaurs… but, look at that lawyer fellow in Jurassic Park, just gone in a gulp.

    Sleep deprivation feels like… I dunno…

    It isn’t like anything is stopping you from putting “Got eaten by a dinosaur” on your tombstone. Or, well, getting it put there.

  7. chaospet says:

    Well sure, but it’s infinitely more awesome if it’s true.
