    [–] What really happened to the dinosaurs Dlatrex 9 points ago in gifs

    For all my years of appreciation and study of paleontology, the handle Dlatrex is in fact completely unrelated! Lol. But it does line up nicely this time :)

    [–] What really happened to the dinosaurs Dlatrex 75 points ago * (lasted edited 9 hours ago) in gifs

    Everyone has a laugh (for good reason) and if I could share another story.

    For many years I worked at a Planetarium/Observatory at a college campus. Working there we naturally had any atmospheric/celestial related questions come our way even when we were out and about. There was one other campus staff (professor?) who was having a discussion with the director about why it was prudent for NASA to make plans to visit Mars. His logic was thus.

    Professor: “We need to go to Mars to exploit Martian resources..”

    Direct: “That’s fine, but what resources are so valuable to warrant this rush to Mars?”

    P: “Oil”

    Director: ???

    P: “Where does Oil come from? Dinosaurs!”

    D: (well it’s not that simple, but lets see where this goes) “...Ok, but how do we know that there were Dinosaurs on Mars?”

    P: “You know the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs?”

    D: (one theory, but I have to see this through) “Yes...”

    P: “Have you ever played croquet?”

    I don’t know how the rest of the conversation played out as the director and I kept going over picture of Dinosaurs being blasted off of the far side of the Earth during an Impact event, sailing across the void, and just happening to intercept Martian orbit to become fossil fuel deposits.

    I wonder what that professor teaches today...

    Edit: A word or two.

    For fun’s sake, here is the tune from Tom & Jerry’s marching ants over the clip of the trotting millipede.

    This simulation was made using some of the greatest scientific minds on the planet. I’m pretty sure its paleontological integrity should withstand all peer scrutiny.

    Last time this was posted someone said it reminded them of Tom And Jerry’s ants’ March so I made this.

    Maybe I should revisit the Jungle book...

    Original Tweet.

    This is a game being played as part of the human chain across the city.

    Should be 6-7 miles depending on the route they're taking!

    Hah! Not sure what sub comical clips would fit into. I'll hunt around.

    I think you wanted the sound to go on the millipede video. Here's the best I could do.
