Open Dinosaur/Gameday Thread, 8/16

animation: me

Back when I was a young pup, I loved dinosaurs. I had dinosaur books, dinosaur toys, dinosaur dinner plates, the works. My first viewing of Jurassic Park was like a total geekfest, and I instantly adopted the velociraptor as my favorite dino on the spot. They had freakin' retractable steak knives as toes! How cool is that?! Then I started studying dinosaurs and found out that the real ones were actually the size of chickens. That was a big disappointment. There's a Giants analogy here somewhere, but I just can't muster the mental energy required to make one. Also there's some kind of game going on tonight. We'll see about that.
