Who is like the wise man?
Who knows the explanation of things?
Wisdom brightens a man’s face and changes its hard appearance.
I recently started reading Jurassic Park again, and I just got to the part where Ian Malcolm gets bitten by the Tyrannosaurs rex. They also just realized that instead of eight velociraptors, they have 37 — naturally, the scariest, nastiest critter propagated the most. Nedry recently got eaten by the poison-spitting dino. All this makes me wonder:
Sure, do some cute cuddly little (or big) herbivores, but honestly, multi-ton carnivores from the past that would require rockets to kill them? Great plan. I also thought it would be interesting if the book had been written with today’?s technology. For instance, they have this elaborate motion-sensing way of counting dinosaurs; surely now we have RFID tags, or GPS satellites, or something that would work better than that.
On a different topic, yesterday I found a 1998 penny on the train. What were you doing in 1998?
