Was tempted to post a picture of Donald Trump's inauguration because political humour, but I like this thread so won't ruin the flow.

the pictures are all trenchant social commentary whether they mean to be or no

I thought at first that one dinosaur was so horrified it was vomiting blood.

it is always easy to look back and say they should have tapped Michael Bay to go back in time and build an asteroid-killing dinosaur spaceship

"Changing Nature" Tom Trbovich Kirk Thatcher July 20, 1994 D365
The family prepares to celebrate the return of the Bunch Beetles, who arrive back on Pangaea every May 14th to eat the rapidly growing Cider Poppies. This year, however, they fail to arrive and it soon emerges that WESAYSO built a wax fruit factory on top of their mating ground and killed the species. Without the Bunch Beetles to eat them, the Cider Poppies quickly begin to overrun the continent. More concerned with bad publicity than any threat to the ecosystem, B.P. Richfield chooses Earl to take care of the problem. Earl, eager to quickly get rid of the poppies instead of looking for a long-term solution, chooses to spray everywhere with defoliant. Although this succeeds in getting rid of the Cider Poppies, it also manages to destroy all plant life on the entire planet. Deciding that rain is needed to bring back the plants, Richfield decides to drop bombs in every volcano, reasoning that the clouds they produce will bring the rain. Instead the volcanoes produce thick black clouds, blocking out the sun and plunging the planet into an ice age. Earl finally realizes what a mistake he made by tampering with nature and taking it for granted, however it is too late. He apologizes to his family for ending the world, but promises that dinosaurs won't just disappear. The Sinclairs agree that they'll remain a family no matter what happens, as the house begins to be buried by snow.

Did you know: dinosaurs had precisely six different reactions* to their mass extinction 66 million years ago! Let's take a look at them...

Haha I read the thread title and my first thought was “Does KM have anything to contribute to this topic?”

or imagine being murderer (aka predator animal trying to survive) and it's the end of the world right after you kill the other dino friend. you'd be like "is god punishing the world for what i did? how important am i?"

…And there it is.

I was just reading history of the Lisbon earthquake of 1755 in relation to the rise of atheism. The thought processes were very similar, but with a lot more god blaming.

recovering internet addict/shitposter (viborg), Wednesday, 6 October 2021 18:09 (eight months ago) link


yeah, i mean in many ways the world makes a lot more sense if you think of it as god punishing people for one thing or another. especially if you think that god is flawed and constantly makes mistakes!

You know you're ripping off The Far Side when even your dinosaurs wear cat-eye glasses.

Earth was forever changed after an enormous asteroid smashed into our planet at the end of the Cretaceous period. Scientists have pinpointed the season of the disaster and linked it to springtime in the Northern Hemisphere.

very poor quality picture imo, scientific american do better

that one is less gazing haplessly and more having a kickass acid trip tbh

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Friday, 1 April 2022 17:36 (three months ago) link

it's true, the dinosaur has separated from its ego and is just accepting what is happening as something unique and unrepeatable

Karl Malone, Friday, 1 April 2022 17:40 (three months ago) link

Unfortunate how most of these pictures neglect to include the full white and red moons.

The meteor that killed the dinosaurs has the biggest ratio of birds killed with one stone.

If there's an extinction-level meteor impact in our lifetimes, I really think the best use of our last moments would be to reenact hapless dinosaur pictures.

jmm, Tuesday, 12 April 2022 15:51 (two months ago) link

Meanwhile, 66 million years and thirty seconds later:

Scientists claim to have found a fossil of a dinosaur killed on the day an extinction asteroid struck the Earth 66 million years ago.

Scientists say that the perfectly preserved leg of a Thescelosaurus dinosaur, complete with scaly skin, can be dated back to the mass extinction event because of the presence of debris from the impact, the BBC said.

pics or it didn't happen

and i'm talking photographs of the extinction event. release the photos!

just want to check: we covered all 4 of these, right?

In every artist's depiction of a meteor that caused the extinction of the dinosaurs, there's always one T-Rex looking up at it like "That can’t be good."

this thread is one of the leading sources of dinosaur/meteor images

nice -- the very first one in Vig's tweet is the OP of this thread, by Mark S

God, I am such a billy, even down to being a stegosaurus (always my fave)

Bruce Stingbean (Karl Malone), Wednesday, 22 June 2022 16:27 (one week ago) link

I'm confused about the coconuts. Are they coconuts? Is the dinosaur on the left standing on some coconuts? That detail looks as if it's supposed to be part of the joke, but it's not.

Why does the Stegosaurus' head look like a hand holding a bowling ball with spines on it? Is it the mescaline, or something else?

Ashley Pomeroy, Wednesday, 22 June 2022 19:48 (one week ago) link

I think the artist can’t draw feet.
