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?"

I think that one is probably more like "Damnit! I was just about to eat!"

Was just at the museum of natural history earlier last week and clearly I don’t know much about dinos because I was amazed that some had feathers!

that t-rex was basically a hu-u-uge hen with teeth makes the mother much more scarier imo.

That's pretty fucking insensitive IMO. Tone-deaf at best.

Imagine "This Painting of John Wilkes Booth is the perfect gift for Abraham Lincoln fans."

"Japanophiles adore our Mushroom Cloud Lithographs."

"Baby seal lovers are raving about our Bloody Club Replicas."

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." pic.twitter.com/AoOZYe0hzc

This recent (great) New Yorker piece made me think of this thread:

https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/04/08/the-day-the-dinosaurs-died

Those opening paragraphs are a real eye-opener.

this thread is better and jake vig can bug-off
