Dino Thoughts (not my thoughts, theirs)

newly found dinoI’m into science and as I was watching a TV show about dinosaurs recently, I imagined what it must have really been like to live then. What an existence the dinosaurs had; all day long….eat or be eaten. It made me think, I wonder if dinosaurs ever woke up, took a breath of fresh air and thought, “What a great day! The sun is shining, the pterodactyls are singing. I’m so happy to be alive.” If they did, I bet they were California dinosaurs. The Tyrannosaurus Californicus. A mostly vegetarian dinosaur but they would eat anything who didn’t subscribe to their political viewpoints.  They also had long arms with which to hug trees, and a rainbow emanating from their ass. Actually, the rainbow is a leading theory of mine, along the lines of the known theory of colored feathers on some dinosaurs.  Scientists though have yet to actually discover a fossil with a rainbow emanating from anywhere or an anatomical clue that one could even be produced.

I just read an article stating that some small dinosaurs apparently had tail feathers and may have used them as part of a mating dance. Now, I’m a big advocate of funding Triceratopsscience and more scientific research going on, but I would like to know how those scientists think they discovered that part about the mating dance. Maybe the dinosaurs they found were also wearing tight pants and sequined shirts. Reading this article did made me wonder what other dinosaurs did as a precursor to mating. stegosaurusDid the Tyrannosaurus Rex do a chest bump with his buddies before going to the dino bar to seek a potential mate? Did the Triceratops, the one with 3 big horns on its head, do an acrobatic horn stand to impress the ladies? Did the Stegosaurus, the one with the large, bony fins up and downBrachiosauraus its back, do a fin dance or a fin “wave” while purring like a kitten? That would be cool huh? Did the Brachiosaurus, the huge dinosaurs with the long neck and tail, do a seductive belly dance or neck snake dance?  The Velociraptors were a nasty, aggressive bunch.  Maybe they were into S & M.Velociraptors
