I somehow started watching this Kantai Collection anime, in which cute schoolgirls with the souls of battleships fight, like, these underwater demon girls or something, and I can tell if this is some sort of new degeneracy or simply pure madness.

 

This sounds like what Lovecraft would have written had he been aware of anime.

I have done the groceries and decided to be sensible and not buy any Dinos.

 

Spoiler

I did by a Dimetrodon which is a synapsid and not a Dinosaur :ph34r:

 

It's from Schleich and I will repaint it for my Lost World Project.

My paleontology friends would be glad to know that someone appreciates the difference between dinosaurs and non-dinosaurs :poke:

I think we could get along.

I love animals both current and extinct and I like to learn about them all.

Also I try yo be as accurate as possible.

 

Although for my Lost World Project I will include both the Fantasy Dino as the Correct ones...( AKA both feathered raptors and the movie style ones) but that's because it is a Fantasy world.

Looks like Comcast is looking out for me. Or it was Century Link trying to poach my cable service, and Comcast being the sneaky-sneaky. Either way, had to laugh at the caller ID that came through on the app (which lets me see the house phone):

Seeing that begs the question...  What's a legal scam then? :p

Ah! That would be the rates that Comcast is charging for their kind of service.

 

Canadian providers are even worse.

@Cyradis also... Dimetrodon was not just one species.

There were several different ones, some very large and some quite small.

The type/shape of the sail was different on these as well.

 

Yeah...I'm a geek..

Nothing wrong with being a geek. I dare say it is even a good thing!

Dangerous...you're about to get busted for admitting that!::P:

That's ok... @knarthex is over there Metaling for me... I figure some of us just need to keep the 80's alive.  Not bubblegum pop 80s... but some of the better songs that sounded good in Arenas.

But... but.... it HAS to be a dinosaur... it shows up in my collection in Jurassic World Alive!  Therefore, it MUST be a dinosaur!!! (and a Rare one too!)

You would both appreciate my younger son.  He's mellowed as he's gotten older but he used to be a fanatic about Jurassic and Triassic megafauna and would be very corrective whenever anyone called a dimetrodon a dinosaur.

I defend my thesis tomorrow at the buttcrack of dawn. 

 

A fire broke out a valley away from my adviser's cabin this morning. Sure as heck hope this gets contained swiftly.
