Sorry I’m late... I left my phone at home. This baby needs to grow a brain so it can help me remember things...

 

Wednesday, September 19: What is your favorite dinosaur?

I think it was triceritops, although when I was a kid I did quite like Albertasaurus as well.

None of them; even as a boy, dinosaurs had no interest for me...I am the Forum paleontology counterweight.

 

Leaving the phone at home or in the glove compartment sounds like a splendid idea.

Microraptor

 because having four wings and still not being able to fly is just what it is all about really.

I’ve always like triceratops. It struck me as a splendid upgrade for a unicorn. (What’s better than one stab by horn? Three!!)

Except that it’s my primary means of keeping myself awake when work is slow at night. It’s full of books, I can work on word anvil, and I can read articles on my various interests. It’s function as a phone is about tenth in line of what I use it for.

When I was in elementary school, my favorite dinosaur was the stegosaurus.

 

I haven't thought much about it since then.

Hmmm: ichthyosaurus, meganeura, Machairodontinae, alicorn. One of those.

 

Oh, no. Wait.

 

Definitely the Red-tailed Hawk.

My original answer was almost Magpies ::D: We have a small family group that count our garden as part of their territory. I love watching them moving about from my painting table. I'm pretty sure they recognise me as the person that puts out scraps for them ^_^

I remember there being a Doom mod that replaced all the creature sprites with Barney.

Megamunch, the Royal Saskatchewan Museum's own animatronic dinosaur. When I was in Grade 2 there was a provincial naming contest, and that was what was picked.

The other ancient reptile that I love is Sarcosuchus Imperator, a 40 foot crocodile that was large enough to EAT T-REXES.

I'm punting this one to second oldest NieceBoot, who has a Grand Passion for dinosaurs. 

 

Her favorite dinosaur is the pachycephalosaurus.

 

No, I didn't know which one that was either, I had to look it up.

 

Also she's 3 years old, and can rattle the word off far faster than her AuntyBoot. :lol:

 

Huzzah!

My *new* favourite dinosaur is whichever one survived the Cretaceous-tertiary extinction and evolved into tasty chicken.

This would be a fantastic time for me to have a pet bird to name as my favorite, but I don't have one. :mellow:

 

I'll echo a whole bunch of other people with "all of them", or at least "most of them".

I am not all that excited by the fictional genetic monsters rolled out by the Jurassic World franchise. They get a whole bunch of "meh" from me.

I'm stealing this one!  Mostly because the picture I saw looks like it was having fun headbashing everything.  It's like the Viking of the dinosaur world.

      Welcome to the last 2019 instalment of Getting to Know You, December 2019 Edition.
       
      The rules as they currently stand ( ...should you chose to accept them... )
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, are likely chomping at the bit to step in and post one... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions will typically be posted between  06:00 hours and 09:00 hours CET. (Central European Time UYC +1)***
      3.5 (...that is 23:00 to 02:00 hours RST Reaper Standard Time UTC -6)***
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me or one of the other quisitioners.
      (But my PM box is stuffed full gimme 2-3 days to clear it out...) 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play.
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to respond (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions will often take the form of two day quests, running Saturday to Sunday.
       
      ***CLEARLY I WILL ON OCCASION BEND RULES 3. And 3.5.
