Dino Talk Feb. 4-8 2002: A Dinosaur Forum


We need more people here.

Hey, here's some trivia.

1)When and by who was D.torosus described

2)Who discovered the Edmontosaurus tail vertbrae with a healed-over T-rex bight mark.
(you need to know your Tyrannosaurs for this trivia)

from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; February 8, 2002


Yeah, great st... well, it isn't a story yet but given a few more episodes it will be a story and a good one at that T - Master.

It's a shame there are only six people here now; this is the golden age of dinosaur deathmatches on ZoomDinosaurs, and there's only six people!
from da masta, age 14, ?, ?, ?; February 8, 2002


Hello; isn't ANYONE ELSE going on the science forum?
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; February 7, 2002


Hey T-Master!
I like your story!
One thing I just wanted to comment on is that the actual time of discovery of T-rex is uncertain. The first good skeleton-the one Osborn described in 1905-was unearthed by Barnum Brown in 1902.
But there were a number of fossils that have a high chance of being T-rex fossils, like Cope's Manospondylus gigas (1892).

"Two question, Da Masta: When will you use Razorclaw and Slasher, or Indiana Jones or any other DWF characters?"

Oh, WHEN?

Heh - heh, the story hasn't even begun! They'll be like 1 million parts to it when it's over! Oh, they'll be there soon enough; relatively to the length I want the novel to be they should be there from quite early on.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; February 6, 2002


Well, I'm very interested in your story da masta, but I can't blame you for not writing it more. I'm lazy too.
from Gianna, age ?, ?, ?, ?; February 6, 2002


Thanks Tim M.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; February 6, 2002


"Two question, Da Masta: When will you use Razorclaw and Slasher, or Indiana Jones or any other DWF characters?"

Certainly. Razorclaw and Slasher will be in the story soon enough; they are a vital part of it. I think I ought to have Indiana Jones there too; he'll be one of the special guests invited to see the first match with me as CEO. And of course there will be people from this site, you'll all be there, if you have objections then please post now, and Joe Bob I do want to have you there. You are the overall boss of DWF; you are important there. Don't worry; you'll all be good guys. And the "John" and "Leonard" characters there are not going to be the ones from this site. Like the Horner in Honkie's Old Blood, he's not THE Horner, but a Horner; inspired by the real Horner. I would also like to say that I do not think that John or Leonard from this site would do any of the atrocities that will happen later on, no offense to them... they are welcome to use my name for negative characters in their stories if they become site supporters, I would like to repeat that I do not think that they are anything like the people that will be in my "novel."

If you have any objections Joe Bob you are welcome to tell me as well.

"Is there any other special name for big roads which link large cities far apart together?"
Yes, Interstate Highways are the equivalent of European Motorways.

from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; February 6, 2002


""White Fang and Call of the Wild"
I read both of those books!"

Great! Ever read more modern stuff? Jaws, Jaws 2, JP, The Lost World, Judge Dredd?

I've seen all of them anyway, but TV and books are so different. And the original stories are different from the films. Sometimes I wish that scenario writers didn't change the plot so much.

England seems to be famous for: The Queen, rubbish transport, rubbish NHS system, Tony Blair (Pointy ears, big toothy annoying smile,) London, angry farmers ever protesting. Russia is stereotyped a lot: People in big furry hats, that dance, lots of snow, polar bears everywhere, the Mafia, Yeltsin, (Arrrgghhhh!) the revolution, hot spas. I wish there where more positive stereotypes. Nah. I wish there where none at all.

"I check the dinoFiction section every day(come on, da masta)."

Is that "come on, you have to check the DinoFiction more often," or "come on and hurry up with your story!"

Oh, and thanks for telling me how to make this my home page JC.
from da masta, age 14, Everyone knows already anyway, ?, ?; February 5, 2002
You're welcome. JC


You guys and girls got motorways in America? Is there any other special name for big roads which link large cities far apart together? I might need a lot of research on how the FBI etc. works to do some of the stuff in my story...
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; February 5, 2002


Oops, I meant one question... Not "two question".
from Joe Bob B., age 10, Menlo Park, ?, ?; February 5, 2002


Two question, Da Masta: When will you use Razorclaw and Slasher, or Indiana Jones or any other DWF characters?
from Joe Bob, age 10, Menlo Park, California, You figure it out., ?; February 5, 2002


"White Fang and Call of the Wild"
I read both of those books!

from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; February 5, 2002


""WHY? What the hell was the point?"
Well, there were several reasons. *THAT WAS NOT MY MAIN POINT; BUT OK.*
First, us humans had just made it into space for the first time(Sputnik 1) and we were trying to discover and conquer space. As you can see, now that we have "conquered" space it has helped us alot. *ARE YOU BEING SARCASTIC?*
(Cell phones, GP systems,weather sattelites like GOES I-M...) *OK; YOU'RE NOT.*
But the real important thing was that U.S.A. and the U.S.S.R. were the two world superpowers and a "space race". So both countries were motivated to get to the moon. And we got there first! *OK, OK, NO NEED TO RUB IT IN.* So that's why we tried to get to the moon."

"Has anybody heard of Syntarsus? *ME!*
It is now called Megapnosaurus! *RIGHT.*
Sytarsus was already a genus of beetle before a dinosaur was called Syntarsus."

Hey, I like entomology! What type of beetle?
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; February 4, 2002


JC do you know how I can make ZoomDinosaurs.com my Home Page?
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; February 4, 2002
Go to your browser's "Preferences" window (usually under the EDIT menu). In Explorer, choose "Web browser" and click on "Home/Search." In Netscape go to the section called Navigator, then you'll see a part labeled "Home page". Then type in the URL you want as your home page.


""So what's my reading level?"
Seems quite good to me!"

Yay! Wait until part III comes out! I don't think there'll be any violence in that one; but it is important to read it if you are a regular reader. (You'll need a strong stomach for when the seige really begins. In a few more parts. Part 8 or something.) It's point isn't just violence you know. I've read Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn as well. I like Jack London books. White Fang and Call of the Wild.

"Not always"
I think spelled is what we use for the past participle. "Spelt" is rarely if ever used.

from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; February 4, 2002


"I know 100% that _Harpymimus_ was"
So do I. I should have said:"Maybe the Eagle is named for the same Myhtological creature as Harpymimus."

from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; February 4, 2002


If anyone's wondering why I spend so much time here:

Virtually my whole class (except for 1 boy and some girls) are perverts. Anything reminds them of dirty stuff. So I have few people I can talk to about things that matter. Few people who aren't obsessed with what you have to say and behave like to be cool, etc.

from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; February 4, 2002


"Hmmm... HARPagornis moorei. Reminds me of Harpymimus. Maybe they were both named for the Harpy( bird monster from Greek mythology)."

I know 100% that _Harpymimus_ was, but I don't know about the eagle. That's almost certain, though.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; February 4, 2002


Oh; right. Sorry then, Tom.

It's a shame that people in countries like Brazil can't take a good example from NZ and think of the enviroment more.
