T - Master is rare.

Tim was on holiday.

Gianna was skiing.

Tom G: unknown

Joe Bob was just not posting.

I was there.

So that should just give a basic idea on where everybody is.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; February 20, 2002


"I think its theory one"

Actually, yeah, because if they drank with a trunk it would have to be at least 6m long.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; February 20, 2002


I can't write as often as I would like anymore because I've had school, but that doesn't mean that Ive stopped writing.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; February 20, 2002


I haven't got to be here in the last two days because I went skiing.

What about everyone else?
from Gianna, age ?, ?, ?, ?; February 18, 2002


I think it's theory one. Are Da Masta and I the only ones here?
from Joe Bob B., age 11, Menlo Park, ?, ?; February 18, 2002


Hey, I'm getting quite worried here.

What's happened to everyone?!?

A little topic: who thinks what on how brachiosaurids drank?

I think:

1) They either got all their moisture from their food,

or

2) They could have had a trunk. It's possible; Brachiosaurus had an especially large "crest" on it's head with the nostrils on.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; February 18, 2002


Actually I think that the point of the person was that T - Rex had a stronger skull than Allosaurids, Allosaurids have strong skulls, but they are still beaten by T - Rex.

And where is everyone!?

"Ahem : << I just wanted to add my two cents in the Spinosaurus vs. Giganatosaurus vs. Tyrannosaurus battle. Well, I am now biaised but, I think Tyrannosaurus would win both fights. >>

You are ... ohhh. *HAVE YOU BEEN HERE BEFORE...?*

<< I am not talking about the physical fights, but I am talking about size and the biomechanics of all three animals. The reason why Tyrannosuaurs is more advanced is the skull is built for power. >>

Get attacked by a fifty foot shark and tell me that again ...

*WELCOME IN ANYWAY! YOU ARE THE NEW OLDEST SITE SUPPORTER HERE! (JC THE WEBMASTER DOESN'T REALLY COUNT AS A SUPPORTER, IT'S HER SITE.)

<< The massive skull of Sue the T-rex shows the epitome of a carnivore, whereas the skulls of Spinosaurus and Giganotosaurus are lightly built and relatively thin in comparison.>>

Excuse me ? Your messin' up a croc-like skull with that of the Gigantic Allosaurid. Giganotosaurus type specimen skull : http://www.chocon.com/paginas/Skull.html

<< What the media and the scientific journals don't tell the public, is Sue is actually larger than both the latter.>>

What?? *YES, I DO NOT THINK THAT SUE IS BIGGER. WHEN TIM COMES BACK HE SHOULD BE ABLE TO CONFIRM THIS.*

<< There is another fact that people rarely know about is Tyrannosaurus Rex as a species has a feature no another dinosaur has is, that its snout is pinched in from its skull, giving us a hint that the animal may have had stereoscopic vision.>>

Agreed. *RICHTIG.*

<< Tyrannosaurus is the only dinosaur with both its eye sockets side by side and facing forward, whi! le Spinosaurus and Gigonatosaurus have both thier eye sockets on the sides of thier skulls, facing outward, giving us another hint that they did not see in 3-D and they had to cock thier heads side ways, like modern day birds to see what's on the ground.>>

s I recall, the shape of the eye only needs to rotate a few degrees, in such a fight, you rarely face your oponent totally eye-to-eye. If you have done some research on _Giganotosaurus_, you'll realize it had a somewhat triangular skull (slightly), if looked from above. Also keep in mind that Allosaurids where more advanced than spinosaurids."

IN A FIGHT IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER WHAT TYPE OF EYES YOU HAVE, THEY COULD BOTH SEE EACH OTHER WELL FROM SUCH CLOSE PROXIMITY STEREO VISION OR NOT. IT'S WHO SEES THE OTHER FIRST, BUT THEN ALLOSAURUS HAD A GOOD SENSE OF SMELL. (NOT THAT T-REX DOESN'T, BUT THAT'S NOT MY POINT.)

ALSO, THAT ARGUMENT IS KIND OF DEAD NOW, IT'S BEEN GOING ON FOR AGES, CHECK THE ARCHIVES, I EVEN HAD A WAR BECAUSE OF IT.

BUT I GUESS NOW IT'S SAFER TO TALK ABOUT THINGS LIKE THAT.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; February 16, 2002


"Two posts a day?

Oh man!

*WITHOUT TIM IF WE DON'T TRY IT WILL PROBABLY COME TO THAT, YES.*

And da masta, PLEASE CONTINUE WITH YOUR STORY"

I have done four pages for the next part, and I don't think I'll do much more, but I want to read it through and improve it. I like to do that with my stories; it makes them better. I also did research on the internet about helicopters, firearms, and the FBI and various Police Departments. But it will be four Microsoft Word pages, so you should be satisfied. BTW, I've got a paragraph with Razorclaw and Indiana and their guide in Egypt, and one with you and me at this posh party 'cause I'm now CEO of DWF! (Although it's your idea and to do anything big we need to consult you first. Kinda contract.) I think it was 2,576 words or something like that. It'll be more when I've improved it.

Two posts a day?

Oh man!

And da masta, PLEASE CONTINUE WITH YOUR STORY
from Gianna, age ?, ?, ?, ?; February 15, 2002


"Just to let you people know, I'll be on vacation for the next week, so don't expect any posts for a little while!"

Aw, now we'll probably be back down to two posts a day!

Nooo!
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; February 15, 2002


Sooo it turns out that our modern day crocs are not the REAL crocs, the real crocs are animals like ornithosuchus? My knowledge about archosaur classification is quite decrepid. Is Raiasuchus related to ornithosuchus?
