Dino Talk June 1-15, 2002: A Dinosaur Forum


"But don't envy me because I wish I could have seen some of those American Dinosaur museums you've all seen. I remember you talking about one weeks ago. I felt kinda left out then."

I wish i could see any dinosaur mueseums. The onnly dinosaur fossils ive seen is an Allosaurus skeleton and moulds of a Triceratops and Edmontosaurus head in the Christchurh muesuem. But in other mueseums here they have lots of Elasmosaur and Tylosaur fossils and Moa skeletons (i know they're not dinosaurs)

Man...My winter holidays are in 2 weeks!
from Tom G, age ?, ?, ?; June 15, 2002


"SEPTEMBER 3RD OR 4TH. OR 5TH. CAN'T REMEMBER EXACTLY.* THEN WE GET LONG XMAS HOLIDAYS, AND EASTER HOLIDAYS, AND THREE HALF TERMS A WEEK EACH"

Oh, I understand. Your school year is longer but you get more vacation!
My school year ended today!
Now another two and a half months before I have to go back for my third year of torture! (Just kidding, school's not really that bad)

I'm going to see plenty of dinosaur exhibits when I go to visit my relatives in Philadelphia this summer. There, there's the Franklin instiute and Museum of sciences where I can see the T-rex Giganotosaurus mounts, among other interesting things.

"This is so not fair. My school year ends June 19. I can barely wait!"

Hey, mine ends July 18th!

Well, 17th now! Hey, hey!
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?; June 14, 2002


Yes!!!!! Both my mum and my dad say that I can go now!

And what's really good is that this year the summer hols start a little earlier in my school so when I go on thursday in London people should be at work or at school so only REAL proper dinosaur enthusiasts will be there. No parents teaching screaming four year olds how woolly mammoths are dinosaurs, etc.

In the mag it says that among others I'll see:

Sinosauropteryx
Fuzzy Raptor
2 Caudipteryx, both with gastrolites
Protoarchaeopteryx
Confuciusornis
Changchengornis
Laioxiornis
Archaeopteryx

But don't envy me because I wish I could have seen some of those American Dinosaur museums you've all seen. I remember you talking about one weeks ago. I felt kinda left out then.

"I wish London was a few thousand miles closer to here.

Your school year ends on July 18th?
Our school year ends June 14th!
When did you school year start?
*SEPTEMBER 3RD OR 4TH. OR 5TH. CAN'T REMEMBER EXACTLY.* THEN WE GET LONG XMAS HOLIDAYS, AND EASTER HOLIDAYS, AND THREE HALF TERMS A WEEK EACH.*
And my dinosaur theory will be posted before Sunday. I guarantee it.
*GREAT!*"

JC, it says that the most recent submission is mine, but I can't find the story I sent! I can send it to you again if there was a glitch of some sort and you can't find it.
from Joe Bob B., age 11, Menlo Park, ?, ?; June 14, 2002
I got it yesterday and uploaded it (probably to the wrong file). I'll fix it right now. JC

My school year ended today! And I've almost got my third chapter of DWF finished.

"You may already know that last year in the Yixian formation in Liaoning in China, farmers (I think) found this interesting missing link dinosaur!

It hasn't been given a name yet but it's been nicknamed "fuzzy raptor."

Hey, I read this focus magazine and great news!!!!!

You may already know that last year in the Yixian formation in Liaoning in China, farmers (I think) found this interesting missing link dinosaur!

It hasn't been given a name yet but it's been nicknamed "fuzzy raptor."

It's fossil, along with some ORIGINAL ARCHAEOPTERIX FOSSILS along with some other cool finds will be on display in a special exhibition in the Natural History museum in London starting July 18th! Cool, eh? You have to admit this is a "must" for dinosaur fans. It has lots of different types of feathers, all very well preserved, and it's the smallest, lightest dromaeosaur known! And it has arms almost as long as it's legs!

Unfortunately July 18th is the last day of school for me, (it's a half day) but I'm begging my parents to miss school on that day (we don't have any lessons anyway) and for one of them to take me there on the day it opens to see me. And although my dad doesn't know yet (I'll ask him when he's in an excellent mood) my mum says she think it'll be OK as long as I get good grades etc.

YES YES YES!!!!!!!!
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?; June 12, 2002


OK; I read your bear post.

And when are you posting that dinosaur theory?
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?; June 12, 2002


"I've posted everything that I've received. JC"
Oh.I see that post now. Thanks

from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?; June 11, 2002

I probably forgot to upload it immediately. JC


Jc, did you get any posts regarding Polar and Kodiak bears?
Or should I re-type it?

from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?; June 10, 2002
I've posted everything that I've received. JC


"In that case it has to be the Polar Bear"

Well, I meant in general.

In this case, there are two main contenders: The Polar Bear and the Kodiak Brown Bear (Ursus Arctos middendorffi). Polar bears appear to be slightly heavier if heavier at all (they both have a maximum weight of about 1500 lbs), but Kodiak Brown bears are a couple of feet longer. Kodiak bears also are more robust animals, in contrast to the more sleek, sea adapted bodies of Ursus maritimus.

When I searched for "largest land carnivore" earlier, in an attempt to
find out which bear was larger, I either found: "Kodiak Bears are the largest land carnivores in the world", "Polar Bears are the largest land carnivores in the world", or "The largest land carnivore in the world is either the Polar Bear or the Kodiak Bear depending on how one looks at them..."

I guess it's up to each of us to decide.
from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?; June 9, 2002


"What is the largest modern day land Carnivore?"

In what measurement? Mass? In that case it has to be the Polar Bear. It IS a land carnivore, because it attacks and eats seals on dry land.

It sits by their breathing holes and when they come up to breathe the bear grabs them.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?; June 9, 2002


"It's not that surprising"
I didn't say anything about that being surprising.

Here's a trivia question for anyone who wants to try.

What is the largest modern day land Carnivore?
from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?; June 8, 2002


I'm coming up with and writing down all kinds of exciting situations for the story, none of which fit together. All I have to do is get through the relatively calm beginning and then when I get the action packed bits I think I'll be more enthusiastic. The problem is each time I go on my computer to do something constructive I end up playing some violent computer game.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?; June 8, 2002


"Did you know there's a real company called Biogen?"

It's not that surprising, it sounds good, and it makes sense. BIOlogical GENetics.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?; June 8, 2002


Hey, Joe Bob! Did you know there's a real company called Biogen?
I read about it in a finacial newsletter.

from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?; June 7, 2002


Now that there are so few posts I don't see the need to come here very often.

I used to answer about 5 - 8 posts a day, but now I can only come here every week or so and answer about 1 - 4 posts. When there are more posts I'll come here more often.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?; June 6, 2002


I've been occupied over the days.
from Gianna, age ?, ?, ?, ?; June 5, 2002


Sorry for not showing up. I've been working on a new Dinosaur theory. I'll tell you guys about it soon.
from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?; June 5, 2002


I don't like the looks of this... Where is everybody?
from Joe Bob B., age 11, Menlo Park, ?, ?; June 4, 2002


I'm here.
from Joe Bob B., age 11, Menlo Park, ?, ?; June 3, 2002


Hello? Where has everyone gone today? Or yesterday?
