Dino Talk May 21-30, 2002: A Dinosaur Forum


"Your family is originally from Russia, right? Well then it makes sense that you practice Orthodox christian. As I recall, two Byzantine priests named Methodus and Cyrillus (or something like that) converted the slavic nations to their north to the Orthodox religion.
Well, anyway, my family is also religious but I believe in most of the scientific concepts, like you."

Hmm, I don't know about converting everyone, but I'm sure that they invented the Cyrillic alphabet, which is used by Russia, Yugoslavia and some other nations. Before that there was no literature in Russia or any other countries that use this alphabet.

But lets PLEASE stop talking about this, I want to be allowed to stay here. I'm getting subtle hints to start talking about dinosaurs or stop using up bandwidth.

I did a little archive searching and found the Robert posts. No comment.

"dilophosaurus rules
from Chris.W, age 15, Gwinnet, Georgia, U.S.of A; September 15, 2001"

Oh yeah, and while I was at it, I found someone else who's favourite dinosaur is Dilophosaurus, Diloph.

"Robert was some guy who was posting here a while back, slightly before you made your first appearence. He told me that he had read that T-rex had hollow teeth, that Spinosaurus was the size of a dog, and that Humans did not evolve from apes. When I tried to explain how humans evolved, he got angry. I think he was religious (there's nothing at all wrong with that)."

Interesting.

"Whatever you wanted for us to forget about is forgotten."

Great.

"HELLO, DA MASTA??

I think da masta is on vacation, because he wouldn't abandon this site. BUT if he was on vacation he would have told us, so maybe he is very busy. MAKE TIME IF YOU CAN, D.M.!! Two people here is way too little. You post a lot so that covers four people."

Hello. I'm not on vacation, I'd give about as much info on where I was going as is acceptible when talking to people you've never met before. Probably. And I'm glad that you know that I would never voluntarily leave this site!

And I liked it when you said that my posts alone ammount to the avergae posting of four people. Very amusing! But also quite accurate.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?; May 27, 2002


"But you probably liked it the best, didn't you?
*OH RIGHT, I GET YOU NOW JOE BOB!*
My point is that if anybody thinks any dinosaur is the best, that's their opinion. Nobody's an imbecile if they think Scutellosaurus is the best dinosaur. What are we supposed to say to them? "Well, Scutellosaurus couldn't be the best because it was small and couldn't kill anything.
*I MORE OR LESS AGREE WITH YOU.*
Of course this is all moot if you are calling whoever it was that thought Scutellosaurus was the best an imbecile for a different reason.
*THAT IS UNLIKELY BUT SHOULD NOT BE RULED OUT.*
Where is Da masta?
*GIVING YOU GUYS (ESPECIALLY JC) A BREAK.*
We need to think of a good Dinosaur topic.
*ROGER. BUT WITHOUT PEOPLE LIKE DINOSOL COMING IN WITH NEWS THERE'S NOT MUCH TO ARGUE ABOUT. AND WITH MORE PEOPLE, THERE'S MORE CHANCE SOMEONE'LL DISAGREE. I DON'T CALL FIVE PEOPLE A LOT, THOUGH.*
And by the way, Gianna, I think Joe Bob was reffering to your post where you said that if da masta left there would be only two of us."

from da masta, age ?, ?, ?; May 27, 2002


"Did I ever say Utahraptor was the best dino ever? No."

What are you talking about?
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?; May 27, 2002


"TWO people?"

Yeah, I don't get it either.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?; May 27, 2002


"We succeeded in having a topic. Only thing was, it wasn't about dinosaurs. We need to have a topic, but a DINOSAUR one."

I wouldn't worry about that too much. All we've gotta do is pull through this "internet mass extinction" as JC puts it, and then the people will come flooding back. There'll be plenty of topics. And arguments, for that matter!
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?; May 27, 2002


"Thanks for the info, Tim. don;t leave, da masta, because now there's going to be only two people(me and Tim). *OH DEAR. WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH TOM AND JOE BOB? ANYWAY, I WOULDN'T DREAM OF LEAVING, UNLESS YOU ALL VOTE THAT I'M ANNOYING (PEOPLE WHO DONATED, BTW,) OR JC DECIDES THAT ENOUGH'S ENOUGH.*

Diloph has a question.

"I keep hearing that Dilophosaur's jaws are weak, but aren't they stronger than human jaws, and how much stronger?"

*DILOPHOSAURUS' JAWS WHERE QUITE WEAK COMPARED TO LATER, MORE ADVANCED THEROPODS, BUT I WOULD SAY THAT THEY ARE CERTAINLY ADEQUATE TO KILL AND EAT ANY OF THE ANIMALS THAT EXISTED AT THE TIME, (MAINLY SMALL ORNITHOPODS AND COELOPHYSIDS, AND PROSAUROPODS.) DILOPHOSAURS' JAWS WHERE CERTAINLY MUCH STRONGER THAN A HUMANS' JAWS, BY FAR!*
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?; May 27, 2002


"Mike? Who the *@#$ are you? Are you that imbecile that said scutellosaurus was the best dino ever of something?"

Hmm, I can see why Mike might infuriate someone, but this is being a little harsh on the guy. Before we say any more, I wonder what JC's view on Mike's interesting proposal is?
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?; May 27, 2002


"Well, the way they are built suggests to me that their running style was similar to that of modern day cats. The had more robust limbs designed more for agility than speed. Like Lions, leopards, etc. Dromaeosaurs probably could achieve short bursts of speed, but could not keep running like that for long distances. This suggests to me that Dromaeosaurs hunted like Cheetahs (only not quite as fast): They would slowly approach their prey under the cover of some foliage. When they were close enough but still not noticed, they jumped out of the bushes and sprinted towars their prey. Sometimes the element of surprise wouldn't be on their side but sometimes it would. At maximum speed, Dromaeosaurs would probably be slower than several Ornithomimids. Maybe 20-30 mph for those bursts of speed? (this would be my Deinonychus estimate)."

So there's Tim's view. And I agree. Except I don't think that dromaeosaurs could keep up running as long as a cheetah can. But I can see why you used that comparison, when cheetahs chase their main prey, fleet - footed Thompsons gazelles, they swerve very rapidly and very impressivley.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?; May 27, 2002


"Still a faithful fan of ZoomDinosaurs,
Mike"

Do you really think that this is appropriate, Mike? After all, didn't I agree to stop talking about politics? I certainly apologise for any inconvenience caused but I think that you have a slightly unjust view of me as a person. If you would care to observe our discussions over a prolonged period of time, I'm sure you'd see that none of us means any harm, and in the end, we are all here to talk about Dinosaurs, even me!

I also disagree with how you think I get my points across, although I do appreciate that you also wish to keep this forum a nice place to be.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?; May 27, 2002


"da masta, don't become like Robert, after all, this is a dino site. I can't believe we went from dinosaurs to names to patriotic posts to religious posts!

How fast do you suppose raptors run, in comparison to ornithomimids?"

Robert? Who's Robert? If I'm meant to know it's probably someone who was here before I was.

And we've done the "raptor" speed thing God knows how many times now.

But maybe I should round it off.

Me and Tim I think where talking about it weeks earlier. We agreed that dromaeosaurids wheren't particularly good long distance runners, but they could do very fast short dashes at small prey and they where very manouverable.

You probably want a speed estimate though. OK.

Max speed, maybe... I can't remember, me and Tim I think agreed on something like 22-24k/mh...

"Why would I think you were evil, da masta?"

I honestly really want to tell you but we'd all be drawn into a political discussion, and JC has had enough. Any more of this and she'll probably be forced to kick me off her site. And I really want everyone to forget my political views.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?; May 27, 2002


"I'll leave for a few days..."

Whatever you wanted for us to forget about is forgotten.
from gianna, age ?, ?, ?, ?; May 26, 2002

"Mike? Who the *@#$ are you? Are you that imbecile that said scutellosaurus was the best dino ever of something?"

Hey, let's keep things peaceful, shall we?
Anyway, to a Scutellosaurus fan, Scutellosaurus could be the best dinosaur. There's no way to prove that kind of an opinion wrong.
