on the evolution of dinosaurs September 23, 2005

Posted by d.w. in dinosaurs.

i saw jurassic park iii on television about 4 months ago while i was vacationing in sunny new york city. as touching as it was, i couldn’t get over the fact that it was lacking in dino-intensity. there wasn’t nearly enough dinosaurs fighting, hanging out, chasing humans, helping humans, feeding, and/or eating other dinosaurs. if i’m sad about how much actual dinosaur footage was in jurassic park iii, then you can only imagine how depressed i get when i think about the non-existence of dinosaurs in the real world today.

dinocopter#1rather, i would be depressed if i didn’t know that dinosaurs are still on the earth. they look a little different than you or i might imagine, and they certainly fulfill a different purpose in modern society, but they’re here for the enjoying. i hereby accept — wholeheartedly — the 20th century dinosaur: the helicopter.
see, with the military advancements that have been made in the last 100 years, dinosaurs evolutionarily decided to join the ranks and evolve into helicopters. if you don’dinocopter#2t believe me, look closely at the early helicopters and try to convince yourself that those teeth are painted on. i dare you. i tried for most of my life to think that the teeth were just an illusion — just a creative way to make helicopters look cool. however, as soon as i embraced the notion of a dinocopter, my whole life changed for the better.

conclusion: dinosaurs are not extinct; they are helicopters. helicopters are not purely mechanical; they are the dinosaurs of the present and hopefully of the future.dinocopter#3
