Almost over…

I’m about to give my last lecture of Fall 2020, so it seems only fitting to share a picture of dinosaurs at their last supper.

I AM DONE. With lecturing, anyway. Still have lots of grading. Also, I told my students I’d continue to log onto Zoom next week at regular class time in case anyone had questions about the take-home final.

    Well sure, but this is supposed to be the last meal before asteroid crashes. So the dinosaurs aren’t just fossils yet. Nor would the remains of a meal of a mixed group of dinosaurs look like that, where are the plant remains? Perhaps they are meant to be a memento mori – “as we are now so you soon will be”. Or perhaps I am over-thinking this, I have been known to do that…

    This is a juvenile T Rex, with hands that are proportional to the rest of the bodies.
    When the worst of the work is over I recommend chilling out with “God Awful Movies 68: Blood Freak” at Youtube. Christian film/splatter film mixup discussed by the team of stand up atheist comedians. Yum.

    ….there should be some small mammals scurrying around on the floor and giving the big’uns the finger.

    Re: nomdeplume @ #7…
    There were not only fossils in the Cretaceous, there were dinosaur fossils in the Cretaceous. It lasted for about 80 million years, plus there were dinosaurs in the Jurassic and Triassic before that.

    Reginald Selkirk@11 Amazing. I would expect it to collapse under its own weight. Just think of the size cream puffs that could be produced in low earth orbit.

    nomdeplume, left-overs.

    (And you wonder about the bones, but not their clothing and setting? Heh)

    albertonykus, thanks. Informative.
