A Lighter happier thread

I was chatting with some co workers here at the cube farm today and one subject came up about one of those "if you had one wish" type of things. So I went ahead and mentioned my wish for the "ranch of my dreams" which they kind of figured I'd say since my Dad started horse ranching a while back.

So, the only difference is that my "dream ranch" wouldn't really involve horses, (I got to wish this remember) so instead I'd want a Wolly Mammoth Herd and a decent section to raise my 400 head of Wollies, probably in Montana or parts a bit farther north.

So, to supply us with a bit of a lighter hearted post than some of the other topics that seem to see alot of traffic, I'll ask these questions.

If you could resurect any 1 prehistoric animal, what would it be? Why would you want that animal? and how would the world react?

I have a feeling my wolly mammoth ranch would get plenty of press. Clothing designers would have a ball using wolly mamoth wool, and I can't help but think that wolly mammoth meat would become a huge hit.
Then again if I could only have a single wolly mammoth he'd save me gas by helping me commute to work since traffic would probably yeild to us for fear of getting their cars stepped on.

yep, I get pretty board here at work...

Velociraptors. Why? Becouse they are viscouse and I like the cool sickle toe. How would the world react? In fear and trepidation as I unleash my Raptor hoard upon them and took the riens of power in true Cobra style!

Good one! I needed an antidote for the "immigration/flag" thread!
Hmmm...the wooly mammmoth would be cool but I like the more ancient bizarre stuff. Maybe an Iguanadon or some ancient reptile/dinosuaur like that? If that's too "Jurassic Park-ish" then maybe something humble unspectacular but cool as heck - a Trilobite
I would want them just because they're cool as heck in an ancient alien sorta way. Plus they may be a tasty alternative to crab, lobster or shrimp, no?
How would the world react? - probably just like anyone who is reading this post is reacting - "this guy is freaking wierd"

I give you, Otis:

Mechanical horses...


Junkyard wars, ooh, the things I would be doing there!

Lots of loud noises, and lots of explosions..

Hey Relic, is the iguanadon thing one of the ones with the big sail fin on its back?
If you've ever seen an old sci-fi channel show called Dr. Rhul's Mysteries From Beyond The Other Dominion he talked about how those dinosaurs were supposed to be a special omnivor, because their diet consisted of plants, and solar energy. He basically tried to say that their fin was a solar collector. Dr. Rhul was insane but hilarious, in a real "I'll teach the fools at the academy for laughing at me, I'll show them all! Muahahahaha !" sort of way.

dang, now I gotta search for any old episodes of that show.

and, Tal? Velociraptors? Velociraptors?
Cmon, man.

Scrap, you're thinking of "Dimetrodon", another cool ancient lizard. (yes, I really am nerdy enough to know that...)

Scrap I can't believe that you're so environmentally unconscious! Do you know how much greenhouse gas your Mammoths would pass??? It's what really killed the dinos you know.

I don't think that my source, Dr. Franklin Ruehl, Ph.D would agree with you on that one Robertsr.
Besides, Everyone knows that the Dinosaurs were wiped out by a sneak attack from the aliens of alternate earth (Y'know the planet that circles the sun in the same orbit as earth so its always behind the sun).

On a side note, the people from the more serious threads should not look at this thread and expect a single piece of "evidence" to show up to support any statements recorded here. Thanks!

Trilobite! those things are awesome! while it would be neat to have them back i'd probably rather have either a Doedicurus or perhaps a saber toothed cat

Doedicurus

Name: Doedicurus
Length: 13 feet
Weight: up to 2 tons
Time: 1.8 million to 11,000 years ago (Pleistocene epoch)
Place: South America
Diet: plant-eater (herbivore)

it would also be neat to have a plesiosaur in Loch Ness so that all the 'Nessie' fans could get their wish or perhaps a gigantopithecus (aka yeti) back in southeast asia...

gigantopithecus


for those of you who cant think of your own special extinct pre-historic creature to call your own...i suggest looking up something on this website: http://www.science501.com/PTprehistanim.html then google the scientific name of the one you want to get more info

also, if you're bored at work and want some fun games to play, check out these flash games: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sn/prehistoric_...l?indricothere
