    I hope they didn't de-spine the dino. That would be like shortening the tail of rottweilers, inhumane.

    Not really dinosaur-related but since we already talked about the "Hobbit people" in this thread, I guess it's ok.

    Clone proto-humans plz!
    At the very least, it could help curb racism, since we'd all have something undeniably "para human" to rally around and ridicule

    Yea but what if they could bench press more then the modern humans? Then the racists would be like "oh, meen".

    Indeed, that is a very nice fossil! Scute positioning in Ankylosaurids (including Nodosaurids) has always been a bit hit and miss. There has been a rare few others that were "in situ" (when bones are fossilized in their correct placements, as opposed to scattered about, or in a pile), but this one is very complete on top of that.

    Chasing other things that could barely run?

    20 kmph looks reasonable though, I doubt heavy set Hadrosaurs were much faster

    That 3D file browser that little girl is using (it's a UNIX system... I know this!) is real, though.

    Oi, that computer was a serious BEAST back then. Most powerful workstation computer available. The normal GUI was actually quite nice, the 3D thingy was just a gimmick.
