Things I Don't Understand Week-Dinosaur mating

Yep I've run out of things to say. 

I knew that was going happen.

I've decided to focus things I simply don't understand.

Right now, as you're reading this, someone is studying dinosaur sex.

You read that right.

So one is trying to figure out the mating patterns of dinosaurs.

The issue is the many dinosaurs are big...really big-- in case you didn't know.  And the physics behind the sex would in fact kill the female dinosaur, if dinos did it in the "traditional" manner. 

Let's stop and discet that sentence...  someone crunched the numbers and figured out the physicis would kill the female dino, IF dinos did it in a so called traditional manner.

Whoever is researching this needs to make a living.  They had to write a grant or a proposal stating they wanted to figure out how brontosauruses bumped and grind.   People are either just giving money away for the hell of it or whoever wrote the grant is a master of persuasion. 

Dinosaurs died over 65 million years ago.

Their mating patterns are not at all relevant to today's world. 

Dinos lived, mated and died and now we have gas... that's what it comes down to.

It's something I just don't understand.

I don't recommend typing dinosaur sex into google images--- my brain will never been the same. 


  1. LOL
    It is interesting in a, let's just figure this out for the sake of figuring out way,... but not very practical, is it?

    I mean, the truth is, even if you "figure it out", you'd never be able to test if you're right.

    My work is feeling really meaningful in comparison.

  2. LOL

    I can say -- grant writing is all about the power of persuasion. lol Trust me, that's probably exactly what happened.

  3. You know what we consider traditional means might not have been the case. The only way we can truly figure it out is if we build a time machine.

  4. lol, awesome post. And I totally agree with Holly - I need to get that person to teach me how to write a grant.

  5. Ahahaha... ohhh Erinn.. you crack me up :)
