Fucking Wigan Athletic

everydaypalaeontologist replied to your post:

You and me both buddy, we could have been 3-0 up at half time. I really don’t understand why we lost this one. Gutted.

I know. I think that is why I am so bloody angry. I’d like to know what the hell was said at half-time; whatever it was, it fell on deaf ears!

I generally just depise Wigan Athletic. I wish they would politely piss off. I’ve never hated a football club more than them. Words cannot describe my disdain for them. Horrible football club, mediocre fans and an abhorrent chairman >.<!

Your new avatar is awesomesauce. And the fact your ask box quotes Exogenesis, you need all the high fives.

Thank you! You can’t get much better than Alan Grant! You like Muse too? You need all the high fives as well! The Exogenesis Symphony is beyond beautiful and so under appreciated.

can't wait! I'm thinking of doing another post soon, I don't want to reblog stuff constantly. Also, this is how you respond to someone who can't differentiate between a Spinosaurus and Tyrannosaurus skull: (insert American Psycho image here).

Nice! Yeah, I know how you feel. I’m trying to post more original stuff here (esp. on palaeontology and geology), and if it’s just an article I’m not adding to, I post it on scinerds and geologise, for example. That’s how I feel in my head because I just don’t understand how one can do that (but then again, I’ve been surrounded by dinosaurs my whole life - it’s all just second nature to me!), but seeing as I’m usually in a museum when this happens, I just correctly inform them on the differences which usually helps! I’m excited about my theropod skull/skeleton post, because hopefully anyone on here who is confused will now be able to correctly identify them next time they’re at the museum!

a.) thanks for posting the Horner talk from scipsy, not only is it great to spread the word about that talk, but thanks for introducing me to scipsy, it's a great blog. b.) people who can't tell the difference between an Allosaur and Tyrannosaur skull clearly need to get a life! They are rather different, the Tyrannosaur skull is so distinct.

A) No problem, Ryan! Like I said in the post, it’s great to see more than you, I, and the few others I/we know posting about dinosaurs. They have a great blog, so I’m glad you were able to find it from my reblog!

B) Oh man, wait until you see the theropod skull post I’m writing up. I don’t have time to finish it right now as I have a few things to do outside the Tumblr world, but I’ve been in situations where someone asked me if a Spinosaurus skeleton was a Tyrannosaurus. It was a pretty interesting moment because I had no idea how to respond at first! I’ll either post the guide in a few hours or tomorrow, depending on how the rest of the days goes for me.
