also not a dinosaur

paragonrobits  asked:

something i thoughr about lately; Grimlock in his beast mode still using weapons. YES, WITH DINO ARMS. Assuming he has the arm size he does in RID2015, if he has enough arm to punch, he has enough to... say, use something like what Hound's choice of weapon is in the movies, that minigun monster thingy! its both terrifying to watch a dinosaur with a giant gun, and also hilarious

The idea of Grimlock… WITH A GUN is HILARIOUS.

Stenonychosaurus is BACK!! I am ridiculously excited about this.

Why am I so excited about the return of a somewhat-obscure genus of troodontid that hasn’t been a recognised scientific name since the 1980s? Well, I’m glad you asked that weirdly specific question, because I just happen to have an answer.

Stenonychosaurus used to be one of my very favourite dinosaurs when I was a small kid. It was in one of the first dinosaur books I ever owned, and to be honest the main reason I loved it so much was probably because I was proud that I could say its name properly. Cut forwards a couple of years and I find out that Stenonychosaurus has been lumped into Troodon. I was sad, but I got used to it.

And now Stenonychosaurus inequalis has made its glorious return, just as Brontosaurus did before it! And “Troodon formosus” has been shackled with quotation marks and sent to the dungeon of nomen dubium. I probably shouldn’t be this vindictive about the recovery of a species, but I am.

So now you know the tale of my old friend Stenonychosaurus. We are now reunited at last, and shall continue to have many wonderful days together.

At least until another study does something else weird with it, anyway.


i thought that in spirit of this holiday i would make some valentine’s day cards 

Every time someone tells me that my study will be too difficult for me, I have to laugh. They don’t know me and they don’t know what I’m capable of. I’ll surprise them. Regardless how much time I have to be working on it to succeed. I’m going to do what makes me happy. Maybe I’ll even surprise myself.

“Can I see? Wait, there’s no shafts? it just.. grows in two colours?”
“Er. Not exactly.”
“The other humans’ plumage isn’t near this bright. Are you a born leader?”
“HAH. no.”
“It signifies caste, then? Or a mating display?!”
“Not even close. I went out and paid an artisan to apply a harsh chemical to rip out my natural colouration, then apply this artificial one.”
“That sounds.. unpleasant.”
“Yeah it burned like a <<dog?>>, my scalp was tender for days after.”
“If it doesn’t create any advantages, what’s the point?”
“Ah, it just looks <<rutting>> <<cold>>. What other reason do we need?”
“..humans are weird. .. .. .. do you think it would work on feathers?”
