dinosaur farm

anonymous asked:

do you know if the good dinosaur is any good?

eh, it was okay. the visuals were great, i think i thoroughly enjoyed the backgrounds and scenery wayyy more than the actual movie. it was really weird considering how realistic the backgrounds were and then the characters were hyper-stylized, felt like they were trying to tell two different stories. plot was ehh, nothing super original. i was hoping for something more along the lines of land before time or dinosaur (the 2000 one) vs farming dinosaur and his pet human 

The Moon Song (A Million Miles Away)

“I’m lying on the moon
My dear, I’ll be there soon

It’s a quiet, starry place
Times were swallowed up
In space we’re here a million miles away

There’s things I wish I knew
There’s no thing I’d keep from you
It’s a dark and shiny place
But with you my dear
I’m safe and we’re a million miles away

We’re lying on the moon
It’s a perfect afternoon
Your shadow follows me all day
Making sure that I’m okay and
We’re a million miles away”

~from Her (2013) 

Non-Powered AU, Day 4 for TimKon week!

This is an AU about this billionaire heir/ CEO whose lover happens to be a farm boy. They met through mutual friends and they grew very fond of each other.

Kon took Tim home to Smallville one summer and they lived together happily.
When Tim had to go back to Gotham, he would visit Kon a lot and he told him that he should finish high school so that he can study college in the city and they could live together in Tim’s very own home.

Now Kon is determined to do his best and graduate.

I still have a looooooooooooong story for this but yeah. Had to cut it! XD AND that song… I’m in LOVE with that sooong! Listen to it okaaaay?

(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ I have so many AU’s for these two I don’t know where to begin. XD

And now my Steam won’t let me sign in.

All I want is to go to my dinosaur farm, collect the eggs from my argentavis and giant scorpions and pet sarcosuchuses, raise my baby sheep to be good citizens, and look for a new horse because my last one clipped through the wall of its pen and got eaten by a megalodon.

Is that really too much to ask?

you have a dinosaur farm? can you crossbreed a turian?

I guess it’s more of a dinosaur ranch, but alas there are no turians! But I do have a couple brontos, four rexes, two sarcos, something like five or six megalosauruses, four sabertooth tigers, three dire wolves, two dire bears, six argents, twelve ovis (sheep), a pteranodon, four megalodons, a raptor, a carno, an allosaurus, two ankylos, a quetzal, and six or seven mammoths. I had a spinosaurus but a bloom of cnidarians snuck up on us and electrocuted us. Oh! and I have three giant snails! I also grow potatoes, carrots, corn, and lemons, and I have an extensive tap system to collect sap to make cakes. This game was supposed to pit people with overpowered dinos against each other, but I just love all my children and I want them to eat right and grow big and strong. And there’s a giant kangaroo running around outside my ranch, and I want to tame it so much!

Sending you all the hugs!

Thank you. Hugs are much appreciated right now <3

I feel all of your tags personally, intimately, and frequently, and I sometimes find a ridiculously overlong, seriously-im-just-throwing-all-of-my-stress-into-this-right-now hug is usually surprisingly helpful. I hope you can get that in your life, but for now *overlong internet hugs*

That’s exactly the kind of hug needed right now, thank you! <3

Titanosaurs: the largest animals ever to walk the Earth
A new species of titanosaur discovered in Argentina is the largest animal ever to walk the Earth

How do you eat a skip full of food every day without ever chewing? How do you walk on tiptoes when you’re the length of four London buses? How do you have sex when you weigh 70 tons? While the answers to these three questions is probably “with great difficulty”, scientists are tackling such improbable questions after uncovering what is undoubtedly the biggest dinosaur excavation of all time.

In the spring of 2014, a lone farmer scanned his land, looking for a lost sheep. He thought there was something odd about the rocky ledge his grizzled old sheep was perched on. Dinosaur finds aren’t uncommon in the area but the outcrop was huge – could it really be a bone? He called in the scientists. When they determined that the ledge was in fact the 8ft thigh bone of a dinosaur, this sleepy Argentinian farm became the most important dinosaur dig site for more than 100 years.

anonymous asked:

If you could farm any dinosaur, which ones would it be and what purpose would they serve on the farm?

I’d probably… not? I dunno the thing with domestication is that you need to have certain conditions for it to work. 

1) The animal must be an herbivore (predators are rarely worth it - cats domesticated themselves guys, and dogs are really the only predators we domesticated and it was to keep our herbivores in line) 
2) The animal must reproduce quickly and pretty much often (meaning no strict adherence to a mating season) 
3) The animal must live in a social structure that we can exploit (usually animals we domesticate have a hierarchy and we simply… took the highest place of the hierarchy) 
4) The animal must be relatively easy to handle and control - easy for us to say now with modern tech but back in the day it was… impossible to domesticate something like the buffalo 
5) The animal must be you know in possession of some quality that’s useful that we can selectively breed to be even more useful

So… whatever dinosaur I domesticate it would have to meet this criteria 

Conversely: Chickens. I would farm a chicken, and it would be fluffy, and we’d cuddle all the time.
