    That documentary, the half that followed how Sue was found and recovered, is great. Seeing her slowly revealed and her form taking shape, with those beautiful bones, that was just sexy.

    Imagine being there and being part of it.

    "Holy shit!! Holy SHIT!!"

    Also this is kind of a random thought, but you have to love the guy in these size comparison pictures. Yeah there is this 6 foot tall murder-bird standing right next to me, but I'm just going to stand there and wave instead of trying to get the fuck out of there. LOL

    It looks like both the bear and the dinosaur have a secret they want to whisper to him

    Sue's bones are so beautiful, she must have been a gorgeous specimen when she was alive.
    It must have been one of the greatest moments of their lives, it must have felt like they were discovering the Holy Grail of Paleontology. And in a lot of ways Sue is the Holy Grail of Paleontology.

    Without doubt.
    Seeing a MW supernova would give me that same thrill. Same likelihood.

    I'm suspecting we have had our overdue SN event but it was on the other side of the Galaxy, and was obscured by the galactic core.

    I feel like we were both born in the wrong time, why couldn't we have been born after people mastered space travel and time travel? :(
    True, true.

    "In chemistry, the term chemically inert is used to describe a substance that is not chemically reactive. From a thermodynamic perspective, a substance is inert if it is thermodynamically unstable yet decomposes at a slow, or negligible rate."

    "Most Group 8 or 18 elements that appear in the last column of the periodic table (Helium, Neon, Argon, Krypton, Xenon, and Radon) are classified as inert (or unreactive). These elements are stable in their naturally occurring form (gaseous form)."

    "Gold is inert in the chemical sense because it does not react with any other substances and this is attributed to the stable and balanced configuration of its electrons."

    Read post #14.
    "Gembone is mineralized bone, often dinosaur bone, which has had the individual cells fossilized with precious minerals. It is one of four gemstones created from organisms. Many minerals can be found in Gembone including hematite, iron, pyrite, jasper, marcasite, agate, quartz or other crystal."

    Thanks, I'll keep posting vids like this. Glad you enjoyed it. Check out Henry the PaleoGuy for more videos like this. Also check out Ben G Thomas, TREY the Explainer, and PBS EONS. They make good Paleo videos too.

    Yeah, I like it too, but dinosaurs hate asteroids, specially the 'big' one that killed them all. o_O
    It happened 65,000,000 years ago. I'm surprised we have not had a second hit the Earth during that period.
    We are due for another big one sometime in the future. Let's hope NASA is able to make that prediction.

    "The Chelyabinsk asteroid with an estimated size of 65 feet entered Earth’s atmosphere on February, 2013. The asteroid was moving at 12 miles per second when it struck the protective blanket of air around our planet and caused the asteroid to explode. The bright, hot explosion took place only about 20 miles above the city of Chelyabinsk in Russia and carried 20 to 30 times the energy of the Hiroshima atomic bomb."
