A couple of nights ago, Blaine and I somehow ended up conversing about dinosaurs. I cannot recall what exactly prompted this topic of conversation, but before we knew it, we were hitting up Google to figure out some of the different types, and further, what they were capable of.
We are all relatively familiar with dinosaurs and their activity whilst still on Earth, but I feel as though many of us are not tremendously savvy when it comes to dinosaur knowledge. Is being well-versed in the subject of dinosaurs an essential life skill? No, but that would be one hell of a way to break the ice when chatting with someone new.
When I started researching these colossal creatures with Blaine, I couldn’t help but feel a little discombobulated when I attempted to imagine what life would have been like while these fuckers were running around. Granted, you could probably hear them coming long before you could see them, but can we take a moment to acknowledge how stressful going outdoors would have been knowing there is a reptile the size of an apartment complex potentially lurking around a hillside?
It’s no wonder early humans were in impeccable shape – I figure they learned to move real quick with the constant presence of wildly large reptiles in their lives.
Not all dinosaurs were carnivorous, or, in other terms, not all of them would rip your face off with one swift chomp, but personally, I don’t think I would like to ever meet one face-to-face. It would be a hell of a trip to ride one, though, but I can’t be certain that dinosaur saddles were a thing.
It would be truly incredible to see a dinosaur in-person, as their size was so vast. Dinosaurs have beauty, in an odd way, and I find it fascinating that they once walked this same Earth we do.
