I am alive - for now

If I were to die this week of falling or collapsing dinosaur or one too many static electric shocks or a combination of all of the above? Do avenge my death, OK?

I have no plan for how you may seek vengeance on a dinosaur. Perhaps eat a lot of chicken.

I would take revenge by inventing a time machine and travelling back and wiping out all of the scaly bastards!

Actually, maybe I am going to do that, and that's how they became extinct? But that means that in order to preserve the integrity of the space-time continuum, you have to die! :(

We're all gonna die.

But if we must die, I say we die happy by dining on Cassowary Thigh.
20th-May-2008 02:17 pm (UTC)
mmmmm cassowary thigh! The epic battle with the cassowary will be famed in song and story...

I'm sure it would kill me first. Perhaps we shall die in mid embrace with my teeth sunk into it's leg.

It's true that we're all going to die sooner or later, but not all of us will get squashed by dinosaurs.

I'd rather get eaten by a shark, or hit by lightning! :)
20th-May-2008 02:24 pm (UTC)
are those the only two choices?
20th-May-2008 02:26 pm (UTC)
Perhaps not, but they're pretty damned close to the top of my list!

Hey, maybe I could be hit by lightning, while being eaten by a shark! :D
20th-May-2008 02:17 pm (UTC)
maybe shout at some crocodolians? Torment them about poikilothermy?

Should you be using your dinosaur spray?
20th-May-2008 02:31 pm (UTC)
Yeah, but isn't "death by falling dinosaur" one of the cooler ways to go?
20th-May-2008 02:32 pm (UTC)
... that was me. Stupid firefox.

You're not allowed.

Yep. Birds are dinos. It's pretty much accepted fact.

Nope, it was Bernard "Maffews".

Do the birds accept it?

I promise that should you die I will dig out my copy of Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and mourn you by murdering badly-rendered velociraptors.

If you can arrange for your death to be at the hands of a velociraptor skellington, I'm pretty sure we can get you immortalised in xkcd too.

It seems to me that we take our vengeance on the dinosaurs every time we fill up our tanks with FOSSIL fuel, but perhaps they have the last laugh when it causes us all to die from global warming.

Then again, maybe I just live
20th-May-2008 04:54 pm (UTC)
Will do.

P.S. Eat loads of chocolate while you're there. And drink beer. When in Rome...
20th-May-2008 05:01 pm (UTC)
I'll just invade Belgium 'k?
20th-May-2008 05:53 pm (UTC)
Hey, at least it will feature on Metro Wierd

I have no plan for how you may seek vengeance on a dinosaur

Allow Uwe Boll to make the next Jurassic Park sequel, maybe?
20th-May-2008 08:07 pm (UTC)
I look forward...
20th-May-2008 10:14 pm (UTC)
Can I immortalize you in song instead?

Do we shoot Michael Crichton?
21st-May-2008 11:41 am (UTC)
We'll do that anyway.

Personally I shall amend the description of Iguanodon to "Boring dinosaur, characterised by flattening palaeontologists, and otherwise being of no real interest." I wonder if I can get Peter Galton to co-author it?
