Anyone fancy some frozen moose?

I especially like the last bit of the article regarding the nearby Bible camp's future new decoration... :D

That report, while containing some facts, does not distinguish local from global figures, and so is quite misleading in a number of ways. Try this for a more level-headed account.

Dinosaur tail captured in Amber found in Myanmar.

And with that the last bit of my childhood about giant scale dragon looking Dinosaurs has died. Looks like this is Smoking Gun evidence that they did have feathers.

The "smoking gun evidence" is flying around outside your window. This is just proof some of the relatives of minor dinos also had feathers, which is kinda obvious. I mean, if you came across a snake you might reasonably say, "hey, I bet some critters related to snakes also have scales!" Similarly, if you came across a mouse you might reasonably say, "hey, I bet some critters related to mice also have fur!" It's not rocket science, it's just common sense.

2016 started with a gorilla getting shot. 2016 ends with a Crocodile getting raped.

I wish I were joking.

Well, that's a self-correcting problem.

Past that, if you can rape a crocodile but can't perform with your woman I think you're past the point where a ritual's gonna help.

Well, I have to say, that is the oddest (and most fucked up) thing I have ever read... like I don't know what would top that in absolute strangeness or how fucked up it it really is.

That and who thinks beastiality fixes a problem with a human woman? :headscratch: Bagheera's right, you're beyond the point of no return if you can do the animal but not the woman, not to mention that they are still raping a crocodile...
