As a young boy, I was fascinated by  dinosaurs, to the point where I learned a great deal of information that is all out of date.  (F’rinstance, none of them were yet expected to have had feathers and Tundro from ‘The Herculoids’ was considered 100% scientifically accurate.)  The Marshall family discovered the dangers of coexisting with thunder-lizards long before Jurassic Park, so I knew going in that reviving T. Rex was a bad idea, but with modern technological advances, it may be time to revisit a particular sauropod query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced “try-sara-tops”) has learned one thing from our pop culture, and that’s “Science gonna kill ya”, asking: Bring dinosaurs back or live a long healthy life?

Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

    I prefer a long life. These thing always go horribly wrong and its better for a scientists to look forward, not back.

    I’ve already far outlived my expected lifespan (wasn’t expected to make it to my teens), so I’ll vote in favor of using science irresponsibly and bringing them back. Maybe we’ll get lucky and get something more like “Dinotopia” rather than the “Jurassic Park” disasters.

    If we bring them back then absolutely no carnivores. The only exception could be the chicken sized ones.
    If that’s a no go then a long healthy life.

    I am selfish. I want a long healthy life.
