i feel like my whole life as a millennial has just been watching dinosaurs get less and less cool
@softmetals imo aint nothing cooler than huge deadly birbies,
@softmetals I dunno about cool, but giant cassowaries are something I’m very pleased aren’t something I have to worry about
@Breakfast honestly when i saw this scale in this picture it made t. rex look smaller than i always thought i’m much less “afraid” of them. way more confident i could climb onto its back and ride it and it wouldn’t be able to get me off cus tiny arms
@softmetals You can prolly ride a tiger if you’re quick about it, but gods help you if you fall off, ya boi is just larger, and in my experience as a birdkeeper, somehow likely even more tempermental
@softmetals i'm a fan of this reconstruction and it makes pre-avian dinosaurs infinitely cooler tbh
@softmetals as a fan of birds lemme tell ya i'm still hype over the idea of these GIANT BIRDS
@softmetals also; let us be fair: geese are terrifying
our closest sound refs today would be ostriches/ emus/ cassowaries which are actually all pretty bassy and freaky sounding respectively
It sounds funny until you've been chased out of a field by very, very angry geese
@kirbizard @softmetals yeah exactly this. I've done... farm chores around eating geese, ducks, and chickens. Ducks are ishy, geese are terrifying, chickens are ACTUAL MONSTERS. I would be most afraid of a bunch of 2" chicken-relative dinosaurs. I once watched a bunch of tiny heritage chickens tear up a duck. It's like a horror movie out there.
@softmetals there are some discoveries we should ignore and just pretend never happened
@softmetals im sorry but im still in favor of yusuke murata's Giant Sparrow t rex concept
@softmetals I dunno, dinosaurs kinda look like Terror Birds to me nao and believe me Terror Birds are the hype.
Uh oh. Crows never forget a face either. You are probably canceled in the crow community.
@badical Let them come, I say. I am ready for battle.
Majestic A F
@softmetals There are a few fossilized prints of T. rex skin, which proves that it was not all covered in feathers. You can get at leas that :-)
@softmetals THIS MAKSE A LOT MORE SENSE
scientists: dinosaurs had feathers
jk rowling: -frowning- snape was Good, Actually
scientists: -bristling- velociraptors were very smol
jk rowling: -gets on a podium- Nagini was a Korean woman
scientists: -sweating- dinosaurs sounded like pussies!!
jk rowling: -yelling- DUMBLEDORE WAS A FUCKIN WEEB
@softmetals you speak like someone who's never been chased by a an angry goose… or a pack of angry geese.
@softmetals float like a crocodile, sting like a goose
@softmetals research never suggested dinosaurs roared, the only thing that suggested taht was movies.
also trex was probably mostly scaley based on skin impressions we have
@softmetals if you want movie monsters watch a kaiju movie, im more than happy with learning about the actual animals that existed
@softmetals didn't really know crocodiles growled. For some reason I didn't think that they made sounds. That's probably even more silly.
@ursamajor it makes sense but yeah i never really thought about it before. i’m sure we’ve heard it before watching jackass or something idk
@softmetals am i the only one who thinks this kicks ass?
@softmetals NO I LOVE THEM. I WANNA HUG THE DIRE GOOSE
@softmetals its like a cassowary got bigger
@softmetals that reconstruction is ugly why did the article go with that....
@softmetals a gigantic furry goose carnivore sounds terrifying tbh, geese are mean
I can see a remix of the sound track to Jurrasic park...
The T-Rex come after the Jeep braaying and honking like a goose...lol
Dinosaurs existed as they did, and reality doesn’t care about how cool you think things were. So…sorry?
I for one think floofballs are very cool and cute.
@softmetals at that size "honk like a dumptruck" might have been more accurate
@softmetals science has gone too far
@softmetals what in the FUCK are you talking about crocodile rumbles are cool as fuck
@softmetals I think the whole jurassic park series needs a new sync ...
@softmetals i don't want to believe
