Re:I have a theory =


Already my theory is being questioned.

I have it on good authority that Dinosaur hair was very short, due to the
intense humid conditions. Also most dinosaurs were reptilian - didn't you
see Jurassic Park?

So my theory all dinosaurs were thin at one end - fat in the middle - And
then thin at the other end. Still stands, unless proved otherwise.

I would also like to mention, while we are still on the subject that there
are many dinosaurs still alive, but are they friends of film stars. You
cannot see them on the screen because they hiding behind a car, or a
building on the set. Again, this is my theory and I am sticking to it.

Unless of course someone else proves otherwise...

Re: I have a theory =


I hope that this helps to verify my theory

While there is not enough detail among the narrow tracks to enable the scie=
ntists to discern what species of sauropod made what track, the wide gauge =
tracks were clearly made by titanosaurs that were thin at one end - fat in =
the middle - and then thin at the other end, the researchers conclude.

I rest my case ;-)

DNA in the time of dinosaurii was pima facie thin in the middle; agree or=
disagree?

Re: I have a theory =


True - you have unearthed a Louis Vuitton handbag...

Notice the short hair - almost like a skin hair do.

It is also thin at one end fat in the middle and thin at the other end.

So my theory still stands...
until proved otherwise :-)
