Bulldog Has Incredible Reaction To Actress In Trouble

Every time I typed "cracker" I thought of the rude meaning. I thought I would be the only one!

Thanks for the company.

Of course, you're absolutely right on all counts, especially the last.

You're also giving me extra giggles because I've been making sure to read all these comments using the derogatory meaning of the word 'cracker'.

Watch it again and look at what the big dinos are going for.

What is in his hand. The cracker.

Which really is pretty stupid, because if you want the cracker, bite the holder of the cracker. Don't try for such a small target!

I learned a lot from what you wrote. Thank you!


Big dinos laser focused and expending a great deal of energy for so few calories? THAT is the Hollywood nonsense.

This is MY pet peeve. I welcome company, of course. It is fun to be self righteously peeved!

My guess is that the value of a few calories would depend on whether the dinosaurs were warm- or cold-blooded. A cold-blooded lizard or snake can last a lot longer on a small meal than a warm-blooded human.

The debate on whether or not actual dinosaurs were cold-blooded is still open, as far as I know. My favourite point in the argument is that all dinosaurs alive today (i.e. birds) are warm-blooded but perhaps it was exactly that adaptation that let them survive through the mas extinction.

Looking at the predatory dinosaurs in the film, there's no hint of feathers (so they're unlikely to be actual t-rexes), which to me points towards the idea that they're cold-blooded and so a small morsel would sustain them a while.

As for three of them getting involved, to me they're also being opportunistic at the chance of getting Kong. He seemed comfortable enough handling one, but it was definitely not a given. He acted very wary of two of them, so a third joining should really swing things in the dinosaurs' favour. However, it looks like Kong was holding back, and really let things fly when the odds were against him.

I never said that large dinosaurs would only go after other large dinosaurs.

Would your monitor fight three other large beings for a single mouse?

True. It is pissing ME off.

Unless you were, kindly, calling me a bitch?

(I know you aren't, I just couldn't resist making a joke I would never ever EVER make about someone else.)

Come on. I doubt that's what's really pissing off the dog.

So these giant lizards that require a great deal of calories to sustain themselves....

Are totally focused on what is not even a big appetizer? Expending all that energy for is basically a cracker?

Humans are so egocentric. Nature is out to get me! Especially if I am blonde and female.

Jurassic Park had the same logic, which annoyed me too.

Way Too Close To Lightning

I was hiking by myself at about 8000 feet and I saw the lightning strike the ground, in an open meadow, less than 100 feet away from me.

Still makes my stomach knot at the memory and it was 25 years ago.

Saw these in France two years ago. Didn't buy one, but was utterly fascinated. Happened by when the delivery guy was filling up the machine and got to see the innards.

Tiny blip of a place, wasn't even enough to be called a village!

Hello my friend. Thanks for the quality. I keep telling myself I am going to sit down and write you a long letter, and yet... here I am. Not doing it. What a putz I can be.

Hope you are well.

And thanks for the quality...
