She’ll Be Back.

    I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.

    Forget about drinking up, Damon better GET OUT OF RANGE in a hurry! 😉

    I imagine Zed would be carrying something along the lines of an H&H .700NE
    Not that going after a tyrannosaur with a machete isn’t bad-ass…

    There are people who scream, “OMIGOD! TREX!”
    Then there are people who whisper, “Oh, boy. Dinner.”

      Meanwhile, the TRex is looking at the people and thinking,


      As Jeff Cooper said of Africa, in the Jurassic, everything bites.

    Damon, on the other hand, is doomed.

      I shoulda said, “dead meat,” but it’s late. Sorry.

    BTW, that isn’t a machete, it is a sword that looks more like a Macedonian/Greek kopis.

      I agree – excellent catch. Also, Zed’s attack looks a lot like the way the Spartans in “300” launched themselves at the Persians.

    That critter will provide a lot of Bar-B-Que. Someone fire up the pit.

    My son went to hunt boars with the Florida Seminoles on their Everglades estates riding horses bareback with just a large bowie knife and a bunch of pit bulls…Real life Jurassic park, he said…them boars are huge and mean…the other white meat!

    I never understood why the people didn’t just stand off and snipe with a Barrett M82 .50 in the old Jurassic movies. Possibly a less active plot.

      In Crichton’s original novel, there were less than a dozen guns on the island. Because the people running it thought that since the dinosaurs were all female, and couldn’t reproduce, they were “safe”. As in, basically really big lawn pets.

      Going back to Cooper, even Incredibly Smart People often don’t get that wild animals are just that- wild. In fact, Incredibly Smart People are the ones least likely to “get it”- until the wild animals get them, that is, by which point it’s pretty much too late.

      Parting thought- If it weren’t for our genius for creating weapons, from clubs and spears, to bows, to guns, and on up to nukes- we humans would be at the bottom of the natural food chain. No claws, not very good teeth, but oh boy, would all the apex predators think we were tasty.

      Anyone who thinks otherwise might want to read “Man-Eaters of Kumaon” by Jim Corbett. And then go back and read Crichton’s books again.

      Nothing makes a 170-pound human equal to 1,200 pounds of Bengal Tiger quite like ten pounds of .460 Weatherby.

        We evolved out of growing natural weapons _after_ we started making and carrying better weapons.

        Some say that while Colt made men equal, Kalishnikov made them free.

        Actually we do have one physical advantage. Great dexterity would enable us to go for our attacker’s eyes… which will rapidly make it change its mind if we seem about to succeed, since no morsel is worth losing an eye for.

        …though I do agree I’d a million times rather have ballistic or edged help in addition to that.

    Living dangerously, Damon.

    Unless Damon is lying then Jan has no choice but to admit it. And why would she be offended. She reaped benefits!

    Finally got one of those circular thingies, a ‘Round To It, and paid my dues for the year. I even get a DD card. Whoopee! First time I’ve ever been able to afford the dues. Hopefully I can do it again later, in about 3-4 months.

    CHris, thank you for all you do, to keep us stimulated, soul, mind, and yes, even body (woof!)

      Just got it, SSG! THANK YA! And if the fundraiser goes well, you won’t need to donate for another year…
