I posted this picture in my "Sunday Funnies" post a couple of days ago. Lookie here at the uncanny resemblance in posture, from a comic I saw a couple of weeks ago.

Did you see the NYT article discussing the hype project, prior to the blitz? I really need to go back and find it, because it does an excellent job of bringing out the problems of such a plan.

Lockwood, I tired to read that post you made the other day and was fighting a loosing battle with my internet connection. Thanks for sending the link! Those are very similar!

ReBecca- yeah, a lot of my posts are very picture-dense. Even with a good connection, they can be slow to load for me, and I have wondered how much a nightmare they must be for those with weak or slow connections. Hope you have a chance later with better circumstances- I was pretty pleased with my funny finds last week.

Ah yes, i have heard much about this fossil. mostly about the hype around it. I didn't watch the History channel show for fear of it being like "Predator X". Plus, i have read Bryan Switek's reservations about the fossil itself.
