Do Super-Intelligent Dinosaurs Roam Space? One Scientist Thinks So

"New scientific research raises the possibility that advanced versions of T. rex and other dinosaurs—monstrous creatures with the intelligence and cunning of humans—may be the life forms that evolved on other planets in the universe. 'We would be better off not meeting them,' concludes the study, which appears in the Journal of the American Chemical Society."
Okay, scientists, now you're just screwing with us. (This from a paper that is really about amino acids? Seems kind of a speculative ending? Just saying! Also pretty sure this was a TV show called "V" twice.)

Is this because without that meteor strike they'd still be boss? Well, as long as they speak English I don't mind.

@My Number Is My Address I'm pretty sure you just described the plot to the Super Mario Brothers movie.

Well, this is a pre-publication, and contains the saddening disclaimer, "Note that technical editing may introduce minor changes to the manuscript text and/or graphics which could affect content … ." Indeed, AMA specifies that you should reference this kind of manuscript as "Published online ahead of lizard invasion."

He is all about origins of chirality on Earth. When my friend visited for graduate school recruitment, Breslow sat the group down and said "Let's not talk about research, let's talk about these ideas I have."

That said, he is actually a very sound scientific mind.

Can we please have the story behind the making of the illustration? On the tumblr perhaps?

@Mr. B Is there a version where he has a bubble dome over his head? I feel like he needs a bubble dome over his head.

It's also an episode of Star Trek: Voyager.

@Vulpes Fuck that noise, it was also an episode of Star Trek, TOS.

@DMcK Yeah, but the Gorn are aliens. The Voth were actually the descendants of Earth dinosaurs. /nerrrrrrrrrrrd fight

@Vulpes There's actually kind of a mini-genre of sci fi devoted to this concept.
