Here’s How Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur Should’ve Ended (Sorry, Still No Asteroids)

I thought nature already wrote this one an alternate ending?

Or maybe this is how The Good Dinosaur did end. How would you know? It's not like you saw it. (Not a lot of people did—well, compared to Pixar's other movies, anyway.) However, if you did see it, maybe this will undo some of the wanton emotional damage Pixar decided to throw your way.

Paleontologist Elizabeth Freedman Fowler Discovers New Hadrosaur Species is a Dinosaur Missing Link

Making sense of dinosaur fossils is hard (I'm assuming. I don't have nearly the scientific prowess to ever set foot near dinosaur bones except to look at them and go "OOOH!"), but sometimes the stars align and scientists have a puzzle piece fall gloriously into place. That's what happened recently for paleontologist Elizabeth Freedman Fowler.

Review: Jurassic World Is Enjoyable But Lacks the Heart of the Original

Jurassic Park was such a monumental film for me as an 11-year-old that over 20 years later I'm working on getting a tattoo inspired by it. You may think that makes me a nerd (I am) or a weirdo (depends on your definition), but it speaks to the immense power the film had on me, and that's what many creators strive for in their work every day. While an incredibly enjoyable experience, Jurassic World is not a movie that would inspire me to tattoo my body.

For real. If you go on Google, as of this writing, and search "what happened to the dinosaurs," the top result that comes up is from Answers in Genesis and asserts that dinosaurs are used to indoctrinate children with the crazy idea that the Earth has been around longer than some thousands of years. Luckily, there's a feedback button to let Google know how you feel about the results. I look forward to your creativity there.
