Dr. Ian Malcolm not included, sadly.
If you try to tell me this isn't cute enough for Monday Cute I will fight you because this triceratops is friggin' adorable. It has space to hold not one but two tacos, so that your hands are free to sip your drink and you can sit back and admire the fact that a dinosaur is keeping your tacos safe and snug.Read More

Scientist Finds Feathered Dinosaur Tail Trapped in Amber, Ruining All Jurassic Park Movies in the Best Way
Life, uh, finds a way to ruin everything.
Scientists have already established that dinosaurs had feathers—and had set about trying to ruin our favorite movie monsters with other retcons like "lips"—but actually seeing a preserved, feathered dinosaur tail from millions of years ago with our own eyes is an amazing landmark on its own.Read More
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.Read More

Ring in the holiday spirit the Star Wars way with this five hour long video of... well, Darth Vader's funeral.Read More
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.Read More

Hold onto your
butts intractable gender biases.

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.Read More
