I am in favor of killing all whales on principle. Where is my avalanche of 'provocateur' money?

I like the idea of Roman Gladiator types against say a  Deinonychus or a Utahraptor.

You'd have to pick your style of gladiator carefully. Some would be good against the dinos, others not so much.

Maybe I could start a kickstarter for CGI battles of them?

Looks like the Ark is a bust for Kentucky

This gave me an idea...

It's not terribly far from me and I have a little plane. Might be fun to try and find it from the air and take some photos.

If I do, I'll be sure to post them here.
