WHEN CHINASAURS RULED THE EARTH



Chinese paleontologist Xing Xu just unearthed a bird-like dinosaur nearly as large as a tyrannosaur. The new species has been named Gigantoraptor (how awesome is that?) and stands about sixteen feet tall (possible ancestor of Yao Ming?). Is this astounding find a missing link betwixt dinosaurs and birds or just a parrot with severe elephantitis? You be the judge!

Your blog is AWSOME!! I can't believe I missed that elderly mermaid challenge damnit. I'll try to do the ameba. The image of Bill Nye the science guy is a nice touch. I hope you are kicking some crazy ass man.!!

Austin,

Can you contact me by email? I've been trying to reach you and Nate W. in every which way I can think that you would have your email, but everything is bouncing. I have an idea for a "book" (I'll explain the quotes) and I'd love to see if you'd be interested in working with me on it. I'm just getting a feel for interest, but I'd really like to talk to you about it privately.

No it's not an invitation for my son's birthday party or some other personal project to get you to work for free - it's something I actually want published. I'm a graphic designer myself, and I know what a pain that kind of thing can be. Please drop me a line at eighthave [at] gmail dot com and I'll tell you more about it.

Thanks!

Dave
