The problem with /dino/ is that in todays mundane society aren't dinosaurs (blessed they are) as cool as they were back in the day.

According to Google Trends were dinosaurs most popular in 1929, which was the year when the first dinosaur skeleton was discovered by archaeologist Sir Dr. Howard Carter. After its discovery it didn't take long until other eager archaeologists flooded the deserts with their pickaxes and dug up more skeletons -"each more buttfuck ugly than the last", as the young John Loyd Stephens said in an interview about his hobby: Dinosauring.

Dinosaurs - name coined by Sir Carter - was the rave in intellectual discussion circles, speculating about these ghastly beasts and their origin. The knowledge of them quickly spread to the general population, where it became the most popular topic of smalltalk, even going as far as topping the Stock Market Crash and the weather.

In the memoirs of Sir Carter he wrote "Inquiries on the mystery that is the spectacular dinosaur has become the new meaning of humanitys existense: what they were, where they came from and where they went are questions that require answers. But... My heart is filled with sadness due to the fact that the dinosaurs we find all seem to be dead, which means that can't we question them about themselves. Aye, a pity it is...".

The mysterious dinosaurs gained climbing interest during the following decade, which came to be the most prosperous time in human history.
A new marked had been established: the Dino-market, which produced and sold dino- toys, dino-candy, dino-cuttlery, dino-clothes, dino-tools, dino-dynamite, dino- cars, dino-everything. Litterature on dinosaurs reached over various genres, amongst which were scientific, fictive, musicbooks, childbooks, pop-upbooks, and even erotic (RAAAWWR!); the list goes on. Anything could be turned into some form of dinosaur-esqe theme and it sold like melted butter, helping the US economy stand on its feet again after the recession. People were crazy about dinosaurs (much thanks to glorious advertising) and nothing but dinosaurs were on peoples minds and lips. There is no debate among economists and historians that without the discovery of dinosaurs and the commercialisation of them would the worlds economy have died and went extinct like the dinosaurs (may them rest in peace).

Despite the growing economy and love amongst the people problems arose...
When the second world war broke out. It changed how we viewed the world and the once golden future people had imagined alongside dinosaur-paraphernalia faded as it was instead replaced by a bleak and grey vision of the future where there was only war... and no dinosaurs.
The children that had been raised in the midst of the dino-craze were now the men and women who fought in the war; a cunning generation with such dinotastic courage that the fascistic dino-hating axis was deluded enough to challenge... The rest is history.

After the war, shamefully, wasn't the love for dinosaurs rekindled in the hearts of men.
The introduction of television, coca-cola and rock'n'roll to the general populace made dinosaurs seem less extravagant and yesterdays news (which was a plan by the fascist dino-hating axis to pussyfy their enemies and weaken our economy). Since then have dinosaurs been seen as "fucking lame", "only interesting for nerdy faggots" and "RAAAWRING!" (a way of saying 'boring' in old dinosaur-speak, which most people could speak fluently back in the 'Spring of the Dinosaur')

New trends emerged through the decades, but none were about dinosaurs. It seemed that the fascists had won after all...

Heroic efforts by the League of Extra-Cool Dino-Men were made to awaken the interest for dinosaurs amongst the populace, producing films such as 'Jurassic Park', 'The Land Before', 'Dinosaur' and 'WE'RE BACK!' (which were all totally financed by L.E.C.D.M), but the films didn't gain as much popularity as anticipated.

Right now all our hope lies with the upcoming 4th 'Jurassic Park' movie, which is the Leagues latest effort of making dinosaurs relevant again. In a press conference, held by the Leagues PR-consult Bridget "Feathers on Skin" McBlott, she told reporters that Jurassica Park IV would be the L.E.C.D.M's final go at re-popping dinosaurs.
She wnet on to say that "There is no money left. Nada. Zip-Zap-Stop. Finito. For decades has our organisation been funded with oil money, which dinosaur ghosts have graciously gifted us with, leading us to their ancient burialgrounds and letting us pump their Dino-Essence and use that money to fund our goodhearted dino-propaganda. Praise Dino!"
She went on to say that "Now the last drop of oil is gone so there is no financing to spread the sacred message of the Dino. Our tries of saving humanity from the coming financial collapse by sparking an interest in people for dino-merchandise, which would greatly boost our shared economical interests, have all failed. We beg for forgivness, gentle Dino Lords! Praise Dino", after which the whole conferenceroom started doing a ritualistic dinosaur mating-dance which ended in a tender farewell orgy between the reporters and the L.E.C.D.M.
"It was immensely beautiful and yet incredibly sad" said one of the reporters, "knowing that there wouldn't be anymore dinosaur films being made after JP IV, so we fucked eachother good and hard trying to show our devotion to the dinosaur spirit, despite the general populace being incredibly fucking ignorant for not liking dinosaurs!"

What will happen to our world economy depends on the upcoming films success on the box-office and wether it sparks a new love for giant lizards or not. All we can personally do is go watch the movie several times (NO PIRATING! IF YOU PIRATE JP IV YOU HA…

Yeah I made a few mistakes. But who are you to judge me? I didn't want to end up like this. But its even worse having you juding me. What's a dino to do? Can you not forgive me for the mistakes I've made? Being on the registary has made things hard dinos. Gotta go see the probation tyransorus. Dino can't even find a job. I wish there was a way to go back on it all, but there isn't. What's a dino gotta do to prove that he's not so bad?

Is this bone fossilized? Anyone here knows about fossils and shit and how to identify one? I tried to register on a dedicated forum and ask but we all know forums are the scourge of the internet.
I found it in a dried river and it's a bit longer than my palm.

When did you realise that bird = dinosaur?
I'm not sure when for me, about 12 or so? I wonder now why it was even debated so long, look at them. There are still people who debate against it, aren't there?
What blows my mind are african greys, birds (dinosaurs) with the intelligence of a 3-5 year old, with the ability to learn human language (like actually use it, not just 'parrot' it). There's our inteligent dinosaurs.
Also the fact that i can have as many pet dinosaurs as i want. I currently have five. Awesome badass dinosaurs with huge claws for their size and gorgeous iridescent feathers and bright orange eyes and pink feet. They can be really vicious when they want to be, you can see the velociraptor in them, they're also a lot smarter than people think. Smarter than mammals of similar size (like rats) by far. Do you guys have any pet dinosaurs?

Bruh, T. rex with a 12 foot cock would be like a quarter of it's body length. thta's like having a cock as long as your shin. Although, I guess elephants and horses are pretty endowed tbh, maybe the stories are true...
