Here鈥檚 one good thing to come out of 2020:
Paleontologists completed a life-sized replica of Sue, the most complete T. Rex ever found.
Tumblr media
And she is freaking GORGEOUS!
As I read more about this beauty, I found out some new details regarding things I thought I previously knew about the beast that was Tyrannosaurus Rex, and I鈥檓 going to share them with you.
First, and most obvious, her size:
Tumblr media
This is nothing new, we all figured T. Rex was big, but I for one never stopped to consider exactly how big it was. Nobody ever really knows what to imagine when they read about something the size of a whale that walked around and ate everything it could kill.聽
Speaking of eating things, I just want to remind you all that T. Rex had--by miles--the strongest bite of any terrestrial animal living or dead, somewhere around six and a half tons of force. That鈥檚 over six times greater than the current estimate of what Allosaurus聽was capable of, and three times what was delivered by the highest measured reading of the living title holder--the estuarine crocodile. It didn鈥檛 have to waste time swinging its head open-mouthed like聽Saurophaganax for a little extra oomph, or grow fancy serrated teeth like聽Carcharodontosaurus聽to cut pieces out of its prey. It opted for the simplest approach: get its mouth around something and crush it to death; imagine the full weight of an elephant on whatever was between this thing鈥檚 jaws.
鈥淗ow did it find something to eat?鈥 I hear you asking. 鈥淚t can鈥檛 see something if it doesn鈥檛 move, right?鈥
Listen, I love Jurassic Park too, but that鈥檚 a big crock of shit.
Tumblr media
Notice how both her eyes face forward. That gives her binocular vision (the ability to focus both eyes on one target, like you and I). More importantly it means she has impeccable depth perception due to overlapping fields of vision from each, large, eyeball. Researchers agree that T. Rex not only had incredible vision, but that it was probably better than most modern animals--including eagles, hawks, and owls--and that she could likely spot something three and a half miles away. If something that big can see that well, it doesn鈥檛 matter if you move or not, she鈥檇 be able to tell if it was an animal trying to hide or a piece of vegetation. So聽pray she isn鈥檛 hungry if she lays eyes on you. And even if by some miracle she didn鈥檛 see you, she鈥檇 still smell you.聽
If she decided you looked tasty, you probably wouldn鈥檛 hear her coming as much as you鈥檇 feel her. Modern science indicates that聽T. Rex didn鈥檛 roar like in Jurassic Park, but rather bellowed or maybe even hissed like crocodilians. If she were on to you, you鈥檇 most likely feel this sense of unease creep up your spine as a low-pitched rumble in the air permeated through you. You wouldn鈥檛 know what it was or where it was coming from until you hear her footfalls. By then it鈥檚 too late--you could try to run but she鈥檇 probably catch you.聽There鈥檚 plenty on YouTube that reconstructs what T. Rex may have sounded like, and it鈥檚 legitimately haunting.聽聽
To wrap all of this up, the one bit of good that came out of the cursed year that is 2020 is that this wonderful child of science and art came into the world, and reaffirmed my respect and admiration for the eight ton slab of muscle and teeth that is this magnificent creature.
Tumblr media
...and it is nothing if not magnificent.

one of my favorite things about katniss especially in the first book is that she is literally ALWAYS scheming. and like it鈥檚 a great character trait honestly because she鈥檚 super observant and aware of how she is being perceived, but it鈥檚 also fucking hilarious because she constantly assumes that everyone around her is the same way. like when peeta is crying after being selected and she鈥檚 like 鈥渉m. what could this strategy mean? is he possibly trying to look weak to trick me? won鈥檛 work on me you chiseled beast鈥 LIKE KATNISS HES JUST SAD

i think just for the drama of it all we should get to vote people off the met gala invite list like on survivor. and if you get enough votes, you're not allowed to come back next year. forcing them to actually step up their fashion game with consequences one vote at a time

I had a dream last night that I lived in a little Baba Yaga house with cat feet. It moved around in the woods very quietly and could climb trees, and when I made a fire inside and the house felt cosy, it would knead the ground contentedly. With the window open you could hear a soft crunchy sound as it clawed at dead leaves, and the motion of pushing in and out with its paws made the house rock gently from side to side and it was putting me to sleep, in my dream.

[ID: A digital comic of Miraculous Ladybug. Chat Noir and Marinette are in Marinette鈥檚 room. Chat is going through a box of yarn as Mari writes something at her desk. Chat looks at Mari and asks, 鈥淗ey, Marinette?鈥 She turns around and replies, 鈥淗m?鈥
Chat goes 鈥渕mm鈥 and looks to the side, reluctant to ask. She asks, 鈥淲hat is it?鈥 He says, 鈥淒o you think... if I gave you some hats... that you could add holes in them? For my cat ears." 聽Marinette processes his question, and then goes, "oh!", a lightbulb popping above her head.
Some time later, Chat is laying on the floor of Mari鈥檚 room. Mari stands next to him and says, 鈥淗ey, kitty.鈥 Chat says, 鈥淗m?鈥 She asks, 鈥淩emember those hats you gave me?鈥 He tries to think of what she鈥檚 talking about, only to remember and exclaim, 鈥淵ou finished them?鈥 It cuts to Chat holding a hat in his hands, looking at it in wonder. Mari says, 鈥淵eah, I hope you like them! I added buttons so you can adjust the size if you want to.鈥 He looks at her handiwork, thumb brushing over the buttons. Sparkles surround him as his eyes go wide. He hugs her and says, 鈥淭hank you so much! You鈥檙e really amazing.鈥 She smiles into his shoulder and asks, 鈥淎ren鈥檛 you going to try them on?鈥
Chat poses in a mirror, hat and scarf on. He says, 鈥淚 think I look pawstively dashing!鈥 which gets an 鈥渦gh鈥 out of Mari. He continues his thought, 鈥淛ust in time for winter too.鈥 He grabs his hat to take it off and puts it on a surprised Mari. Both of them look in the mirror. He says, 鈥淟ooking pretty meowvelous yourself, Marinette.鈥 She replies, 鈥淲hatever you say, Chat.鈥
Mari and Chat start posing in hats together. In the 1st panel, they鈥檙e both wearing cowboy hats and making finger guns. Chat is holding his tail as a lasso. Mari asks, 鈥淲hy do you need a cowboy hat anyways?鈥 He says, 鈥淲hat if there鈥檚 a cowboy themed akuma?鈥 鈥淵eah, 鈥榗ause you鈥檙e going to have time to get your hat for that.鈥 鈥淢aybe I will!鈥 In the next panel, they both have on sunhats. Mari is wearing Chat鈥檚 scarf, and Chat has on a pink sparkly boa. He鈥檚 posing as Mari says, 鈥淲ait- let me get a picture!鈥 and reaches into her purse for her phone. The next panel, they no longer have hats on, Mari's holding the camera and taking a picture. Chat's giving her bunny ears as she holds up a peace sign. She says, 鈥淪ay cheese!鈥 and he replies, 鈥淓w.鈥
It cuts to Mari鈥檚 corkboard with pictures of her friends. All the pictures are blurred besides the picture of her and Chat, who are smiling. At the bottom, the text reads, 鈥淭he End.鈥 /End ID]
(longest image description i鈥檝e ever written, but alt text would NOT let me put the amount of dialogue in this in under 200 characters.)
