Giant Intelligent Dinosaurs Could Rule Other Planets

Oh man, I still have most of my Dino Rider toys -- ON DISPLAY.

According to a recent article in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, intelligent dinosaur-like creatures may exist on other planets. Wait -- since when is the American Chemical Society the authority on space-dinos? Because what you should be the authority on is inventing an 18-hour bodyspray that prevents people's farts from smelling.

New scientific research raises the possibility that advanced versions of T. rex and other dinosaurs--monstrous creatures with the intelligence and cunning of humans--may be the life forms that evolved on other planets in the universe

The basic concept behind organic chemist Professor Ronald Breslow's theory is that the building blocks for life on earth were "seeded" here by meteorites, and that other planets could have experienced similar fates. I mean, neat, but there's waaaaaay too much unknown. You can't predict evolution (can you?). It's all speculation. You could speculate all aliens look like little walking peenors and when they finally visit earth we'll be too busy pointing and laughing/fake humping them when they're not looking to take their threats seriously until they blow up the planet. "You really think that's what's gonna happen?" I f***ing KNOW that's what's gonna happen.

Thanks to Pearce, Jalepeno, craig, Rebecca, The Halfelven and JD, who all hope the vegetables that grow on other planets are tastier than the ones here.

There are Comments.
  • I'm glad you had to do research to come to the conclusion that if there are creatures on the infinite number of planets out there, that some could possibly sorta look like giant reptillian creatures and are intelligent......

  •  Silurians...?

  • It is very possible.
    And neat.

  • If evolution is predictable then Dinosaurs would evolve in similar circumstances on other planets. And if those planets weren't subject to extinction events like ours then the dinosaurs could evolve long enough to become very intelligent. Awesome!

    Looks like some one watched Mario Bros. the movie.

  • MightyMolecule

    kudos on harnessing the power of a dino riders promo still...

  • Now if only the dinosaurs in Dino Riders were intelligent, they would really fit the article...

    He should have gone with Dinosaucers, as they are actually dinosaur aliens.

  • MightyMolecule

    good point. but it's hard to harp on the geek posting dinosaurs with frickin lasers on their heads.

  • Mario Rosales

    giant intelligent dinosaurs could rule other planets could be an awesome band name
     

  • First!?!?!?
