    These are a couple shots of the skeleton jungle gym created by artist Peter Riss and on display in the backyard of the Heilig-Kreuz church in Munich, Germany. I don't think it's made from real bones though. I also don't think you're supposed to climb on it. I doubt those bon... / Continue →

    In news that will most certainly work its way into my most erotic fantasies, some paleontologists now believe that t-rexes hunted in packs, working together to bring down large prey. Clever girls. When reached for comment about the discovery, one blogger covered his boner wit... / Continue →
