    In recent years there have been some pretty defamatory claims that the t-rex was just a scavenger and didn't hunt other live dinos. But now, thanks to a t-rex tooth found lodged in the tailbone of a duck-billed dinosaur that clearly lived for some time after the encounter, pal... / Continue →

    You still like turtles now, Zombie Jonathan?! This is a pair of recently discovered 47-million year old fossilized turtles who were *kids, cover your eyes* boning when they died, which is exactly how I wanna go. No word if my special lady intends to go at the same time, but ... / Continue →

    $5 says I can run through that gas cloud without passing out. In news that should come as no surprise to anyone who's ever been dutch-ovened by a t-rex, scientists believe the methane produced by dinosaurs in the form of brutal, tornado-like farts caused early climate change. ... / Continue →

    This is the most complete dinosaur skeleton found to date, with a whopping 98% of its bones preserved. In comparison, the most complete t-rex ever found is only 80% complete. Well, 75% after the museum discovers the theft. You think I don't spoon a dino bone to sleep every n... / Continue →

    This is Pokey, a robotic LEGO triceratops made by the same person who built Robo-Rex. Now I know what you're all wondering, so I'll just go ahead and say it: yes, I would hit dat. Maybe that's just my dry-spell/desperation talking, but it's pretty slim pickings for prehistori... / Continue →

    Astronomers at the University of Arizona recently discovered two really old-ass black holes. Interesting, scientists, but maybe you should consider careers in Geriatric ASStronomy (shoot me now, please -- aim to kill). As grimy and unkempt as our present-day universe is tod... / Continue →

    That's right folks, scientists have discovered a new species of tyrannosaurus, completely different than the much larger (and arguably sexier) t-rex everyone is accustomed to. But you've got to admit, this little bugger is cute as a button. The new, more graceful tyrannosaur ... / Continue →

    Baconhenge is what the ancients ate for breakfast before battling the shit out of each other with rocks and tree branches. Also, sacrificing virgins to the potato gods and dancing around with gourds on their junk (trust me, I mistakenly sat in on an anthropology class when I w... / Continue →
