    Because every single product should be available in both Star Wars and dinosaur themes, this is the $15 silicon T-Rex Oven Mitt designed and sold by ThinkGeek. It can pick up hot pans with its mouth without burning your hand. Presumably, it can also be slathered with lube and... / Continue →

    Because people in t-rex costume videos are the new 'what happens when you put a red-hot ball of nickel on something' videos, this is a short clip of a t-rex doing flips on a trampoline. Admittedly, I thought it was pretty mesmerizing to watch. Like watching water boil, if wat... / Continue →

    Because plastic milk crates nailed to the wall aren't fancy enough for some people, this is the Dinosaur Decorative Wall Shelving available from expand furniture. It's not actually one piece though, it's a bunch of interlocking pieces you assemble yourself, so you can customiz... / Continue →

    I don't think I've ever seen an ear so close before. These are the dinosaur earrings available from I Heart These Things (which I do, dearly). They come in t-rex and brontosaurus varieties in several different finishes for only a couple bucks apiece. I want a couple pairs of... / Continue →

    This is a short video edited by Matt "Roman Holiday" Anderson of a series of closeups from Jurassic Park. I think that by only watching the closeups, you can basically tell the entire story of Jurassic Park, provided you don't expect that story to make any sense whatsoever. A... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of shots from Toy Fair 2015 (think Renaissance faire but with fewer busty maidens and grilled turkey legs and more toys) in New York City featuring the upcoming Jurassic World LEGO sets. There will be five total sets including the $129 Indominus Rex Breakout,... / Continue →

    Note: Video is NSFW on account of a green, 12-foot dino peen at the end of the song around 1:20. This is a video from FOXADHD featuring a 'Scientifically Accurate' version of Barney the dinosaur. Apparently he wouldn't have been as friendly as the 90's children's show may hav... / Continue →

    This is 'Jurassic Sweet', a mashup by artist Alejo Malia imagining dinosaurs as delicious treats. And here I've thought dinosaurs were sweet enough without a sugary coating. Speaking of -- what do you think dinosaurs smelled like? Because in my mind velociraptors smelled lik... / Continue →

    Meet Dreadnoughtus schrani, a newly described species of herbivorous dinosaur so massive paleontologists named it after 20th century dreadnought sailing ships because the f***er was so big it probably wasn't afraid of anything. Although maybe the one whose bones were discovere... / Continue →

    These are the Tricera Hi-Tops from Archaix Laboratories. They're currently only a Kickstarter project but with enough stolen credit card numbers I plan to make them a reality. $88 gets a pair of any children's size, and $99 any adult size up to a men's 13. Plus they're Velcr... / 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 →

    This is the Rampaging Kaiju Garden Gnome available from ThinkGeek ($25). It stands 9-inches tall and is in the middle of eating a bunch of gnomes. Can you believe it can actually hold things in its little arms? That's cute. Still, I'd like to see this thing go head-to-head ... / Continue →

    Meet Boomer, a new rolling robotic dinosaur toy from the makers of Zoomer, the robotic dog. I am not familiar with Zoomer. Boomer rolls around making dinosaur noises, changing his eye color, and can follow your hand and try to bite it. Apparently he can also be trained to l... / Continue →

    These are Wine-O-Saurs, handcrafted wooden wine bottle holders that look like dinosaurs. They come in Stegosaurus, Parasaur and Dimetrodon species and are the brainchild of Pete Betcher, who sells them in his Etsy store TheBackPackShoppe for $40 apiece (along with Triforce and... / Continue →

    Meet Nanuqsaurus, a miniature cousin of the t-rex that roamed northern Alaska some 70-million years ago. Roaming northern Alaska now? SASQUATCH. While this has been called a dwarf or pygmy in some quarters, it is hardly small with an estimated size of around 5 m in total le... / Continue →

    This is an animated gif of a chicken wearing a prosthetic tail to counterbalance its weight and make it walk like a dinosaur. It was part of the research conducted by Bruno Grossi of the Universidad de Chile for a recently published paper, appropriately titled, "Walking Like D... / Continue →

    Remember the opening scene in Jurassic Park when they're trying to unload a raptor and it yanks that dude into its transport cage and murders him? (Video after the jump) Well now that cage is on eBay, and you and I are going halvsies. "Not interested." I SAID WE'RE GOING F*... / Continue →

    Come hither. This is a paper t-rex optical illusion that appears to follow you with its head as you walk around it. Cool, but I still want one of those creepy paintings that follows you with its eyes as you move around the room. "Don't masturbate paintings" I call them. Kee... / Continue →
