I really dont think that there is dinosaurs in Africa that are alive. I mean it makes sense that there extinct. Maybe, if it was foggy they could have seen things, after all they said they saw them near swamps.

They were in the swamps when they saw the smaller versions of the Brachiosaurus looking dinosaurs. They used small boats like cannoes.

What about islands that are like what Skull Island was like. Skull Island was real but was swallowed up by the oceans. I don't know if Dinosaurs were really there, but what about very undiscovered islands in the Indian Ocean? It would be really tropical and prehistoric, those guys would rule the place.

Do you think if we made a zoo for dinosaurs it would turn out like Jurrasic park? I really hope someone designs a submarine that can go and discover deep deep water creatures because I heard after you get to deep the water presure pushes you down... Now if someone could design a submarine that could come up it might work. But America likes space travel more...

Ya true. But then what if (if there were any) the carnivores ate all the meat on the island? What would they do? So I guess it really depends on how big the island is and how much life is on there. (When I say life I dont mean plants I mean like lizards and such).


I really don't like the carnivores I like the dinosaurs withe the long necks like a brociosaurus and others the carnivores though I don't really like.

Why would you be amazed? The T-rex hunted its fellow dinosaurs, so if your talking about the environment around them then that would be different but if your talking about food and what it ate, well theres a lot of things it could eat.

Dude, you just crossed into a predators territory. In other words, you just p*ssed it off! It's going to try and kill you.

Not really, since your body can do all sorts of things when your scared
For example:

When scared of a dog and its chasing you: you can run very very very fast.

Your body can also do stuff like jumping the fence (7 feet), climb a tree with no branches, and like I said before run very very fast.

SO thats why I would not be scared.

You said you wouldn't be able to do those things if you weren't scared, and you said that you wouldn't be scared. So, that would mean that you wouldn't be able to run extra fast.

If you want the story, then here it is.

Since NASA has discontinued the Space Shuttle program, which has been around for about 30 years, they plan to work on a new space program called Ares V(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ares_V). This is a try at going back to the Moon in the future and possibly Mars.

In the case of the International Space Station (ISS), the duties of keeping the ISS up and running is up Russia and their Soyuz space program. The last shuttle launch, STS-135, carried the last huge shipment of supplies to the ISS during the last shuttle mission earlier this year. Soyuz will keep the ISS running until NASA completes the Ares program. Astronauts that go up to the ISS will go up in the Soyuz capsules.

Any questions?

I forgot to mention this: Dinos have tiny brains so how can they know that you crossed their territory? Even if its like a raptor it will still not be mad or even know it will only think food.

Timy brains does not distinguish intelligence. Humans have the same average size of their brains, but some are as dumb as you can think possible. (This is unfortunatly true, and don't hate me because I'm not talking about anyone in specific.) Although studies show that with a larger brain, more inteligence, it does not always apply. I think it's a bad example to use a raptor which had a larger cranial cavity in proportion to the head than other dinosaurs. Raptors are not as big as Tyranosaurus which had a fairly large brain, too, but they used tactics and paterns. This means that not all Dinosaurs think food when they see a threat. They think of you as a threat, that's it. Territory is marked by their wastes and other clues that make others remove themselves from the area. Also, consider this: It is mating season and the time when eggs are laid, or when eggs begin hatching. The dinosaurs are going to be viscious to begin with and protective for the survival of their infants. You walking into their territory is seen as a threat to the mates and the eggs. Sure, they will probably eat you, but better have a dead predator than let it get away and contact others and become an unstopable threat. Then if you were those territorial dinosaurs, that would pretty much ruin your day and your kin's.

Ok the only thing that I agreed was that they could be protecting their young. What you said about them having brains the size of ours is incorrect. It is incorrect because according to scientists who study dinos some dinos had brains the size of walnuts. But I agree also that I should not have brought up raptors because raptors were smarter than dolphins and had plans on how to get food.

I never said they had brains our size. I said that due to stature of the heads of the bigger ones, they should have fairly larger brains, still having nothing to do with intelegence, though. Also you say some dinosaurs hade walnut brains. Yeah, Stegosaurus and the others with smaller heads and really thick skulls, still having nothing to do with intelegence though.

Yeah, but something the size of a beaver wouldn't really frighten you. Something two to three times bigger than you should, but with patches of feathers that make them look like overgrown poodles, they'd look pretty stupid. Isn't it just possible that they're telling us they had feathers to further "proove" they evolutionary cycle?
Like: Dinosaur Fossils + Feather Fossils + 3 foot radius between the two = Hummingsaurus Rex.

If you see all of the first episode, you get hooked because you want to know what happens next. The show is well animated, and the storyline is not crazy, and it is only Friendship is Magic. If a guy likes the other My Little Pony stuff, we're going to have to have an intervention or something because something's a little questionable about their interests.
I asked a similar question on YouTube and it only seems weird for guys to like a show that is femanine because everyone is taught to like certain aspects. Guys are supposed to be masculine and tough while girls are supposed to be more dainty and fluffy.
I begin to start feeling like I drift away until the new episode is released on YouTube by thehochmaster, then I watch the episode and then drift away. It's addicting when you watch five episodes a day to see them. I really don't know why. I guess since there are other bronies that support you, you don't feel quite so odd.
