RANT! An egg with a view…

Today began with early render tests and an image by ~MALvit in my reader, immediately offering both motive and means for today’s rant. Dinosaurs emerging from eggs so spacious that they come complete with room service and a wet bar. I have nothing against the occasional easter egg graphic, but there seems to be a wanton meme involving luxury, large size eggs.

first of all, you need to prove he’s wrong…..
scientist always things there are right…

before jurassic park they think dino’s have “snake”like tonque, now they think they have normal tongue.
true is: they not even can prove if they had a touque at all….

well a snake-like tongue would be less likely in dinosaurs than mosasaurs… so they can have those. And scientists don’t have them either. That would be cool though. Then they’d be ssscientists.

Of course you can prove it – you just have to manipulate the statistics!

apropos tongues:
“selbst der kleine Knochen unter der Zunge, das Zungenbein oder Hyoid, ist unter dem Schädel deutlich zu erkennen.”

its not a prove…. he talk a little bone near place where animals have tougue. he assume dino’s have a tougue –> so he discribe the place of bone “under the tougue”… its not prove dino’s have a tougue !

maybe evolution was not so effective in dino’s days… maybe nature start later to evolve tougue later ? prove me wrong ;)

or maybe large dino’s need more material inside eggs to grow and just breakout the egg at a late state ? maybe the eggs this days was not so effective/eco like eggs of animals today ?

hard to prove if i am wrong or right…..
