Recently my brother Art confessed to being a dinosaur because he dislikes web video snippets which would work much better as an article (I share the same feeling).
But that got me to thinking: why is being a dinosaur a bad thing?
Sure, they’re extinct. But:
- They ruled the Earth for hundreds of millions of years.
- They supplanted early mammals, or at least mammal-like creatures, and kept them suppressed for eons.
- It took a giant 10 kilometer diameter asteroid or comet impacting the Earth to knock them out.
There’s nothing shameful about being a dinosaur. Except for the being extinct part. And, hey, everything dies eventually :).
