Excuse me, but I think you'll find the Calvinosaurus was the largest dinosaur species ever.

Archaeologists just unearthed these stars; they are clearly yours.

For the benefit of those who didn't get the reference:

I actually have a Calvin tattoo.

I still have my original 1985 Opus the Penguin stuffed plush.

Five for big dino, but that name sounds like it came straight from some Corman-produced movie or something.

You may be amused to know they named a large member of the brachiosaurus family "Giraffatitan", literally "Giant Giraffe" in latin.

hehe. I guess "Titan" is as latin as anything else, but latin's dead! Why not call it Extremeasaurus? Millennials in 21XX will identify more with that. That dino could sell an energy drink to a velociraptor, and start rapping about how drugs aren't cool with a backwards cap on and he'd be toy of the month.

Binro the Heretic - 2016-01-17

Well, there is another sauropod called "Ultrasaurus".

Incidentally, for those who don't know, scientists use Latin naming specifically BECAUSE it is a dead and therefore unchanging language. A word in Latin will mean the same thing a hundred years from now. Living languages not only create new words but shift the meanings of words around all the time.

Titanosaurus was a kaiju that fought Godzilla

I'm amazed that we live in a world so bereft of common sense education that Binro felt the need to explain that.

Binro the Heretic - 2016-01-18

A few years ago, when I told a coworker scientists use Latin to name things because Latin is a language that isn't used anymore, I then had to convince him Latinos do not speak Latin.

They left out a couple steps for building the model kit, but cool otherwise

Still half the size of a blue whale
