I'm sad...

#1 Edited by LightRain (167 posts) -

 I was on Bungie.net and I made a poll about what apocalyptic event people would rather have happen, and one of the choices was "dinosaur outbreak." Then everyone started making dinosaur threads, and there were like 30 dinosaur threads made within an hour. And I replied to every single one of these threads of Jurassic proportion. But then the reality of all hit me, dinosaurs are extinct, and they have been for a while. More likely than not, we will never see dinosaurs again, and that makes me sad, I started to tear up for a second. These loving and caring creatures, these pillars of the community, that we have been discussing in such prehistoric detail are gone...

Do you think they had feathers? 
 
If the outbreak does indeed happen, I would be curious as to if they would or not.

 For example, one user poster made a thread about how a velociraptor that had knocked him off his bike then stole said bike. Theposter then conveyed to us that he chased after the raptor with the intent of kicking the raptor in the groin region, then taking his bike back, but the raptor was too fast.

Another user created a different thread expressing concern over a dinosaur he found in his toilet, he then told us how he was poor and all out of food stamps so he couldn't provide the dinosaur with dino food, and he didn't know what to do, so he came to the Flood for advice.

After the Zombie outbreak (which i am expecting with much anticipation and i am very prepared for) the Dinosaur outbreak is my second favorite. Man i love velociraptors!!!

Personally I think this celebration of dinosaurs sounds glorious, the Bungie.net forums on the other hand, are not.

Well maybe you should invest in a elephant farm. And dress them up as dinosaurs. 
 Or u could listen to cool african remixed jazz, this stuff is making me happy.

I don't remember seeing them in the first place

@Joker_777: lol true, its truly like missing someone you never met. For example, hearing about someone u never met die in recent times. U never met them and never formed any sort of relationship. And there death has no effect on ur life. While i think it would have been cool to ride a dinosaur to school(since we would not use cars, yet another way we ride dinosaurs), i dont think my life would be any different. Its like if kangaroos disappeared now. Its sad but ultimately, no one cares or is affected by that 
EDIT: Here in north america.

Real video of Dinosaurs at their extinction:

How can you people not see that the new Jurassic Park game by Telltale is the start of the outbreak? 
They will use the money they get from the game to resurrect the dinosaur they found in the basement of their studio, it's true, I heard it from a guy who knows a guy. 
We're all doomed! Run!

Jeff Goldblum would disagree with you.

@super2j:  Yeah you've put it quite well really, but if they were still around today, in our society they would no doubt be taken for granted which is sad.
