A Sound of Thunder

I remember reading this short story back in grade school and for some reason I remembered this story today.  It's a good read and if you've never heard of it then you can read it here.   
 
Also the title to the movie "The Butterfly Effect" starring Ashton Kutcher refers to this short story.

@tdk08: it looks longer than it really is cuz it's a web page.   When I came across the Brad Bomb meme I HAD to change my avatar to include Brad.... for obvious reasons.

@ryanwho: Did you real-     No, READ IT.  Don't watch it.  Everybody knows that the book is always better.

I had no idea when seeing it it was based on a classic short story. And now that movie probably stained my perception of the book if I ever read it. In between all the nonesense and awful, just awful, special effects, I did see a pretty interesting idea for a story though. Were there dinosaur baboons in the book? The movie. Its got dinosaur baboons.

@ryanwho: I recommend you read the REALLY short story and find out... 
 
but because I'm not a total dick I'll tell you.  No, there were no Dinosaur baboons.
