No, Jim Carrey’s parody of Vanilla Ice is the best thing he’s ever done.
How could you forget Snow? I still say Jim Carrey’s parody of him on In Living Color is the greatest thing he’s ever done.
Let’s not forget Joni Mitchell and her “Art Nouveau” character.
Live Aid. Pfft.
As somebody who has a flock of around 15-20 wild turkeys living on and around his property, I would be terrified beyond comprehension of full-on predatory raptors that size. The actual turkeys can get ornery enough on their own.
Urahraptor, discovered after Jurassic Park.
We don’t know that all dinosaurs had feathers. The biggest ones probably didn’t have many, the same way elephants don’t have much hair. But we know that at least two broad groups of dinosaurs did, which leads some people to believe that feathers are a distinguishing trait for dinosaurs the way hair is for mammals.…
And I hate shows were profilers go into trances, except Hannibal, because well duh.
But this doesn’t change the fact that Jurassic World will leave a deep impression on the public’s image of what dinosaurs “were really like.” The animals in the film don’t have new names to underscore their hybrid status; they’re still called Tyrannosaurus, Apatosaurus, Stegosaurus, and Velociraptor.

Go look up “cassowary”. Read about how they are living, right now, and can disembowel a human — and they don’t even have the same raptor claw that the “velociraptors” do. Take a look at them and tell me they aren’t scary at all. And they’re smaller than the movie’s velociraptors.

BBC interviewed Kathrine Switzer for Witness. It’s a good listen.
It really is one of the most surprising parts of the story. This is apparently from the start of the 1973 race.
I was on our first Title IX-enforced girl’s track team, and the boys’ team coach made our life miserable. But kharma got him twice 1) when an Olympic-quality girl moved into our township, taking the new girls’ track coach to States and beyond in his 2nd year of coaching (while this poor fellow still couldn’t get to…
I’m reminded of another famous Boston photograph.
Unfortunately, stupid attitudes haven’t really changed in 50 years. Women were only allowed to compete in the bobsled starting in 2002 because they were deemed “fragile”.
First Cloney, outfitted in a fedora and overcoat, physically tried to stop Switzer, but she avoided his clutches.
