We'll start with one over lunch.
Dinosaurs Alive, Imax. (Which wasn't on the list, as we've seen all prehistorics billions of times, but she chose it from the imax list. Okayfine.)
"Oooh... Seismosaurus was 110 feet long? Should we measure that?"
Trev rolls his eyes. "It has been recently found out that there is really no such thing as a Seismosaurus. It's a large Diplodocus."
We look it up. 108 feet?!? 33 meters.
At the end of the film, the narrator says "We may never know what colors or sounds the dinosaurs had..."
"Of course we will!" I project in my mighty wisdom. "It's hardly likely that we're at the pinnacle of scientific discovery. I bet we'll totally be able to pick things like that out of dna in a few years!"
"I agree with you, Mom," says Maddie. "I mean--you're not even a scientist, and you know that."
"No. Actually, it's not likely, because the dna......." goes on Trevy for several minutes. I can't even begin to try to remember what the hell he told us.
He obviously still knows much more about dna and scientific capabilities and rules I do. :) So I probably stand corrected.
"When was Seismosaurus first discovered?" Maddie wants to know.
"1991. Renamed, as it was discovered that it was actually Diplodocus, in 2004."
"Let's go see how long 33 meters is."
Which they loved.
And more art. Because.
Wolf on a cliff, overlooking the sea.
And we'll finish up with Princess Bride, shall we?
Maddie wants Cosmos for our nighttime show, tonight.
Works for me.
Delicious, y'all. No doubt about it.
