There's a lot more than three. But whether you chose Control, Destroy, or Synthesis, as long as you have Zaeed alive you see it.

Actually IIRC Spinosaurus is much bigger than T-Rex. Also Spinosauras has longer arms and deadly claws. IMO T-Rex wouldn't be able to get close.

Except a T-Rex is a meat eater and a Spinosaurus is primarily a fish eater. It's not exactly equipped for fighting a T-Rex entirely whereas a T-Rex is more so, especially against something like the Spino

Not only that... but the moment it had ahold of the Spino's neck should have been the end of it. iirc T-Rexes have amongst the most powerful biting forces on the planet

Still, the movie was pretty good and enjoyable. :D

Heh...Never was an expert.

But I was watching a show about Spinosaurus and they said the creature was a hunter.


Pretty interesting show.

Mh, studies have shown (the ones I've looked up, anyway) that the T-Rex was probably a scavenger.

Also, Spinosaurus' mouth could have used the function of crocodiles as well-- it was certainly large enough to kill things on the scale of crocodiles doing the same today: i.e. in comparison to water buffalo and such. i.e. not just fish.

Moved.

I just can't believe something with a mouth like that is a scavenger.

Except its running speed was something along the lines of ten miles per hour... when most things run faster than you, the only thing left is to catch them dead.

T Rex was a fighter not a runner. It was big enough and strong enough to take down those big huge slow veggie eaters. Someone had to eat the big slow ones. Guess who. Plus it had binocular vision like a hawk. That's for predators, just like really big pointy teeth.

Nopez. They killed big slow herd animals like Triceratop. There's enough evidence of plenty of these big slow animals with bite marks from T Rex's that showed healing, signs of struggles. Meaning the T Rex bit them while they were alive. Its mouth was big enough to bite a chunk out of big back'd herbivores. It's size was enough to fight. The simple fact of the matter is its mouth was made for biting things hard! Wouldn't need a mouth that big to chew on dead stuff. I'm not buying the giant vulture theory.

He may have been a little of both like a lot of Carnivores are. If the hunting gets low, then they might scare away a smaller hunter and take its food. But this wasn't natural. A creature that size would need to kill something big regularly, not wait for it to die.

Hm, so there is. Proof, I mean.

Regardless (and gravitating back towards the original debate), Ethan and I agreed to disagree due to lack of sources (and loading pages) for Spinosaurus and T-Rex.

Though recalling earlier years of studying dinosaurs intently (like multiple encyclopedias intently) I can recognize the point about T-Rex bite marks on the bones of Triceratops.

Britain tried the same thing with their students, look how that turned out. Also, if you work hard enough, nearly anyone can get a full ride to a damn good public school. Our best schools have immense financial aid programs that are no-loans. It's just not worth it for the US to 100% fund over 20,000,000 people every year to go to whatever school they want, especially since there's no guarantee that they'll actually take a major in something financially viable. Yeah, maybe if we only had 5,000,000 people in the whole damn country, we could actually fully fund college education. And yeah, we could make ALL of our schools state funded, but then the US wouldn't have the best university system on the planet, that attracts people from all over the world.

 

 

Hayesmeister6551 countered

Of all the people I know and talk to that have graduated college(which is a lot) most of them are in debt with no jobs in their career field.  So most have to work minimum wage jobs.  If anyone thinks this is a good system, hasn't gone through the college yet in the USA.  I hope you do find work with a good paying job, but chances are, you won't. Personally, I am middle class, but I am too rich for financial aid, and to poor to afford college.  That is the case for a lot of people.  The system sucks.

 

Our college system attracts foreigners because it is cheaper.  Mercyhurst has A LOT of people from the UK, and South America.  I talk to them and they say they are here for the fact that it is cheaper to go to school in another country, rather there own.  Foreigners come to the USA and live 7 years tax free.  Why would you not come here?

 

@Sirmethos- "when will it be enough for you americans?"  The answer is; it'll never be enough.  We are a bunch of lemmings that do what the suits say.  It disgusts me how emasculated americans are.

 

 

Force Echo responded to that with

I know a lot of college students too, including my older sister. Actually, "chances are" that I will get a job, because job placement out of UChicago is over 75% with a median salary of 80k and up. If I go to grad school, median salary is over 135k. Even at my state university, the median salary is 55k with a 75% job placement rate, and this is a university you could easily get a full ride to if you just work hard enough. Yeah, if you go to an unknown school in the middle of nowhere and get a degree in art history, you're probably going to be out of a job, as is probably the case in Norway or wherever.

 

If you actually believe that going overseas to school is cheaper, then whoever told you this must be a woman from a middle eastern country. Foreign students don't get financial aid, and living costs are aggravated, and there's also the fact that they're living overseas, which is a drain on the transfer of money in the first place. Besides, if our schools are cheaper than schools elsewhere, then I guess our system actually works pretty well, and your entire point collapses on itself. International students don't apply and go to schools that cost 60k per year and up because it's cheap, they go because they're the best schools on the planet. The US has the best Universties in the world, and it's because of the system of private schools we have in place. Heck, even my state school has 10% international students, even though they're the only 10% who pay full price.

 

EDIT: Exemption from taxes? Oh yeah, I forgot about all of the taxes college students have to pay. Property taxes. Income taxes. Wait a second...

 

Hayesmeister6551 clarified

I meant as in they can choose to live here after college and live 7 years tax free.

 

 

Skirmisher adds

I tend to agree with Mr.Silhouette that Higher Education should be free. An Educated people are a free people, who can work to build and stabilize their nation. A Dumb people (Which the majority of Americans are) are an ignorant and kept people. The Lords of America like to keep their serfs in the mud, it prevents uprisings.

I dunno about stickying the thread, since I'll toss stuff here from the subforum if it's not on topic elsewhere. No real reason to sticky it since it's not an important thread.
