They’re making me angry too, but I’m okay! I’m not the one with the problem here, and I’m super not doing anything wrong, so it’s not on me to solve their problems.
When complete strangers come into my ask box and says “hey, you should make yourself uncomfortable so I don’t have to be uncomfortable,” I frankly don’t care one bit about their comfort. I’m not going to kowtow to emotional blackmail and go out of my way, in the process exacerbating my own depression, mania, and anxiety so other people don’t have panic attacks that could be easily prevented by blacklisting the word “whitewashing.”
Weren’t they V. mongoliensis in the novel? Found in China? Or did I make that up? Still your taxonomy is totally correct for the movie.
The raptors in the novel were referred to as V. mongoliensis because the amber was found in china, suggesting that they’re actually misclassified Achillobator giganticus, a close relative of both raptor species previously discussed. The difference between Achillobator giganticus and the other types of “raptor” is in the serration of their teeth. Achillobator is in a different subfamily, but the same family and clade.
There’s also a chance that they’re genetically engineered versions of mongoliensis designed to appear less like modern-day birds and more like what potential consumers expect of a velociraptor, which is essentially Deinonychus.
Oh Dan. I’m so sorry. Call me if you need me, anytime, day or night.
*offers hugs* let us know if there is anything we can do for you.
Thanks you guys, I’ll be sure to seek any support I need!
Hope all goes well.
Thank you muchly, but it will not. We’re just waiting now, we called in a priest to perform last rites. I should be okay as well, thank you for your support!
My professor just referred to “let the river run” and sang a bar of it and I essentially did a spit-take
For those of you who didn’t know me when I was 14, for a year I went to the same public high school that my sisters had gone to, and all four of us were in choir when we were there.
The school’s alumni song was “let the river run,” so at every concert, the alumni were invited to join the choir onstage and sing it with them. Of course, the alumni rarely did this, but every choir had to sing it, and nobody was really into “let the river run.”
So my sisters and I all have very approximate knowledge of the lyrics, the type of knowledge that is clearly lacking when sung solo, but almost undetectable when sung in a choir full of people who do know the words.
"Leeeeeeet the river runnnnnnn, let all the hahhhhhh ah face the naaaaaation, come, the new Jerusalem… it’s aaaaaaaasking ahhh nuh taaaaaking, uuhhhhh nuhhhhh, baaaaaking, ohhhhhhh, jonathan frake-ing! They’re ba na na na na, ba na na na na na, ba na na na na, our sons and daughters!"
