We Heart Dinosaurs

I tried to explain why I like dinosaurs so much yesterday. It's hard, because it's essentially an exercise in complicating something pretty simple. I suppose my reasons, and most of ours, can be pretty well expressed by this compilation of Google results. Most of which, I'd guess, are from children.

I like dinosaurs because...
...they are humongous!
...I live with them!
...they go rahrrrr!!
... they give you a real sense of the vastness of time.
...it fascinates me that millions of years
ago these big creatures lived on our planet Earth and that
they would still be alive if it hadn’t been for the disastrous
comet.
...they're so interesting.
...Triceratops eats plants.
...they are fun to read about.
...they are so fierce and they ruled the earth many times.
...they are fierce.
...they were big, fierce, and extinct.
...they tell me about distant times and lands and they are visually striking.
...they beat each other up and they have stinky breath.
... they lived log ago and I read lots of books about them and I know lot of them kinds I want to visit natural museum.
...they are special to me.
...they are purdy.
...they are my best animal.
...they are big and they have very sharp teeth like no other animal.
...they're really awesome, and I like the Tyrannosaurus Rex's teeth because they're really sharp.
...they are so different from anything today.
...I was excited when I think of them.
...they are good.

But we also have our favorites from within the ranks of the dinosaurs. So to get more specific...

I like velociraptor because...
...he is smart,fast,neat and COOL!!
...it's fast, has sharp claws and it's real cool!!
...they are swift and sneeky and you would never know there was one behind you until your flesh is getting torn off your bones.
...they hunt in packs and eat meat like me.
...it has a big claw.
...it could take down almost any dinosaur!

I like stegosaurus because...
...of those cool fans on its back.
...it had bony plates on its back.
...they have many ways to protect themselves.
...THEY HIT OTHER DINOSAURS WITH THEIR SPIKED TAILS.

...he has four spikes on his tail for protection and I think thats really neat!
...I like my meat to be grass-fed and free range.
...its plates could turn red.
...they always appear to me as the "intelligent noble" dinosaur.

...of those cool fans on its back.

I like triceratops because...
...it has three horn.
...he's the bestest herbivore fighter!
...they are cleaver and tuff.
...he is smart and he is cute.
...I'm in a band called the dinosaur project and we all have stage names, and mines the best because it's tri-sarah-tops.
...he has horns and fights T-Rex.
...THEY HAVE 3 HORNS.

...of what it's name means - 3 horned face.
