Video: Gastonia vs Utahraptor- Epic!

This fight was a real fight that was recorded in bones! The Utahraptor was attacking such a armed dinosaur cause it was about to die by lack of food during a drought. And in the end both animals died, the gastonia died by it’s wounds that utahraptor infect on it’s belly and legs. And the gastonia died only 10 feet away after walking from the died utahraptor.

Perhaps they couldn’t find a statue of her http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dinah_Shore and had to settle for a Utahraptor

I don’t condone acts like this at all but I guess the funniest possible outcome would be if it turns up on the lawns of parliament or something.

The punctuation in that paragraph about the dinosaur battle is totally unevolved. It’s where it should be its, twice, and best of all; ‘after walking from the died gastonia.’

I know that was not you, ED, so my comment is totally pointless.

Unless Bactrim wrote that bit. That’s a possibility.

Personally I think the Utahraptor was just mormon for home.

The video was posted by ‘lifeform106′.There is no chance our Dear Editor or even Barkin Bactrim would’ve been that unlearned!

Saw a story about this this morning on the Canberra Confessions Facebook page. Even gives a whereabouts as to where the dinosaur is.

Canberra Confessions on Facebook has a confession of an unverified nature:

Me and 3 mates flogged that dinosaur statue from out the front of the dinosaur museum the other night. F***ing thing came off in like 2 mins. Threw it in the ute and went and threw the thing off the lookout down at the s***works in Holt. Funniest s*** I’ve ever seen!

This in from ACT Policing:

A patrol will attend the location in Holt to see if there’s anything in it.

Two thoughts (a lot for a Monday morning on one coffee!)

Firstly, apparently a Utahraptor was spotted in Melbourne … http://io9.com/5933960/a-woman-and-her-pet-utahraptor-go-traipsing-through-the-streets-of-melbourne

Secondly, ask MrRabbit Tony Abbott and the Coalition herd; apparently the collective noun for real dinosaurs is a Coalition of dinosaurs!

(Of course Labor is on target for the collective noun of those furry coconut covered chocolate critters that hurl themselves off cliffs … lemmingtons or is that lemmings?)

There’s a lookout at the sewer works in Holt?!? I hope that’s on the Canberra tourism list of attractions! hahaha!

Who does this? Even when I was teenager drinking peach wine out of a cask I never stole or vandalised other people’s property. The new owners have spent many thousands making over the Dino Museum and now some numnuts does this. Even if the guilty party is found all they’ll get is a stern talking to and a finger waggle. I despair for humanity at times.

Technically, it is looking away from the LMWQCC (poo-city), down the Molongolo River.

…and it is on plenty of tourism lists.

Well thanks for that disillusioning little introduction to Canberra’s gutter…

Christ, it makes this place seem highbrow…

Despair about children being bombed in Afghanistan, or bus rides in Delhi, not someone liberating a dinosaur statue. Not that important!

Don’t pull the “1st world problems” BS out Poetix, a catastrophe this is not, but we all know you’re better than that. Having said that, I don’t think every drunken teenager is as conscientious as you, JazzyJess, I sure wasn’t.

After reading your drone I wondered to myself, How do we know that this dinosaur was not Al-queda affiliated?

No this is not the work of humans for i’m sure i saw a giant pterosaur hovering over the museum the other night clearly visible from bundah although peyote does do strange things to one’s perception.

No this is not as important as war/the status of women but that’s not what this post is about. It’s about a member of our local community, a business that my family and I visit many times a year being vandalised by d-bags with no respect for other people’s property. I’m sick of people using the notion of ‘first world problems’ to try and minimise legitimate issues.
