Oh man.

When I was a kid, I used to geek out a little bit about dinosaurs.

I was the kid who, after Jurassic Park came out, went around telling everyone that those were Deinonychus, not Velociraptors, and then came the part where I had no friends.

But holy shit, with all the things they’ve figured out about dinosaurs in the last decade, that movie really doesn’t hold up. When you learn that velociraptors probably looked something like this:

Velociraptor

It has a profound effect, right in the area of the childhood. This shatters my entire universe.
