So, scientists have found fossils showing that velociraptors had feathers. I think Dave Kellett of Sheldon has nailed the general Geek response to this news:

"The general geek response", huh?

Odd - I'd think the general geek response would be to not transplant a hideously-anachronistic image (a chicken) onto a millions-of-years-old prehistoric animal.

But maybe I'm giving "geeks" too much credit.... if all they can think of is chickens and contemporary feathers when they read about prehistoric animals, I guess they're just as uninformed and limited in thinking as non-geeks. shake

My son (geek-in-training) LOVES the BBC show "Prehistoric Park", which is actually pretty close to "Jurassic Farm" in that they have a recurring veterinarian character, egg incubating, etc. Anyway, it is pretty up-to-date on the whole feather thing and they have depicted many small dinosaurs with feathers. It actually looks pretty cool: think mating rituals, not chickens.

Give it up, Chapel--Pluto is an unfunny, voiceless dog. Science made a mistake back in 1927 and it took 'em 80 years to correct it. No planet for you!
