¡Science Friday!

Please tell me I'm not the only dork here who gets a hard-on every Friday at 1:00.

Which reminds me I need to pick up a little radio during lunch since they put the kibosh on internet radio at work.

Didn't you ever stop to wonder why dinosaurs are always naked and so dumb?

Wait, one minute they're in the Garden of Eden, next minute they all died out? I am so confused. How does this affect E85 ethanol? Do or did dinosaurs run better on higher octane fuel?

Dude, everyone knows that T-Rex = 91 octane, Pteradactyls = 89, and Triceratops = 87.

Also, Brontosaurus = TASTY! (as seen on the Flintsones)

Every Triceratops I have ever rented or owned ran on 89. I checked the sticker under the horn. Next I guess you are gonna tell the how to make fire or that my stone wheel is not hard enought.
