Question #31

The dinosaurs were around for more than 200 million years. In comparison, humans have been around for but a tiny fraction of that time.

We have built cities, flown to the moon, created many different kinds of pudding, developed colorful vinyl siding choices, solved the problem of deciding which show to watch and which to TiVo, produced eleven Star Trek movies and counting, and many of us claim to have figured out way ahead of time that Bruce Willis' character in The Sixth Sense was dead by about a half an hour in to the movie.


In contrast, as far as we know, the dinosaurs basically walked around roaring at each other and having vicious tooth and claw battles until they were eaten. Although some have said that any evidence of a dinosaur society would be long gone, and that it is possible that somewhere along the line there were some that were smarter than others and they could have accomplished more and the evidence would be gone long long ago, there is no way to prove it one way or another.


With that in mind, would you like to imagine dinosaurs as religious? How about gay? Would it matter if they had a particular pattern of scales, or would they discriminate againt each other based on other things? Can you imagine how the political debates would go if one side always ended the debate by eating the other?

Question #155

If you had a super power that did not seem immediately useful, like being able to change people's accents from a distance, (say from Brooklyn to French,) what would it be and would you try to use it to fight crime, make money, or just a parlor trick?
