Today's the day you can buy a dinosaur fossil. Maynards, in Vancouver, is auctioning off the complete collection of dinosaur fossils from the Seibu Museum in Tokyo, Japan [Auction Details: Dinosaurs]
The collection includes ...
* Eusthenopteron foordi
* Araripichthys castilhoi
* Tyrannosaurus rex
* Dinosaur eggs
* Edmontosaurus annectens
* Araucarites mirabilis
* ...and More
I think there is potential in this for altered art. Lots of you use those unearthed German dollies that sadly have lost their appendages. This might appeal to you as well! I can just see what Carmi could do with dinosaur eggs. I heard about this as I awoke to my classical music station and immediately wondered if my son could attend and buy a dinosaur for the Professor. I told the Prof that he had to post about this today. He added this comment to the end of his post.......
"Haven't you always wanted a Stegosaurus in your living room? I think I'll bid on the T. rex. It would look great in my office. Do you think my students might be intimidated?"
to which one of his regular readers commented....and this is a classic....
"By the sight of two dinosaurs?"
