"I just wanted to offer a small objection to your use of the term thunder lizard. The word dinosaur actually means ‘terrible lizard' and covers all dinosaurs. Thunder lizard is a literal translation of Brontosaurus, and just refers to the one genus. And, the term Brontosaurus has fallen out of favour, deprecated even, and is now just called Apatosaurus."
Right on both counts, dear reader. Thanks for the paleontology post script, and keep those quibbles coming.
