Pursuant to a request by EROSWINGS, a lovely man of formidable intellect and unquestionable character, who recently issued a meme-o requesting a collection of Ten Things ThaT sTarT wiTh The leTTer T...
Although they look like GIANT Rhinoceros these Oligocene Era monstrosities were more closely related to the horse.
What really got me hooked on Titanotheres was TUNDRO on the cartoon The_Herculoids.
Tundro was a ten-legged Titanothereamabob who could shoot exploding rocks from his cannon-horn, extend his legs like stilts, and he could also spin his head to drill through solid rock.
The most famous Dinosaur of all time. Tyrannosaurs roamed the earth near the end of the Dinosaur's reign in the Cretaceous Period...not Jurassic. Scientists have an ongoing dispute over whether it was a Predator or Scavenger and now they are hypothesizing that feathers adorned their young.
I am a Jeepster what can I say. I still like to Bang a Gong.
T Rex still sounds as good as it did back in the 70s.
Where would we be without it?
"Trust is a very sacred thing and is hard to regain trust once lost."
Edgar Rice Burrough's famous Ape-Man fascinated me and jump-started my fascination with our Ape cousins. When I was a lad my Tarzan wasn't Johnny Weismuller, he was a 6'4" Texan named Ron_Ely who starred in the 60s TV version. I could never understand why his Chimp sidekick was named Cheetah?
Turok was even cooler than Tarzan because he battled Dinosaurs in the Lost Valley! His exploits in Gold Key Comics was one of my favorite escape mechanisms. Uber Cool!
The Bottlenose Dolphin. Back in the 60s and 70s Dolphins and Whales were treated as almost supernatural entities and symbols of Peace, Love, and Unicorns. They were like Intraterrestrial equals who chose to live in trippy 3 dimensional watery world of mental telepathy. Sometimes they rescued Humans from Sharks and disasters at Sea...now we also know that that they kill little defenseless porpoises and gang rape females from other pods.
Speaking of Sharks the second most famous species is the garbage can of the Sea the Tiger. Infamous for being only second to the Great White in attacks on humans it is found everywhere that people like to swim.
Here is a summary of SHARK ATTACKS on one of my favorite sites.
The Norse God for whom THURSDAY is named, really came to life for me under the skillful hand of one of my favorite artists of all time John_Buscema.
Ya gotta love those crazy ass polka dots on his shirt?
and of course number
What red blooded Canadian boy doesn't love Tits?
We love just looking at them, even from a distance,
but we all still spend our entire lives dreaming and scheming of ways to get our hands on them!
And there you have it.
