Last weekend I saw some Dinosaurs...big ones. I sometimes wish I'd followed through with my childhood dream and studied paleontology. There's not real money in that, but then again...there isn't much money in English either. Anyway, dinosaurs have always stoked the fires of my imagination (like they have for countless millions of people).
Why do we love them? Is it because they're "real" monsters? Is it because they come from a fantastic, primordial world (a world very alien to our own)?
