Odd yes, because it's in response to the Dinosaurs Walk Like Mammals Thread and the debate in there. It's not my actual reason as to why they are warm-blooded. that's why it's a "joke". Meaning, don't take the statement seriously.  sleepy.gif


I find your "jokes" unclear because I dont know how its a joke or way you posted it for that mater
huh.gif  dontgetit.gif . Its not funny and it says nothing. I dont remember saying anything about your statment being serious...or saying anything about it to start so thats an other unclear statement to me rolleyes.gif .

Read the last line of my post. Joking means don't take my statement seriously. I was being sarcastic, it wasn't meant for comedic purposes. You do know what sarcasm is, correct?

Crocs have everything to do with this because they are one of the dinos closest relatives, and the post cretaceous bipedal croc was an efficient hunter of mammals and looked like a theropod dinosaur despite being cold bloooded.

what do you think and why?
thank you.


Dinosaurs HAD to be warm blooded.  A cold blooded animal spends most of its life trying to maintain its body temperature by seeking shade or sun. A Dinosaur with a body weight of 6 tons + would firstly, have considerable trouble trying to maintain its blood temperature within set limits.The amount of blood within its body would require great amounts of time to attain its correct temperature.
Also, It could not afford to spend half its life in shade or sun - it had to keep feeding which means it had to keep moving regardless of whether it was cold or hot.

I voted warm blooded. I go with the bird ancestory theory.

I don't think all are related to the bird, and all are reptiles

Ok:D Ok grin2.gif  lets play the word game.
Joking really means comedic. So by saying "Im just joking" really means that your saying something but dont take it serious cause Im just trying to be funny. The right (or better) word to use is "kidding" to show that your just saying something with out meaning.
Joking and being sarcastic are 2 different things. (And yes I do know what sarcasm is
huh.gif )
If you want to show sarcasm then you should have put (sarcasm) where you put (joking) to show that thats the reverse of what you really mean (you do know that sarcasm is the opposite of what you really mean and that joking means that your just saying something to be funny and not serious...I guess you do  
rolleyes.gif ). Maybe you need to look sarcasm up because I have seen you try to be sarcastis in a few other topics and it was not carryed out correctly.

IDK what it is about this dinosaur area but yall are coming at me a lil too hard for lil resine mellow.gif

I use the word joking loosely-it can also mean I am being sarcastic. It simply means don't take me seriously or literally.
edit:

joking:Something not to be taken seriously; a triviality
(read it and weep)
