Uh...no, you waited several days and replied to me. And you keep going. Like you did today. Once again, we can keep this off the thread and you can pm me. I don't have  a problem with that.

erm, so.. I had this really awful spaghetti last nite.. it was the frozen dinner kind my b/f likes to get for when we don't feel like making supper... the sauce was sugary and the noodles were.. erm..

what's the topic again?

oh yeah... dinosaurs.. warm or cold blooded..

Once it was thought that all dinosaurs were cold-blooded - now many suggest that at least some were warm-blooded, which would help to explain why they became so plentiful and dominant for so long. If we examine today's  fauna , we find no large land  predators  that are cold-blooded, except for crocodiles that occupy only one very specific  ecological niche  and are basically water dwellers. The same is true of the entire  Cenozoic  era - virtually all large  predators  were warm-blooded.

Even though it was believed that dinosaurs were closely related to cold-blooded reptiles, most dinosaurs had similar behaviors of a bird which is a warm blooded animal.  Believing dinosaurs were warm blooded would help explain the reason why dinosaurs were so dominant and plentiful for such a long period of time.

Examination of dinosaur fossils seemed to suggest they were indeed warm-blooded. The remains of microscopic holes in the bone seemed to indicate tiny blood vessels had been trapped by the rapid growing bone tissue. Any animal growing that fast must be warm-blooded, scientists reasoned.

After reading up a little bit on this subject, I would have to say that I believe Yelekiah is funny as heck and that dinosaurs were indeed more likely to be warm-blooded.  

Thank you. *takes a bow*  w00t.gif  rolleyes.gif  tongue.gif (choose appropriate smiley)

Thank you, wabbit for those sources. I may add some links on why dinosaurs were warm-blooded as well.

I'm just letting you know no one put words in your mouth. (shrugs) And don't forget you waited days to reply to me, which implies you premeditated it.
Great, it is dropped.

....(My goodness) I dont know how your personal time runs but 1 day aint "days" in my world. I mostly come here once a day which would explain way I replyed so "late" to you. Using Common S you could imply this from the group of post I put at once which would show that I premeditated no thoughts of this over the course of "days" as you so boldly stated. Also what did I premeditated...forget it, like I said I have already let this go.

You felt you were right? About what? about the face he has a strange sense of humour, or about the definition of the word 'Comedy' / 'Sarcasm'.  dontgetit.gif

I'm tending to go with the theory that the larger dinosaurs were warm-blooded and that the smaller dinosaurs were cold-blooded. Like it was said before, it wouldn't make sense if large dinosauurs were cold-blooded, they would have to spend every day-time hour heating in the sun to stay warm, and even that probably wouldn't be sufficient time to keep warm. I suppose a Mod should edit the poll and add in the 'Hybrid' option?

If you look at all of your responses, you respond to those that have replied later than I have. And then respond to my early post. Thus, it is "premeditated" so you could mull over for a day on what to say to me. Hmmm...apparently you haven't.

BTW T-Nemesis, that's an interesting theory. And it would have been convenient for the smaller dinosaur.

... huh.gif  Sorry if you think I need a day to think of something to say (I guess in your mind I have some super power that lets me see what your going to post so that I can think a few days before I post as in the case of how I can post so fast today.). But, Like I said, I mostly come here ONCE....ONCE a day so I wouldnt know what you said till a whole DAY later. Why would this mater>you respond to those that have replied later than I have. And then respond to my early post? If you reply to me with something I will reply back...what does order have to do with these??? huh.gif Your giveing yourself too much cridit...
