I saw a documentary on the science channel the other day, where some scientists are working on a way to bring back dinosaurs for research purposes. apparently they got the inspiration from "jurassic park", so now there's research on turning that fantasy into a reality. let's just pretend for a moment, that the technology exists to even bring back prehistoric life, do you honestly think we should? if you think so, then please explain what would be the benefits of it. if not, then please say why it's not a good idea.
Bringing 'em back is a learning process!
We need to understand every facet of genetic engineering.
I'm not saying to fill the zoo with dinosaurs, I'm just saying perfect the genetic process of doing so.
Who can predict what future use of "knowing" might produce?
Oh yes! Bring 'em back!
Well qwark, you have fun with that. As you can see...Steve, Paradise, and myself are evacuating the universe. You're welcome to join us, if you'd like. Remember, "life finds a way." You'll remember us when the dinos are running rampant, and you realize that there are reasons for things to be extinct.
I'm licking my chops thinking about barbecueing those giant drumsticks on Tyrannosaurus Rex!!! mmmmm good!!!...:-)
LMFAO!!! I never thought of that! Solve world hunger, eh, qwark?
I'd want my generosity to be rewarded tho...bringing down one-a-those suckers is really gonna test my "gonads!" eh? ..get my drift? It's gonna take "balls!" oh yeh!
All right. All right, you win. I'll have admit the idea of watching you wrangle a T-Rex is rather sexy. I might stick around a minute and watch. I'll make you a deal--you bring down the dino, and I'll tend your wounds and even make your first dinner. I'm an excellent cook, and an even better *cough* "nurse."
Hey Glass..yer on!
..but wait, I kill it you clean it ok?
You do that and I'll make ya a hi style dinosaur jacket outa the skin of that dinosaur leg that'll make you the talka-the-town!...deal?
When you get on the space craft outa here, spread it around that I designed and built that gorgeous jacket for ya eh?
I'll be here when the "et's" arrive to do some business with me..ok with you? Be nice and I may even give you a cut! I'm that kinda guy! lotsa heart where the "bucks" are concerned.
oh yeh! :-)
hehehe...Hey, I ain't afraid to get down n dirty. You bring that Dino home...I'll dissect it. We'll see where it goes from there.
Damn! ya got me all excited...I'm not one who prematurely ejaculates...breath deeply and slowly in and out...drop yer head 'tween yer legs Qwark...you'll be ok!!!
Whew! ok, ok, I'm aight!
Now we just have to wait for them damned dinosaurs.
I'll let ya know when Glass....breath deep and slow qwark...deep and slowwww.
maybe you should become the first restaurant owner to serve dead dinos, when dinosaurs do become part of our world again. lol.
Yep it could be as enjoyable as the birthday party of an 85 year old drunk!
So you're saying they WATCHED Jurassic Park...and decided it was a GOOD idea?? *slaps forehead*
How about "Just because we CAN do it, does that mean we SHOULD do it?" I guess they just fast-forwarded through that and all the nasty parts, eh?
lol. looks that way. although i am curious to see if they're actually going to pull it off. although i'm with you, i think it's a terrible idea. because for one, we have no idea how these dinosaurs were even like back in those times. i mean seriously. why does everyone assume a brontosaurus was friendly? just because it's a plant eater? african elephants and rhinos are plant eaters too, but i wouldn't call them friendly. if you piss any of them off, they're likely to kill you. who's not to say even the plant eating dinos might not be the same way.
I don't see why it would be a bad idea, given the species of course. I don't think any small herbivores would cause much of a problem. If you get into cloning a T-Rex on the other hand....
The knowledge that would arise from studying a live animal would immediately supercede any risks. Imagine what we'd learn about species development and evolution... not to mention that it would also be wicked cool.
*sigh* Sometimes I wish there was another planet I could escape to. We're determined to destroy this one.
I'm with you there. The other planets are mostly too hot or too cold and basically unfriendly to life at all, unfortunately.
I'd like to escape to another universe altogether! Come with me, bring the Scotch!
Yes! *packs the Scotch, some extra underwear, and her handy death ray...Rips a hole in the universe, stands on the edge of it holding out her hand to Paradise while the wind whips her hair around her face...* COME ON, WE CAN MAKE IT!!!
hey, can i come with you ladies? i don't want to be left here to die. lol.
*nods to Steven* Yeah, but the hole won't last long...You're going to have to bring more Scotch! Hurry up!
lol. you got it. (grabs my briefcase full of extra clothes. while packing a gym bag full of a few extra bottles of scotch as i rush over to join gs and paradise)
I had to switch to Scotch. I broke my wine! Hey, any port in a storm. The more the merrier, Steve, This other universe, though...you don't need clothes. It's kind of a universe law...
They'll get ripped off when we go through the hole...Haven't you done this before?? We'll acquire what we need when we get there.
i think i'm going to like this new universe then.
Bad boys are a lot more fun. You a bad boy?
Yeah, haven't you ever gone through the black hole to the alternate universe on the other side? I thought everybody made the trip at least once. I guess a lotta peeps decided not to come back...the nude thing, maybe, or maybe the extraterrestrial music, very heavenly and hot at the same time.
You know, Paradise...I think one of the biggest problems with this part of the universe is that most people HAVEN'T made the jump to the other side.
i don't know. i'll let you be the judge of that. however, if this new universe has everything you say it does, then i'm going to love it there.
ARe we hijacking this thread? Or is it my imagination...
Imagination... Stones tune, remember? Just my imagination...
Not if Steven's hijacking it with us...It's HIS thread.
lol. yeah, but i ain't complaining as it's kind of fun to be quite honest. lol.
Ready???? Take off your clothes, grab your scotch, and put on the oldest Rolling Stones tunes you have, then....
Hah! Wowza. The ultimate deluxe megascooper for your pet dinosaur.
*tugs Paradise's hand* Mommy Mommy, look *points to the dinosaur on the lawn* Can I keep him! I promise I'll clean up after him!
ETA: Or is it "Daddy Daddy?" Sorry, I don't know? No offense.
Are you sure they were watching Jurassic Park? Didn't those dinosaurs get out of hand and kill everyone? Yeah, that was the first thing I thought when I watched that movie too. Let's make dinosaurs so they can rip us apart! Brilliant *rolls eyes*
I missed you, wish I could fan you twice.
I think bringing back dinosaurs would be a Big Mistake, Huge!
Yeah, that's what most of us thought too, so we made a hole to escape the universe. It's right over there *points* You don't have to stay here with this madness.
Missed you too, Faybe. I'll be writing more hubs soon.
Okay, Glass, I'm with you. SAVE ME FROM THIS MADNESS!
*Hands Pani a bottle of scotch and a death ray* That's all you'll need...Just jump through, and everything will be fine. You'll lose your clothes on the way through though, but you won't need em. Good luck.
I'll join you just after qwark takes down that T-Rex.
I know, we'd bring back something a lot bigger than us, and even more dangerous, just so we have a chance to use all of those useless nuclear weapons stockpiled someplace...
Whoa! Hold on! What a freakin' negative thought! The Positive Thinking Police will shoot me on sight!

Do you think its a good idea or bad idea to write about politics on HubPages?Politics, like religion, stirs up emotions in some people bringing out their, shall we say, darker qualities. Knowing this is it a good idea to rouse them with political hubs?

HubPages plans on posting updates more regularly and wants to focus on a wider range of topics. They want to bring back some old installments like “Hubber to Hubber.” I don't remember "Hubber to Hubber." Does anyone know what that was? They are also looking for suggestions, and we can...
