Ok, we can move on now.
So there is in fact few things more fun than watching Jurassic Park with someone who has never seen it and happens to be a science major currently taking classes about...you know, dinosaur stuff. This was the case tonight when I sat down with Jasmine and Alexa, two science-y majors doing just that. Jasmine's seen it and all that but poor Alexa had no idea what she was in for. Me, being the Literature major and casual dino enthusiast, pretty much just accepted all the bullshit science in favor of watching velociraptors tear some shit apart, which lead to stuff like:
(The little DNA dude from the animated portion explains how they extracted dino-blood from mosquitoes trapped in amber, added in some frog DNA and presto! Dinosaurs!)
Me: Whatever you say, DNA version of Clippy.
Jasmine: You might wanna ignore this part...
Alexa: (too late) WHAT? No. NO. NO! That is not right!
Jasmine: Paying attention only makes it hurt more!
Alexa: This is wrong!! This is so much wrong!
And then they'd show the dinosaurs and Jasmine and Alexa would take turns pointing out how wrong and/or stupid the movie was. And the fact that real velociraptors looked less like this:
And more like this:
Heehee, I wanna pet it and AGHHSWEETJESUS!! It's eating my face in a manner both hilarious and terribly painful!
So yeah. But really, you don't watch Jurassic Park for minute accuracy, or even much-larger-than-minute accuracy. You watch it to see the fat guy from Seinfeld get sprayed in the face with dinosaur poison. And the for dinosaurs. That too.
Never. Gets. Old.
