  • Scientists tell us that there were some dinosaurs so huge that they required a second, rudimentary brain in their haunches to relay messages to their main-frame brain. Thus, it is possible that an apatosaurus could receive a fatal bite in the flank, and the animal wouldn't realize it was dead until a minute or so later.

    The old way of doing things -- of being, playing and loving -- has received such a wound but it hasn't registered yet on the complacent brain of of the lumbering colossus that houses it. Kindly leave space for it to fall.
