New "Big Boy" Found

Fark linked up news that yet another giant sauropod has been found in South America:

Most impressive is a back vertebra that measures 3.48 feet (1.06 meters) tall and 5.51 feet (1.68 meters) wide, according to Fernando Novas. The paleontologist announced the find at the Argentine Museum of Natural Sciences in Buenos Aires on July 21.

One of Olivia's first words was "dinosaur" (told you we were nerds!), so I'm sure she'd be fascinated by this thing. Now that she's a bit older, I think we'll probably take her down to the Natural History museum on the mall. Well, not now... it's like an Amazon jungle exhibit in downtown DC this time of year, and you can't swing a cat without hitting a tourist. Maybe November

Just imagine the cut of steak from that. A 200lb porterhouse, medium rare. Some bread, wine, and cheese and I'd be a damned happy camper.
