For those of you that didn't know (I have a very informative calendar), April is Velociraptor Awareness month and April 18th is Velociraptor Awareness day. Be safe out there.

I'll keep an eye out, but they always seem to come tearing through the jungle and rip your head off on the way by.

A good day to stay in the basement.

Velociraptor Awareness Day is great and all, I always have a good year. Last year I got a goat!

What I hate is cleaning up after Velociraptor Awareness Day. All the limbs to gather, hunt down the stragglers that got away in the round-up. There's a lot more things I have to do today. These holidays close together crap is pretty hectic.

Just remember, a velociraptor is a long term commitment, not a holiday impulse gift. Most responsible breeders won't sell to you in April. If you're sincere about making one a part of your family, consider Velociraptor rescue groups.

Apparently so did one of my coworkers. She had a minor flashback after my raptor ringtone went off.

I'm putting these up at work. Taping them right over the Sharp posters.

Alrighty then.

I got Cinco De Mayo for Margaritas.

I got St. Patrick's day for drinking everything.

I got National Custodian Appreciation Day on Oct. 2 when we drink cleaning products.

What the hell do I serve on Velociraptor Awareness Day?

Sounds like something my wife would say. "You're not supposed to be drinking. You're supposed to be mowing the lawn/wrestling a bear/dealing the clutter in the basement/yadda yadda blah blah blah".

She is so smart SHE can handle the damn Velociraptors. I will be just ducky with my awesome blender drinks.

Hold on.

Would a velociraptor attack a menopausal woman? Or would that not happen out of professional courtesy? Or would she just join them?

Clever girl...

Well, we have it on good authority that the blood attracts bears. Nobody ever confirmed if the bear would be dumb enough to attack.

Its a normal episode, and they just re-animated it with archer as a velociraptor. His dialog is nothing but snarling.

Velociraptor was a mid-sized dromaeosaurid, with adults measuring up to 2.07 m (6.8 ft) long, 0.5 m (1.6 ft) high at the hip, and weighing up to 15 kg (33 lb).

Although I have read this explanation about why they went the way they did in the movie.

At the time the Velociraptors in JP were originally created, they were in fact "accurate". When Michael Crichton first wrote Jurassic Park in the mid-late 80's, he based many of his dinosaurs on depictions and classifications by the unorthodox paleo-artist Gregory S. Paul, who had classified the recently discovered Deinonychus antirrhopus as well as other species such as Dromeaosaurus and the then yet to be described Achillobator giganticus all under the genus of "Velociraptor". Crichton used these classifications when he wrote Jurassic Park. It is due to constant scientific updating, that these creatures became scientifically obsolete very soon. These classifications and designs were then carried over to the film version, which Spielberg had already planned on making, before the book was even published. The designs were copied as so to be accurate to the novel, not science.

It's not the size (or really lack there of) of the Utahraptor. The largest fossil would have an adult at about 8ft tall but what made Utahraptor bad news was it's incredible speed and agility along with it being the smartest of carnivore dinosaurs. Scientist believe raptors (all of them,) had sophisticated communication and hunted in packs much like wolves today. Of course the razor-sharp dew claw, jaw of teeth and claws made for the equivalent of a ninja dinosaur.

Velociraptors as a breed are not evil baby eaters, they just get a bad name from some of the d-bags that own them. I've had indoor Velociraptors my entire life and none of mine have ever so much as snarled at a youngin'.

I heard Jackson is going to be in Jurassic Park 4, and he's going to sue Grant, Ellie and Hammond for leaving him behind when they saw a black arm and just assumed it was his arm.

Considering they're more closely related to birds than reptiles, apply the intelligence of crows or ravens to a raptor and see what you come up with.
