    I'll believe it when I see it.

    Until then his list of projects seems a little attention seeking.

    I posted about this in the JP thread yesterday. This guy seems to be a bit loony, but if anyone was able to accomplish it I'd start saving up for a ticket.

    "Patrons at the vanity park of noted Billionaire Clive Palmer were shocked and offended today when they reached his star exhibit, purported to be a series of living dinosaur specimens. After paying nearly one thousand dollars in admission, they were treated to views of a crocodile, a coelocanth fish, and a single live chicken. Five park officials were sent to hospital in the resulting melee."

    I don't get it.... do these guys have nothing better to do with their money? You know there are real life animals now that are becoming extinct? Instead of investing money in fucking dinosaurs, why not invest money to help EXISTING life? For fucks sake!

    Not to mention, I don't get rich people. They make movies on shit that shows what could happen, and they think, NAH, not to me, let's try it!

    1- Guy who is trying to make an exact replica of the first Titanic. IT SUNK. SUNK you dumb fuck. SUNK.

    2- Now this douche bag.

    I think I have to ignore these news threads, they just get me heated.

    I thought you couldn't clone dinosaurs because the DNA isn't intact (or something like that)... Where's he gonna get the DNA?

    Sorry, but...what? The original sank because it hit an iceberg. Y'know, something that ships AREN'T supposed to do?

    That'd be like if Union Pacific completely scrapped an entire series of locomotives (steam or diesel) because only one rounded a curve too fast and jumped the track.

    Uhhh...

    Unless I'm wrong, although some prehistoric organic materials have been recovered from bloodsucking bugs preserved in amber (although not dinosaur DNA as far as I remember), and even from some fossilised remains, none of it is decently viable enough to actually birth a real dinosaur from.

    Doing it the Jurassic Park way would mean needing to make the big discovery of actual viable dinosaur DNA first. And you can throw as much money as you like at it but it may never actually happen.

    The best he could probably realistically hope for right now would be to mess with the genetics of birds to reactivate long dormant genes and make a bird with dinosaurian features.

    I too am somewhat aroused from reading it. :)

    They're the same person. Apparently one potential disaster isn't enough for him.

    Someone is either very jealous or gets very annoyed by nothing at all. I honestly don't see the problem. They've earned the money themselves and can use it however within the law.

    Nah, that's what the Pennsy RR did, they scrapped the S2 because it did pretty much exactly what you described.

    Although the S2 was also an experimental Duplex design that in practice never made it around any but the most shallow of curves, which should have been obvious to anybody due to its rigid wheelframe.

    Yeah, this. I've been waiting on a cloned mammoth, but I don't know how they're going to manage a dinosaur. Do they know something they haven't announced yet?

    The chicken-to-scaly dinosaur project intrigued me when I first heard about it though, I wonder how that's coming along.
