    Everything tastes like chicken, even dinosaurs

  13. BlackCat2 says:

    If you consider alligators a living dinosaur then I have eaten a dinosaur. It tasted like really tough chicken. It took forever to chew and swallow it. I have never had it again nor do I desire to.

  14. Kelly S says:

    Wouldn’t alligator meat be closer to dinosaurs? Alligator (from the local Cajun restaurant) tastes very much like chicken.

  15. son0of0the0beast says:

    People need to stop saying how they hate calling birds dinosaurs. That’s like saying how you hate when people call dogs canines.

  16. Lewis Danson says:

    Are slow and fast twitch muscles developed by an individual, or passed on through genetics?
    For example; would a marathon runner, who uses their leg muscles for long durations, have different types of muscle fibres in their legs than a sprinter, who uses their leg muscles for short bursts of intense power?

  17. Mohammed says:

    I’ve always wondered what humans taste like.

  18. Angelo Ortiz says:

    “Birds are *technically* dinosaurs”
    Yeah and everyone earth is *technically* an ape
