This is really fucking cool. It's really weird to realize that dinosaurs are still being discovered and studied so when you go back and read about things they're completely different from what you learned in elementary school. Anyway, it looks like the Spinosaurus doesn't look like a bigger T-rex anymore (like in Jurassic Park), but instead like a giant newt. Also the T-rex most likely looks like a big fluffy bird.

Holy shit this is cool. It didn't even cross mind that something like this would be possible... I mean I thought you would need a clean room and some really expensive equipment. I might try this someday.

How cool is this? It's kind of a dumb joke, but the fact that it's possible to have the tracking so accurate you can write on a whiteboard in VR is amazing. We're not much farther away from having a VR classroom, which would be really stupid yet surprisingly useful.

https://www.usatoday.com/in-depth/news/investigations/2020/03/19/dental-chain-private-equity-drills-healthy-teeth-profit/4536783002/

Fuck dentists, man. I've had continuous trouble trying to get them to not try and scam me with all these orthodontic inserts and teeth drilling. The whole industry is a scam. What people have to do nowadays is find a small practice and then stick with them forever.
