CP Idea 1....................
John had a view across a vast dry savanna grassland, with a broad river coursing through the center. On either side of the river, animals grazed and browsed. In the south, there was a herd of perhaps eighty creatures that had the body and size of humpless camels, with tapir-like heads, grazing on tall elephant grass with their short trunks.
Nearby, Josh saw eight knuckle-walking creatures with horse-like heads by the river; they drank and lifted their heads, grunting with satisfaction. Directly ahead, they saw a lone Uintatherium browsing on a large scrub bush, with it's canine-like tusks hooking onto twigs and branches, with it's elephantine tail wagging side to side. The long-horned bison herd the group saw earlier, moved slowly past the Uiantatherium, who paid no attention to them. And to the west, a couple of Indricotheres stood by, browsing on a tall single tree on the plain.
It was a tranquil scene......
but it was a scene from a
On the Idea of Resurrecting Extinct Species“On the idea of Resurrecting Species: Smilodon fatalis Introduced to Catalina Island (CA) for the Predation on Bison bison”
When we hear about the idea of resurrecting extinct species, we tend to think of ethic issues and dilemmas that science-fiction books and movies depict. The most popular of these is “Jurassic Park”, the novel by Michael Crichton and the movie by Steven Spielberg. Some of these questions asked include “Should we do it?”, “Are we playing God?”, “Is it the right thing to do?”, “Would anything we bring back cause any environmental issues?” etc. Additionally, we would respond to the idea of cloning extinct species as impossible since most scientists claim that ancient DNA is mostly degraded and would not be viable for biological functions. This was true initially, but in the last few years, remarkable breakthroughs have been achieved in science, making the possibility of resurrecting extinct specie
BA moment idea 1*hero* threw his hostage to the side of a car and grabbed him by the collar.
His hostage looks at *hero* and says "Please...don't kill me!"
*hero* brought his hostage close to his own face and said "Oh, you'll be begging for death when I'm thru with you!"
"Please....I..I just following orders!"
*hero*'s eyes grew wide and he asked "What are you talking about?"
His hostage looks away and says "Nothing, I said too much."
*hero* got his hostage to look at his raging eyes and said "No, you didn't said enough."
*hero* dragged his hostage to the edge of a nearby cliff, got the hostage's legs tied up to a long piece of rope, looks at the hostage, and says "Tell what I need to know or you're gonna have a permanent trip."
The hostage says "No."
Suddenly after that, *hero* pushes the hostage over and the hostage falls down screaming.
After a couple of yards, *hero* grabs the rope (stopping the hostage's falling) and pulls him up.
As this was happening, the hostage says "Okay okay, I'll ta-"
Un roti de Cupidon"Patron.. je suis pas sûr que ça soit une si bonne idée..."
Un bruissement d'ailes presque froufroutant sur sa gauche le fit se retourner d'un bond, mais il ne put percevoir qu'un bref mouvement du coin de l'oeil. Ils étaient rapides, bien trop rapides. Jamais le vieux ne réussirait. De nouveau ce bruit soyeux, semblable à des ailes de tourterelles, mais bien plus proche. Dans son esprit il pouvait les voir, tournant au dessus de sa tête comme autant de vautours prêts à la curée.
Le bruit assourdi des détonations résonna et tout autour d'Emmanuel une pluie de plumes commença à virevolter tandis que cinq bruits sourds accompagnaient la chute d'autant de corps autour de lui.
"Ramasse les, petit. On a encore du boulot."
Avec une grimace mi admirative, mi dégoûtée, le jeune homme se mit au travail, enfilant des lourds gants de cuir pour se protéger. Son sup
