i am evil in your children but if i can help it i am normal to you until its too late. ,
i know how you live, and guess what? you are neuro typical as well. we both are evil. ,
i know no morals, no ethics, no good, no rules. i discriminate against non neuro typicals and with every one non neuro typical i discriminate i feel better. ,
i discriminate very quickly. i discriminate faster that neo nazis and white supremasists combined, .
and if you are not neuro typical i will make sure that your species falls. your lives will fall into my hands and i will commit genocide against non neuro typicals, .
i dont stop and i make sure you die. i will make it virtually impossible for non neuro typicals to live , and will wipe out all non neuro typicals, .
I have a cure for you. Our scientists have the resources and soon you will be cured. ,
your neighbours are happy to make sure you dont exist and ofcourse help me in my campaign against non neuro typicals.,

Feathered ornithomimosaurs! At last!A new Jehol find? Nope! It's Ornithomimus itself! Two new specimens (an adult and a juvenile) have been found with feather traces, and a long-known adult specimen has been discovered to have what may be attachment points for large feathers on the arms. This means that pennibrachiae go down to the base of maniraptoriforms! The juvenile, however, doesn't preserve pennibrachiae, so it might mean that in these basal maniraptoriforms only the adults had pennibrachiae, and that pennibrachiae originally evolved for display. In addition, this also opens up the possibility of finding feathered dinosaur specimens in coarser-grained sediment than usually expected, as long as fossil hunters keep a sharp eye out for those delicate feather traces.Feathered ornithomimosaurs!

Dinosaur News #34New dinosaurs include new species of Mochlodon M. vorosi. There are also reportedly three other new iguanodontians, Huxleysaurus hollingtoniensis (formerly a species of Iguanodon), Darwinsaurus evolutionis, and new species of Mantellisaurus M. carpenteri, but no one seems to have the paper (at least not in digital form).Dinosaur News #34 in Personal More Like This
A neonatal Talenkauen santacrucensis specimen, a new specimen of Mei long (miraculously also in a sleeping position), and the soaring cycle of Diomedea exulans are described. Evidence of South American stegosaurs is confirmed. Aphelocoma californica are found to react to their dead and Corvus moneduloides are found to use casual reasoning. Potential cellular and molecular mechanisms for the development of early feather types are suggested. The evolution of quadrupedality in different ornithischian groups is investigated. The backwards flight of trochilids is found to be quite efficient.

Otto!It's official. "Otto", the exquisite juvenile theropod specimen that tantalizingly surfaced last year has been published under the name Sciurumimus albersdoerferi. (Anyone else glad they didn't jump on one of its rumored names floating around earlier in the year, "Xaveropterus"? Always wait for the paper. )Otto! in Personal More Like This
The big news about this one, aside from being a wonderfully preserved juvenile specimen, is that it is (maybe) a megalosauroid that preserves feathers! Sadly, as glad as I am to see this finally out, it did not push me to "yes-yes-yes" territory considering that the beans were all spilled last year when it was initially revealed.
Edit: According to Dr. Oliver Rauhut, the lead author on the descriptio

This video supposedly features six species of monkeys. One of my Facebook friends shared it and pointed out that only three of the animals in there were actual monkeys. I expected that to mean the other slots were taken up by the likes of chimpanzees and gorillas, which wouldn't have been too bad, but...
Fortunately, the Taxonomy Fail Index gives us an entertaining way to deal with this sort of thing.
