PASS THE SAUROPOD! PopSci looks at which dinosaur would taste the best!
Sauropods, the largest animals to ever walk the earth, may have made for an interesting meal as well. Their long necks, used to reach high-up food sources, could have resulted in a unique cut of sturdy red meat weighing several tons. Says Varricchio, “Sauropod neck could be a delicacy.”
WHOOPS, I’M BALD! io9 reports on how Professor X will lose his hair in “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”
…[Screenwriter] Simon Kinberg and I had a chat about it and we came up with a whole bunch of ideas about how, why and where he might go bald. It’s got to be linked to the plot though. In the comics, he lost his hair as soon as his powers awakened, and we clearly didn’t follow the source material. It can’t just be that he looks in the mirror at the end of the film and goes ’Oh f&*$, I’m losing my hair.’ Although that could be quite funny with all this s@*t going on… he goes ‘Arge, I’m really stressed…'”
