    Two headed 'dragon' discovered

    Two headed 'dragon' discovered

    Scientists in China say they have uncovered the 145 million year old fossil of a two headed 'dragon'.
    The creature was not a fire-breathing monster but a deformed baby lizard, reports the Daily Mail.
    Researchers say it had two distinct heads and necks and is believed to be the earliest example of a creature developing in such a way.


    Scientists think it belonged to an ancient family of now-extinct reptiles that grew up to three feet long.
    However the fossil is less than three inches long because it probably died shortly before or just after it was born.
    The fossil comes from the choristodera family of reptiles which evolved crocodile-like characteristics.


    Such mutations occur among reptiles when the layer of cells from which an embryo develops splits incorrectly but this is the oldest one ever discovered.
    Lead researcher Dr Eric Buffetaut from the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in Paris, said: "This two headed reptile seems to be unique in the fossil record."

    Star Wars Anniversary Celebrations in the US

    US mailboxes go R2-D2 for Star Wars anniversary

    Los Angeles, United States

    16 March 2007 04:39

    Hundreds of R2-D2s will be popping up on street corners all over the United States in the coming months as part of celebrations to mark the 30th anniversary of Star Wars.

    The US Postal Service said on Thursday that about 400 mailboxes across the country will be revamped with special packaging to make them look like the famous chirruping robot from the science-fiction film and its five sequels.

    A special stamp commemorating Star Wars, which was released on May 25 1977, is to be issued on March 28 when a "surprise announcement" is also to be made, officials said.

    Customers will be able to use the R2-D2 boxes just like any of the 280 000 postal service mailboxes around the country.

    One of the mailboxes will be situated outside the famous Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood -- one of the first cinemas to screen Star Wars 30 years ago. -- AFP

    How To Train Your Dragon



    How To Train Your Dragon is a must see. To me, this film has one of the best portrayals of Viking culture and beliefs I've ever seen in a Hollywood produced film. The characters are often stubborn and hardheaded, with pale skin, braided blonde/brown hair, and, to my eyes, fairly authentic garb. The Vikings are portrayed as great and powerful instead of as savages. Some Jews and an Hispanic girl do a few of the voices, but we also get Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, and David Tennant. There's not a single non-White character on the screen the entire movie. With so many Jews involved I expected it to have raunchy, inappropriate toilet humor pop up every so often but there was none whatsoever, it's safe for all ages. There's a bold moment at the end which I was surprised to see in a childrens film and it makes for a touching connection between two characters. Additional high points are the subtle but effective use of 3D, the beautiful aurora borealis scene, frequent mentions of Odin and Thor, and a score that soars just as much as the spectacular flying sequences. I'm shocked critics are praising this movie, it holds a 97% on RottenTomatoes, http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/1194...n_your_dragon/. Best film of the year so far.

    Yea, and I almost mentioned that, but since it didn't detract from my enjoyment of the picture I didn't mention it. Plus it could have been worse, at least it wasn't wings lol.

    Here's an example of the awesome score:
