I think I read somewhere that the Utahraptor was either named or discovered around the same time the first Jurassic Park came out, and that the Velociraptors in that movie were actually more similar to Utahraptors instead of real life Velociraptors.

I missed Polygamy and Mitt Romney. Kind of hard to remember people who didn't become president.

FR I thought it was known for polygamy, so was guessing every sin, figured it was gonna be some weird thing. I guess should have realizes "practice" and be something known for.
