     WAIT!  If they turned around fast enough, like helicopter blades, 
they might become airbourne!!  BADD and BCF are BOTH crocks!
     Seriously, objections to rearing sauropods focusing on the 
problems of getting blood to the brain ignore sauropods like 
Brachiosaurus and Omeiosaurus, who had very long necks but were 
habitually carrying them upright, so obviously there are ways of 
circumventing this problem.
