Back to JURASSIC PARK once again...

_T. rex_ (pronounced tee WRECKS, as two separate words, which indeed they
are) has indeed been around a long, long time. JP, unfortunately,
introduced us to T-Rex (pronounced, after John Hammond in the film,
TEE-wrecks, as one word, with a hyphen and a capital R), one more annoying
thing to blame the movie for.
