        Is this to imply that dromaeosaurs are "avialians". What's an
"avialian"? Do big ones have sickle claws too? Is this like an avialan?
Aren't those birds? What's my name? Am I missing some important piece of
information here. I am very confused. I don't even know what day it is.
Excuse me, I have to go calculate the jadeite+quartz/anorthite phase boundary...
