When I was about five, I got a kid's book (I can't remember the title;
it was probably just *Dinosaurs*) which was about non-avian dinosaurs.
The thing that got me interested was they were so wonderfully different
from anything else I had ever encountered. To heck with rhinos,
elephants, and lions, when you could have *Triceratops*, *Diplodocus*,
and *Tyrannosaurus*, was my mentality. These guys were bigger and looked
cooler than all the other animals I knew of, and so it was a natural fit
