AAAARRRRGGGGGGHHH. I want to know what principle of physics it is that

DINOSAUR DOCUMENTARY A REAL-LIFE DETECTIVE STORY
from The San Francisco Chronicle
Los Angeles -- What is it about dinosaurs, anyway? Since "Jurassic
Park" in 1993, people just can't seem to get enough of them.
Smith, who stars in A&E's new documentary "The Lost Dinosaurs of Egypt,"
offers a hypothesis.
"I think largely the attraction is they're really big, but they're dead so
they can't hurt us. You can go, 'Look at the big teeth on that
thing; isn't that cool! But it can't kill me because it's dead.' We can
them, but at a safe distance."
