Re: new BBC program(me)
I for one learned a lot about ankylosaur tail club power from their "machine."
Got me thinking about other aspects of tail clubs I hadn't thought about in the
20 years I have been working on ankylosaurs. I guess I approached it with a
"half full glass."

I was mad that they spent so much time on their machines. 1- How is a
machine going to show bite pressure or whatever of a living animal,
when the machines are operated by hydraulics? 2 - The only way to see
how 2 cgi models would fight and react to each other would be with
advanced AI. Remember the stupid one with the saltwater croc & the
great white? I guess I'll get started on that AI . .
