Re: Sue femur length help

<I was doing some cross scaling between the Sue and Stan T. rex skeletons,

which would be shorter than Stan's femur length of around 132 cm.  The
same goes for the tibias, although Sue's non-leg dimensions all come out
larger than Stan's.>

  Brochu's memoir lists the length of the right femur at 132.1cm, and the
left at 130.8cm, on page 138.

  Little steps are often the hardest to take.  We are too used to making leaps 
in the face of adversity, that a simple skip is so hard to do.  We should all 
learn to walk soft, walk small, see the world around us rather than zoom by it.
