  The info on the holotype of *Cryolophosaurus* choking on a bone comes
from William Hammer, I beleive, in news bis where he notes that the skull
has a rib in the region of the throat, passing from the rear of the skull
rearward "back into the throat." Thus, inferring it choked on the
prosauropod rib present to have died for our convenience.

  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.
