Chris Pratt just finished starring in the first bona fide blockbuster of the summer, Jurassic World, and you know what that means: comedic actor, ab-haver, and Everwood star Chris Pratt is now a certified expert in dinosaur things. So is Jack Horner, the paleontologist who has had the incredibly awesome job of serving as a technical adviser on every installment of the Jurassic Park series since the first. Leave it to Michael Stevens of V-Sauce, YouTube’s go to guy for straight-up info just about everything, to bring these two together in one video to talk shop. Here’s 3 crazy things we learned about Jurassic World.
Contrary to popular belief, the power of fossil fuels is not derived from the disembodied spirits of dinosaurs. In fact, dinosaurs aren’t really the source of oil and gas at all. Oil is produced over millions of years by microorganisms but that’s not as cool as dinosaur ghosts so I say we just forget it.
Dinosaurs never went extinct. While an asteroid wiped about just about every living thing that could be classified as a dinosaur millions of years ago, at least one branch of that family survived. Today we call them birds, which is lame. Chris Pratt agrees with me on this.
YouTube’s closed captioning thinks that Chris Pratt’s name is Chris Crack. This is a great name and someone should start using it immediately.
