|A Dinosaur in My Ring??
Remember Jurassic Park?
No. It's not some theme park In Tennessee; I'm talking about Jurassic Park the movie. These scientists took DNA from the blood
found in a mosquito preserved in amber
and used it to make a real live dionsaur.
Although the concept was far-fetched, the
information was somewhat consistent with reality.
Amber, yes the amber used in jewelry, is hardened fossilized
sap or resin from ancient pine trees.
The resin dates back to prehistoric times.
If you are willing to pay the price,
you can buy amber with prehistoric
inclusions, bugs, twigs...etc. thus making
plausible the whole Dinosaur from the
blood of a mosquito thing. (That is if you
believe an ancient mosquito had the ability
to pierce the hide of a dinosaur.)
SO ARE YOU SAYING THERE'S
NO DINOSAUR IN MY RING???
Well, actually, scientists in real life believe the
amber we use in jewelry came from a time
when there were no dinosaurs. So................. even though there was a Jurassic Park II,
the whole Dinosaur-in-the-amber-fantasy
thing was big stretch of the imagination.....but
I won't tell anyone if you won't.
