So do you remember that time in class when you were learning about dinosaurs and one of them was the brontosaurus? It was one of the largest animals to have ever walked on land. Along with the tyrannosaurus rex, triceratops and pterodactyl, our childish imaginations ran wild. But it was all lies! Dirty no good lies! Well, at least one of them was. You see, the brontosaurus didn’t exist. Not ever. Not even for a brief second in actual physical living and breathing form. So why exactly didn’t the brontosaurus exist?
I suppose the best way to explain the confusion over this non-existent dinosaur is by comparing it with a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle, which everyone knows are just not fun. Well, picture this. You have been given a bundle of pieces to put together into a picture, but someone lost the box with the pretty picture of what it’s supposed to look like. Determined to waste as much time as possible because there is a power failure, your phone is flat, and all of your friends are only on Facebook, you decide to persevere and see if you can complete the mammoth task. You near the end to discover a few missing pieces. What do you do? Failing to complete the mission would just mean that you wasted many precious hours. So you look for the missing pieces, and if you don’t find them, well, to hell with it. Any piece that you find will do. Oh, yeah. That is kind of what happened here.
