The Jurassic World Movie and Challenge
I saw "Jurassic World" (Vincent's "Jurassic World review: not your father's de-extinction theme park" sums up my opinion of the movie: http://chasmosaurs.blogspot.com/2015/06/marcs-jurassic-world-review-not-your.html ) & took the "Jurassic World Challenge" ( http://chasmosaurs.blogspot.com/2015/06/the-jurassic-world-challenge.html ). At 1st I was like, "There are many paleo researchers & independent paleoartists. How [am I] to decide which ones to give $ to?", but then Orr was like, "if you have trouble choosing, I'd choose a place that is close to you, or simply choose to buy a piece of artwork from a favorite artist", so I did: 1st, I bought Willoughby's "Tea Raptor Mug" for $22.94 (See "Merchandise" under "Store": http://emilywilloughby.com ), mostly b/c I think it'll go nicely w/my "Dakin Jurassic Park Mug" ( https://www.storeslider.com/dakin-jurassic-park-mug-1992-official-dinosaur-universal-351400160310e.html ); Then, I donated $22.94 to BMNHC's "Dinosaur Endowment" (See "Support a Division" under "Give": http://www.burkemuseum.org ), mostly b/c I wanna commit to eventually moving to Seattle.
In short, I recommend that everyone sees the movie & takes the challenge (especially if you like dinos or science or have ever seen "Jurassic Park").
P.S. Just in case you were wondering, my ticket price was $12.75.
