Are Mad Scientists Hoarding Cryogenically Frozen Dinosaurs For World Domination?

T-Rex-FactsThe rumor that a cabal of Mad Scientists has been traveling back in time to capture, and then cryogenically freeze dinosaurs to unleash on an unwitting population as part of a plan for World Domination, has been picking up steam, Modern Philosophers.

Social Media is abuzz as the world theorizes about where the dinosaurs are being stashed, where the Mad Scientists have set up their evil lair, and which cities will be the targets when the beasts are unleashed.

Wanting to get some answers, I called the one person I knew who could not only out think a Mad Scientist, but who was also an expert on Time Travel.

“Word around the particle accelerator is that while this is a very intriguing plot, the technology doesn’t quite yet exist to make it happen,” my good friend Doc Brown told me as we sipped Snapples on the front porch of The House on the Hill.

I didn’t understand what part of the technology was missing.  We both knew for a fact that Time Travel was real, and everyone knows about cryogenics.

doc hat“What’s missing is how to transport the dinosaurs from millions of years in the past to the cryo lab in the present day or future,” Doc explained as his voice drifted off, a sure sign that he was running calculations in his head.

“I’d definitely move them to the future when the technology for reviving the cryogenically frozen would be advanced enough to make this all work.  However, I just don’t see how you’d get them there.”

Doc got up and began to pace.   “Do you freeze them in the past and then move them to the future?  “Do you transport live dinosaurs into the future, risking all kinds of damage to the time/space continuum, and then freeze them?  Do you stun them in the past, transport them to the present, freeze them, and then zip them to the lab in the future?  None of those idea would work by my calculations, Austin!”

Sweat poured off Doc’s brow when he finally sat down again and chugged the rest of his Snapple.  I quickly got him a new bottle.

“I love the idea,” he admitted as he rubbed the cold bottle on the back of his neck.  “Unleashing dinosaurs on present day Earth would be an excellent way to quickly assert your dominance and control.  I just think more work has to be done on cryogenics vis-a-vis dinosaurs.  I might tinker around with that a bit when I have some free time…”

mad scientistWas Doc saying there really was a cabal of Mad Scientists out there plotting to take over the world?

“Of course there are!” my pal replied with a hearty chuckle.  “As long as there is science, there will be Mad Scientists conducting their crazy experiments, and figuring out ways to use their knowledge for evil and the accumulation of wealth through nefarious means.  It’s the Circle of Science.”

That totally blew my mind, Modern Philosophers.   While I’ve never known Doc Brown to be wrong, I also know that if something is on the Internet, it has to be true.

So, I’m thinking it’s only a matter of time before I see a T Rex stopping for a drink in the Penobscot River at the end of my street.

MCDGODZ EC032What do you think, Modern Philosophers?  Do you believe Mad Scientists are secretly stockpiling dinosaurs to take over the world?  Or do you believe Doc Brown’s claim that the science isn’t quite there yet?  How soon do you think it will be before you see dinosaurs laying waste to your neighborhood?

    what could go wrong? )

    Having recently encountered a uni-cycling, bagpiping Darth Vader, I’d say dinosaurs is the next logical step to the neighborhood’s development.

    I wouldn’t mind a baby dragon 🙂

      Perhaps Doc Brown can make that happen for you. He wants to know if he can take you for a spin in the DeLorean to discuss it over drinks…

    Well… it just doesn’t make sense to me. Whenever I’ve traveled to the past to observe dinosaurs… they normally didn’t stampeded like a herd of buffalo. Sure… sometimes if they are being chased by a T-Rex or a raptor. But, dinosaurs are creatures… they are independent living things. I find it unlikely that a mad scientist would go to the work of transporting creatures they cannot fully control to the present/future in order to take over the world.

    Plus, mad scientists aren’t stupid. The dinosaurs are probably just a distraction, a cover story… the mad scientists are probably actually looking to transport fire breathing dragons in a bid for world domination. Dinosaurs, in my opinion, seems unlikely. But dragons… that makes sense.

  6. I had a calendar of weird but true facts. This was about twenty years ago. One of the facts was that in the 1970’s, military scientists were able to keep a monkey’s head alive for twenty-four hours. My thought is this: if they’re admitting that they can do something like this, what are they hiding? I believe there are dinosaurs already. It’s just a matter of time before they take over. 🙂

  8. Remember Sinclair Oil’s Dino the Din0saur?

  9. I have no doubt. And really, you don’t either, do you? (Love your blog – fun!)

      Thank you!

      If you love my blog, I hope you will stick around and became a regular Modern Philosopher. We’re a fun group.

      Join us…. 🙂

    Old nightmares coming back to reality…… see this is why it is scary to get new ideas out in the world…….. if you can imagine it, somebody some-when might figure out a way to actually do it…. 😀

    That in my opinion would be disastrous! The dinosaurs could eat their “creators”, and then nobody would be able to reverse the process needed to bring them here. Great Scott, think of all the things that could go wrong…
