Computer simulations at Manchester University have shown that Tyrannosaurus Rex, once considered to be a slow, lumbering scavenger, could run at speeds of up to 18mph. Wow.
Some geeky, scientist gadgy* commented “This carnivore would have little difficulty in chasing down David Beckham/Frank Lampard (delete as appropriate depending on which newspaper you red).” Double wow; said with ab even more sarcastic tone.
Who gives a crap? Why are we funding such shite? What possible good can such superfluous, unnecessary and time wasting "research" possibly bring?
Unless they will use this data to help boost the performance of the England football team, is that it?
Oh, hang on. McLaren is already using tactics from the dinosaur age- I can see the relevance after all.
