The Albertosaurus is a tyrannosaurid from the late cretaceous period (the period just before the mass extinction of the dinosaurs). The Albertosaurus looks similar to a Tyrannosaurus Rex, though much smaller. It’s name is literally from the province in which it was discovered. A co-worker of mine happens to own a fossilized Albertosaurus tooth, as you see me holding below. That tooth (now rock) is over 65 million years old!
My older brother recently celebrated his 30th birthday! Unfortunately, he now lives on the west coast of the United States and therefore cannot spend his birthdays with his family and friends (from home). Bryan’s best friend Chris decided to make this awesome video because we all couldn’t be with him down there. There’s lots of references to their childhood as they grow up, the places they hung out, the stuff they went through together, and some cameos from friends/family.
I recently took a trip to San Diego to attend Comic-Con International: San Diego. I was volunteering at a booth there (the Art of Laurie B!). After Comic-Con was over, I hung out in the city for one more day. Naturally I wanted to check out the Science Centre. Among many other great things it had, I found this great demonstration of pendulums of different lengths. Check out the video I shot below
