Year 2013 is almost over and we still don't have domesticated, cloned dinosaurs.

Humanity is SUCH a disappointment.

The half-life of DNA is too short, so dinosaurs can't be cloned, but I believe a Mammoth can.

Sorry for ruining your joke.

Not to be Buzz Killington, here, but a discovery was made earlier in the year that, due to the extreme amount of time since the death of dinosaurs and the half-lives of the different elements in their DNA, it'd be physically impossible to ever clone one.
We can still do wooly mammoths and **** , though.

We can mutate chickens and emus to have dino-like characteristics, such as clawed hands, toothed beaks, and long tails.

Perhaps with our current technology, but wait a little bit and it might be possible a little bit being somewhere around 50 to 200 years.

He's saying that the any possibility of DNA recovery from that time is impossible, because all DNA from that time, no matter how well-preserved a specimen you find, has completely disintegrated

Reptiles cannot be domesticated, only trained

Dinosaurs aren't reptiles, god damnit. They're BIRDS. And, birds are pretty smart. I bet you could tame one, except you'd have to be real careful, methinks, given that it's a 6 foot turkey with killer jaws.

Dude. We have a trilogy of successful movies that explain why this would never work.

remember what happened in Jurassic park?

I think all the kerfuffle in dino-island would have been avoided with more Jeff Goldblum

Except that something not many people think about is that after only a couple generations of dinosaurs, they would be small enough to be much easier domesticated because of there not being as much oxygen, or we could only clone the smaller dinosaurs. After that it's just a matter of managing to domesticate them like we did wolves. Imagine how much better of a hunting companion a dinosaur would be as long as you trained them not to just eat the animal when they kill it.

Read the first book, 3 or 4 chapters in they discuss this.

Because you were a telespectator, not one of the persons being chased down by goddamn T-Rex
