I prefer extinct animals after about 65 million years ago.

why do you is guys always dance around this why don't we use this technology to bring back dinosaurs

is that even ******* english? jeeze brother

sorry i don't know why but my laptop will randomly move the cursor to the middle of a sentence or something, or the screen will just scroll down on a space randomly and i don't know how to fix that

Do you use your touch pad for a mouse?
User avatar #255 to #254 - zpryed ONLINE (09/26/2013) [-]
na i got a mouse to the side of me and keep my hands away from the pad as a habit from playing games
#256 to #255 - Spikeydeath (09/26/2013) [-]
disable the ******* touch pad, thats probably your issue
User avatar #258 to #256 - zpryed ONLINE (09/26/2013) [-]
i would but im not the only one that uses the laptop and i don't give my family the mouse since its wireless and they already lost like 2 or 3 others

User avatar #236 - inanimateobject (09/26/2013) [-]
But... isn't this a bad idea? The habitats of the extinct species would have changed by now... right?
User avatar #275 to #236 - tankerdude (09/27/2013) [-]
but what is going to stop the scientists from changing the dinos so they can survive in the new environment
User avatar #261 to #236 - newforomador ONLINE (09/26/2013) [-]
Or possibly like spikeydeath just said, if we could contain larger animals like that we could use them for food, if they weren't poisonous at least.
#263 to #261 - Spikeydeath (09/26/2013) [-]
Im actually for cloning humans to use for experiments, I mean we have never seen what happens to people in the vacuum of space, why not clone people and test it
User avatar #266 to #263 - newforomador ONLINE (09/26/2013) [-]
Personally, I'm fine with it as well. But there are many people believe that it is cruel because a cloned person would be still be considered a person, that can feel pain, has feelings etc. So many people wouldn't want it to happen, and if enough people don't want it to happen it usually won't unless it's completely necessary (or the government deems it necessary)
#276 to #266 - Spikeydeath (09/27/2013) [-]
Grow em in farms, by themselves, no emotions
User avatar #257 to #236 - newforomador ONLINE (09/26/2013) [-]
It would really be more for research purposes than anything. Just one (maybe two to see how mating is done, or however many until a male and female is made) would be created, studied, then either killed for more study, or left to live it's life in a controlled environment until it dies. The most likely dinosaurs that would be resurrected are a flying dinosaur (Quetzalcoatlus), one of the mega-huge ones (brachiosaur), a big water one (pleasiosaur), a big carnivorous one (do I even need an example) and possibly one of the armored or finned dinosaurs.

The half life of DNA is only 521 years. Meaning it's impossible to revive any organism from a few thousand years ago, let alone hundreds of millions of years ago.
#249 to #217 - Spikeydeath (09/26/2013) [-]
the half life without some factors...heat...preservation...etc
#246 to #217 - theangryme (09/26/2013) [-]
For what I know, you need a complete DNA strand. That's why someone was trying to clone a mammoth... right?
User avatar #250 to #246 - ctrlwftw (09/26/2013) [-]
The half life means that half of the DNA will have degraded in 512 years time. However if the specimen is frozen the DNA will stay intact for up to a few thousand years. It is theoretically possible to construct a full genome from multiple incomplete specimens (patching up the degraded pieces with intact pieces). Scientists have the full DNA from a mammoth specimen but thats only half the battle. You need mitochondria which can be borrowed from another extant species but I think that's whats preventing them from being able to do it.
User avatar #259 to #250 - theangryme (09/26/2013) [-]
Oh, I think I missed the "half life" part.

And well, mitochondrian DNA is a problem, but not a big one. I guess the trouble radicate in trying to reconstruct the genome from such damaged DNA. But, you know, with Mycoplasma laboratorium there's always hope in bigger things.

Well, it says recently, I dunno 'bout you, but 500 years ago isn't too recent.

It's like 5 seconds in geologic time.
User avatar #239 to #237 - ctrlwftw (09/26/2013) [-]
I am aware of that, I am simply stating why we will never revive a dinosaur.
User avatar #240 to #239 - Blargosnarf ONLINE (09/26/2013) [-]
I feel in the back of my mind there is a way to trace the DNA sequences, but I can't quite think of how. The only thing that comes to mind is the DNA leaving behind some sort of imprint, and someone then able to just copy it down with a notebook or something.
User avatar #242 to #240 - ctrlwftw (09/26/2013) [-]
The closest shot we have is reverse engineering a chicken since it's the closest relative to dinosaurs. But that won't happen for a long time.
User avatar #215 - missrainbowdash (09/26/2013) [-]
dinosaurs would find it very hard to exist on the world today, back when they roamed the oxygen rate in the air was like 70%, today it's like 30%
#213 - anonymous (09/26/2013) [-]
Actually this species of frog that was cloned in this article is not the first animal to become un-extinct, a few years before this scientists brought back the Pyrenean ibex, a type of wild goat native to Europe, however the clone died seven minutes after birth due to lung defects so this isn't the first species to be un-extinct, just the first one to be permanently brought back.

Grow one dinosaur.
Neuter it.

Also, now we don't have to hear those ******** stories about how the polar bears are going extinct(even though they're just evolving out of existance) because we can simply say, we can just make some new ones.
User avatar #209 to #208 - mylazy ONLINE (09/26/2013) [-]
Didn't you watch the movies? We did originally neuter them so that they couldn't go reproducing on their own. They found a way around it. Then ****** **** up.
User avatar #212 to #209 - sketchysketchist (09/26/2013) [-]
I thought they were all female dinosaurs who evolved rapidly into being about to reproduce with other females because "genetically engineered" in movies means giving you super powers?

Besides. The worst one can do is Asexually reproduce, and we can probably kill it before it can do such a thing.
User avatar #226 to #212 - mylazy ONLINE (09/26/2013) [-]
You are right. Sorry about that. On the bright side, anyone who hasn't watched the movies in awhile gets a refresher.
User avatar #214 to #212 - schneidend (09/26/2013) [-]
No, they were created with incomplete DNA from the amber mosquitoes, so the Park scientists used DNA from other species to fill in the gaps, the main one being a particular kind of tree frog that can switch from female to male if there aren't enough of either gender.
User avatar #224 to #214 - sketchysketchist (09/26/2013) [-]
Oh yeah.
Then in that case, we just need to make sure not to **** up by using that weird frog DNA.

We also have an entire trilogy to tell us how not to grow dinosaurs. Don't make predators, and especially not crazy smart super predators.
User avatar #201 - ryanon (09/26/2013) [-]
It wouldn't work anyways, our atmosphere is far too different from the one that existed during the time of the dinosaurs. It was far hotter and had far more oxygen thantoday (and I think the pressure was different also, I just forget in what way). Cloned dinosaurs would take 2 breaths and then die
User avatar #205 to #201 - Vpirate ONLINE (09/26/2013) [-]
Though we could keep them in an environment that mimics what the earth was like all those millions of years ago and observe them
