Shocked by the attitudes

I teach and I usually have an Aspie student and we usually work well together. I do not try to change them and work toward their strengths and am often impressed by what they go on to do. Some of our other posters are Aspie also. When the normal posters know this, they seldom take offence. Glad you are posting with us.

People “on the spectrum” can sometimes be easier to converse with through a keyboard than in real life. There is only the text and nothing else, no body language, no gestures, no inflections of tone.
Just the text, nothing else.
Some “on the spectrum” are also direct (or blunt) and take it as perfectly natural if others write what they think, no careful circling of the sensitive subject, straight to the point and get it out.
Us “normies” often try to read between the lines to try and reconstruct the “missing” information that should have been present in a face to face verbal communication.

My oldest son is a Aspie ,little bit different from the "standard " he’s communicative and social…on he’s own terms :grinning: that means be ready to be interested in my scientific monologue at least once a day,the problem starts when he can’t avoid to point out your stupidity like “i don’t want to offend you but…” or “technically…” at that point brace yourself :joy: because the 11 years old makes you feel the idiot of the village, it’s just some people laugh some definitely not, but sometimes, luckily less often now when things go south explode the “monster” of rage and hunger and there the things are very bad for both ,total loss of emotional control and sometimes fiscal…one very long hour…but if you know him it’s ok you know he doesn’t want to say or do what he’s doing but if you don’t know what’s going on can be messy…never happened on a keyboard but i think could turn in a real poo show :face_with_peeking_eye:

This is pretty funny, I got into the same argument with my teacher back in elementary school…the 70’s. I used the same point, how does anyone know what color the dinosaurs were?

there are some proof for some, but not everyone (eeven less a t-rex), so one can do it as prehistoric planet did or something else (tho I wouldn’t go too far on the feathers due to preserved skin impression, on that I’d see something like tarbosaurus prehistoric planet working)

Melanosomes. They can be found in fossilised feathers and skin, although skin specimens are rare. This area of study is recent, a little over a decade old, so back in the '70’s you were correct.

Cheers,

Unless we have a paleontologist here to say otherwise, I would venture that there are far more species of dinosaurs known, than skin or feather fossil samples currently available and analyzed for each species. I think we have a lot of free range to do colors on our dinosaur builds :wink:

Did the dinosaurs have rivets? Maybe we can try to count them? :grin:

I’ll reserve judgement on dinosaur colors until AK comes out with the paint set.

Imagine the pain it would be if Dino’s had zimmerit, and you would have to sculpt it around their tails.

But some did! Genetic engineering allowed them to be resurrected and bred in quantity at the Iron Sky secret arctic and moon bases. Carried by those Hannibau Flying Saucers to be inserted behind Allied lines, they raised untold havoc. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

The colour film back then had a unstable chemistry and museum pieces will have faded and changed hue over time …

That will come out at the same time as their new painting guide…Camouflage Colors of The Dinosaurs: 400,000,000 BC to 500, 000,000 BC.
