If you’ve ever seen Jurassic Park, you probably remember the major take-away point: Don’t build a theme park full of cloned dinosaurs.

But perhaps Clive Palmer didn’t quite get the memo. The billionaire is reportedly trying to clone a dinosaur so that he can set it free in his new Palmer Resort in Coolum, Australia.

KEYWORDS: billionaires; dinosaurs; themepark
As long as he only clones females so they can't reproduce there shouldn't be a problem right?

Wait.....

Wut?

I hope he doesn’t substitute amphibian DNA for missing areas. ;-)

If he does he can provide a stock for Loch Ness.

I like the idea. Put in some mammoths and saber-toothed cats while you’re at it.

I would much rather see a real-life replica of Rome at its highest. The fountains, the plazas, the palaces, the temples.

At least it’s in Australia, where practically everything can kill you. I hope T. Rex can survive the rabbits.

One of our local TV networks recently put up a weather/ traffic camera system they opted to call Skynet... yeah sometimes people just don’t pay attention.

Nice idea: but unfortunately it's more likely we're going to see a real-life replica of the Diocletian persecution or the Caligulan terror first.

My God, what an incredibly stupid movie. Spewberg really outdid himself in the plot flaws in that one.

Nothing about it that .50cal BMGs and 20mms can’t easily handle. Y-a-w-n. Big, big, BBQ menu. Bring it on.

My takeaway point was don’t build critical systems with single source failure points. Redundancy in safety systems is important.

I thought this thread was going to be about a retirement home for aging Dems and RINOs.

Imagine what people would pay to hunt a T Rex! He’d make more money opening an exotic game hunting preserve. A T Rex head would look awesome over the fireplace.

Children in adult bodies with too much self esteem and a billion dollars to spend... Many of today’s billionaires are playing the fool.

That depends on Nessy's diet.
