  1. Again, it is too bad that Larry Hagman passed away, since ‘Dallas’ tends to air whenever TX oil production is over 2M barrels/day.

    It aired in the late 70s/80s, and is airing now. No coincidence at all that it airs when oil is gushing.

    1. I flew there and visited the Perot museum of science and natural history. It is all a blur but I “remember the Alamosaurus”

        ooh, did you hit the “giant sucking sound” exhibit?

        so lifelike.

        and, as we all know, you can’t put a porcupine in a barn, light it on fire, and expect to make licorice.

        1. It was standard fare for such a museum – closest to getting personal was the bird (brain) exhibit on floor 4M. In the paleontology section they actually had a temperature map to the last 500k years accurately showing our interglacial period has a lower temp than the max of other the other interglacial -even without man we have a few degrees to go.

          But other than that -same old crap. Astronomy section said Copernicus was a Polish Astronomer – rather than priest. Third floor had a graph of the population going to 10 billion with exhibits showing how we will run out of natural resources. Energy exhibit was all about renewables and how great they are – but at least they showed how oil was discovered drilled and cracked. And then there was the rant about global warming – And so on.

          Don’t get me wrong, it was a decent museum – it is just sad they all feel obligated to throw in all the mandatory
          leftist political dogma instead of sticking to science.

            oh, wow.

            i thought you were joking.

            i did realize it was a real museum.

          There really was an Alamosaurus. Bizarrely it was from New Mexico. The Paleontology exhibit on the fourth floor, was sponsored by T Boone Pickins.
