On one hand...
"...commercial collectors in the U.S. have helped find and dig up far more dinosaurs than museums and university researchers have the resources to find. This is valuable work, given how fast fossils exposed on the surface of the ground weather away."

On the other hand...
"...there are big scientific advantages to a system like Canada's where most dinosaur fossils remain in the public trust, whether they were found in public or private lands.
'All scientists prefer that model,' he said, 'because there is no chance of specimens being lost to a mantelpiece.' "

It's heartbreaking to lose a specimen to weather and / or vandalism...
It's heartbreaking to lose a specimen to someone's private collection.

What's a poor paleontologist to do?

In 2009, commercial fossil hunters in Montana dug up what was, unbenownst to them, an important new species of dinosaur. What happened next shows how the commercial fossil business controls scientists' access to dinosaur specimens — sometimes important ones.

I also would like to see every specimen in a museum or stored with some scientific team some place...but if private collectors have specimens that otherwise would not have been found, or would've disintegrated...doesn't science at least have a chance of examining them someday?
This is a tough call for me. Is there some way private collectors and Scientists could work in concert more effectively?

Redbull! Are you listening?

I'd love to see this sport and modern jousting really take off.
 
This looks like fun. 
Longsword enthusiasts are resurrecting ancient sword technique as a modern, organized sport, with timed bouts and complex rules.

Scenes of even the most bustling cities are eerily devoid of humans, except for the few who remained still for a few minutes, to sit on a step, or have their shoes shined. Most passed by without trace.
The daguerreotype came into widespread use from the early 1840s. Long exposure times meant the first subjects tended to be street scenes and cityscapes.

I like the ones with shadow the best. They seem more real to me.

Go at things with an open mind.  Going in a straight line seems so boring.

I have to say... the look on the kid's face is what makes this entire ad.
