What Goes Around, Comes Around.

Hmmmmm. I'll say it again. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. Hmmmm. I'm not entirely sure what to make of Mark's shot here. Hmmmm. [Jesus, stop that, will you? -ed]

Ok, I got it. I missed the dinosaur swap. The people are running into the waiting arms and jaws of the terrible T. Rex, pictured here in the match's now-distinctive 60s science textbook style. (Interestingly, just as the Brontosaurus name is being scrubbed from our current scientific understanding, the "tyrant lizard" probably had feathers and looked more like a bird than a lizard. Mesofacts!)

And our natural disaster seems to have turned into much more of a man vs. dinosaur thing here. With the dinosaur possessing the clear upper hand, unless, as Dr. Grant suggested in Jurassic Park, the people stop running and stand very still so that he won't be able to see them. Let's see what happens in the next volley.

Play by play commentary for this match is provided, as it happens, by Jason Kottke.
