Well, I could post some things I've been trying to find Time for.
And, apropos of... well, Time, I suppose; xkcd, anyway... Driving along today, I passed a field of tall grass with several Canada geese in it. Just up against the sidewalk were a couple of the geese and several goslings, about 4 inches tall, which were poking around on the sidewalk. As the car went by the goslings startled and scrambled for the grass, and as always I was struck by how very dinosaurian they still are - they looked a lot like that picture of a raptor with night-vision goggles and a blaster.

Have you ever seen a bunch of chicks in the nest, all fluttering and climbing on each other and cheeping their tiny brains out? It doesn't sound like cheeping to me, it sounds like ‘pew, pew, pew, pew-pew,’ as if they're shooting tiny lasers everywhere.
And I started to wonder: if modern birds, or at least the chicks, have lasers, is that a holdover from dinosaurs? If dinosaurs had lasers, how come they aren't still around as a dominant species? If they didn't have lasers but are developing them now, are we in trouble?
Anyway, welcome to the inside of my head. What isn't puns, is stuff like this.
