Thirsty for Science

I raced a T. Rex so you don't have to. Dustin Growick loves dinosaurs, museums and running around shirtless. In this YouTube cinematic feat, he runs a theoretical race against a T. Rex, amongst other important Science.

I'm skeptical of the claim that there are dinosaurs in my gall bladder.

55 seconds is a pretty decent quarter mile time. But this unscientific study would require him to run faster than 15mph earlier rather than later in the race, as that's when the T Rex would most likely chomp him...just sayin'. After about 1/4 lap, T Rex would be looking for other delicacies in the food chain.

I'm rewatching and let's just say I'm glad those were oral thermometers and not, um... *cough*
Thirsty fun, but still safe for kids. LOL

They really didn’t account for the T. rex’s greater reach....
