2023.05.31 18:09 GlumSwimming6643 OSCE anxiety/lack of motivation
Just venting. I’ve got my third year OSCE in 2 weeks and I feel like I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place. I’m so worried for them but I can’t muster up the strength or energy to sit down and really get into revision. I feel so hopeless and burnt out after written exams a few weeks ago. I failed my second year OSCE on first attempt last year for similar reasons and I swore to myself that I wouldn’t let it happen again but I just feel so painfully hopeless. Like I don’t know where to even start and I feel like I’ve forgotten everything already.

2023.05.31 18:09 Expensive-Eye-6738 Forgive and Forget me not
I struggle with forgiveness. I have gone through most of my life where no one has apologized, acknowledged, or even bothered to circle back to what they have done to me. I know that is life, I know that comes with the territory of being a man. But I just feel like I have all these unsaved games and I just wish that someone would just apologize to me, acknowledge what they have done, and let me go.
I try really hard to not think about certain people, go to certain places, moved, and even shop in different places. I often feel like it's not enough eventually some not all of those folks find their way back like that Stephen King movie, 'Sometimes they come back'. When they do I am hit with all the intrusive thoughts, and feel that I have been sucked back down into the depths.
Truth is I am sick of trying, and sick of fighting. I don't hold all of this as closely as I used to or at all until I am confronted with it. I don't have parents, and I don't have other close family and I keep most people at a distance as I don't trust most people. I have been abused by key people and don't want to risk it. But I am tired of trying because no one else does, and I am tired of pretending all the time that I am ok with any of the things people have done to me.

2023.05.31 18:09 The_Patriot Loud mouth hyperviolent super-bitch Pauline Bauer to stay in prison for 2+ years.
A Pennsylvania restaurant owner who screamed death threats directed at then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi while storming the U.S. Capitol was sentenced on Tuesday to more than two years in prison.
Pauline Bauer was near Pelosi's office suite on Jan. 6, 2021, when she yelled at police officers to bring out the California Democrat so the mob of Donald Trump supporters could hang her.
In January, U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden convicted Bauer of riot-related charges after hearing trial testimony without a jury. The judge sentenced her to two years and three months of imprisonment, giving her credit for the several months she already has served in jail, court records show.
Prosecutors had recommended a prison sentence of six years and six months for Bauer, 55, of Kane, Pennsylvania.
Bauer was part of the mob that forced police officers on the East Plaza to retreat. After forcing her way into the Capitol, she accosted officers who were trying to secure the Rotunda, shoving one of them, and yelled at police to “bring them out or we’re coming in,” according to federal prosecutors.
“They’re criminals. They need to hang,” she screamed. “Bring Nancy Pelosi out here now. We want to hang (her). Bring her out."
Other rioters shouted threats against Pelosi while they roamed through the Capitol.
“Bauer’s threat to hang Speaker Pelosi was real, imminent, and placed the Speaker of the House in danger,” prosecutor James Peterson wrote in a court filing.
Bauer traveled from her north Pennsylvania home to attend then-President Donald Trump's “Stop the Steal” rally in Washington on Jan. 6. She had attended a “Stop the Steal” rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, a day earlier.
She came to Washington with at least five other people who have been charged in the Capitol riot, including co-defendant William Blauser, who pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge. Last year, McFadden ordered Blauser to pay a $500 fine but didn’t sentence him to any term of incarceration or probation.
McFadden convicted Bauer of all five counts in her indictment, including a felony charge that she obstructed the Jan. 6 joint session of Congress that certified President Joe Biden’s 2020 electoral victory.
Defense attorney Komron Jon Maknoon said Bauer never intended to interfere with the process of certifying the Electoral College vote. She “genuinely regrets her past actions” and doesn't pose a threat to the public, her lawyer said.
"The international spotlight showcasing her at her worst has deeply affected her," Maknoon wrote.
Prosecutors said Bauer lied during her trial testimony, giving a bogus explanation for her confrontation with police and claiming she didn't remember threatening Pelosi.
Bauer has used “sovereign citizen” extremist rhetoric and filed “nonsense" court documents while defending herself, prosecutors said.
More than a year before the trial, McFadden ordered Bauer to be jailed for several months for violating conditions of her release. She had claimed the court has no authority over her and told the judge that she doesn’t want “any lawyering from the bench.”
During an interview in 2021, Bauer said her arrest on Capitol riot charges led to a mixed reaction from neighbors in Kane, a small town on the edge of the 517,000-acre Allegheny National Forest.
“A lot of people say that they’re proud of me for standing up for my rights,” she told The Associated Press.
Bauer said her restaurant, Bob’s Trading Post, was thriving before the COVID-19 pandemic. She became known in her hometown as an outspoken critic of lockdown measures that cost her business.

2023.05.31 18:08 boycowman 1 Corinthians 15:22 ("For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.")
In context (1 Corinthians 15:20-28)
20 But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21 For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. 23 But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, then at his coming those who belong to Christ. 24 Then comes the end, when he delivers the kingdom to God the Father after destroying every rule and every authority and power. 25 For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death. 27 For “God has put all things in subjection under his feet.” But when it says, “all things are put in subjection,” it is plain that he is excepted who put all things in subjection under him. 28 When all things are subjected to him, then the Son himself will also be subjected to him who put all things in subjection under him, that God may be all in all.
This is a common verse used by Christian Universalists to argue for the eventual salvation of all people (the passage was a favorite of Origen and Gregory of Nyssa to support their doctrine of the restoration of all things). The "all" who shall be made alive in Christ are the same "all" who have died in Adam. It doesn't make sense that Paul would use "all" to mean opposing things in the same sentence. Opponents to this view will assert that Paul doesn't literally mean all people here, but "all types" of people. That is: "For as in Adam all types of people die, so also in Christ shall all types of people be made alive. " I find this unconvincing given the reference to Adam. Paul says in Romans 5: "Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned.
It's clear that Paul thinks all people -- every single person, not just all types -- died in Adam. If Paul had wanted to denote "all types" he could have indicated that. The reference to "all" who die in Adam strongly suggests universality.
Further on we have: "For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet." This also denotes universality.
Later: For “God has put all things in subjection under his feet.”
Now this is interesting, because this is one place where Paul *doesn't* mean "all" when he says "all." And we know this, because he tells us! ("But when it says, 'all things are put in subjection,' it is plain that he is excepted who put all things in subjection under him"). Paul goes out of his way to tell us here when he does not use "all" to denote universality.
Thus when Paul says "For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive," it's exceedingly likely that he is talking about all of humanity.
And really this makes sense, because we know from elsewhere in scripture that God wants all to be saved and to come to knowledge of him. We know that God is able to save all. We know that God is restoring all things to himself through the blood of the cross. We know that God's anger doesn't last forever, but his love does.
To quote the German pastor Ernst Christoph Hochmann von Hochenau:
"Concerning the restoration of damned men after death . . . : that just as all mankind are fallen in Adam so must all men be reborn through Christ, the other Adam; if this were not true, it would necessarily follow that Christ was not mighty enough to restore the human race which was lost through Adam, and in this connection the whole 5th chapter of the epistle to the Romans can be read, and from this it may be seen how the Restoration, through the mediatorship of Christ, is much stronger and more mighty than the power of sin through the fate of Adam. 1 Corinthians 15:22 states clearly that as in Adam all die, so in Christ shall all be made alive." (1702)

2023.05.31 18:08 poiuy_throwaway Neighbor thinks we're BFFs - how to set boundaries
Tldr - befriended someone whose oversharing and crossing boundaries. They're my neighbor. How do I draw the line in the sand tactfully?
A few months ago I found out my neighbor (who I barely spoke to up until this point) had his mother pass. Out of support, I offer he stop by now and then to hang out and get his mind off things.
Fast forward to today, this guy seems like he's using me in place of a therapist. Almost anytime I'm outside he comes over to talk. Normally he shares 1-2 anecdotes of what's going wrong in life. This can range from job worries, to sexual dysfunction issues, to unresolved trauma (and subsequent rants about wanting to attack supposed domestic abusers). I usually dismiss what he says and move along, thinking maybe the loss hit him hard - but I feel like this guy actually has no boundaries.
This past weekend, he invited me over to a party. Now, my wife's family is going through their own loss and we had a small gathering to help with the grief. I explained this to him and insisted I needed to be present for that. The guy ended up texting me still to ask what I was doing that day.
My gut says this guy just has a complete lack of boundaries. Being mindful he may be going through some things still, can anyone recommend some strategies for establishing my own boundaries and telling him he needs to stop coming to visit? Is this a situation where I'm better off just phasing him out?
Hunch is this needs to be quick and direct, but I don't even know if I should mention the "why."

2023.05.31 18:07 Keiuu What is your opinion about Burrows so far?
I'm up to date with Burrows, and I was pleasantly surprised! I generally take a while to read visual novels since I stop often, but I read this one entirely in two days!
The art is pretty good in both the sprites and the nsfw scenes.
The time travel aspect is very cool and intriguing so far, but to be honest I find the random notes you get kind of distracting, I'm not sure what their purpose is.
The only problem I might have so far is that I'm not liking that much the routes of Ken and Mark.
Hiro's route is amazing so far, and I loved the scene when he reveals that he's trans! it was very emotional.
Gabe's route also has been pretty entertaining, although I found myself speed reading the D&D stuff since I really don't like that game. Gabe's pretty childish tho, which gets annoying, but I guess that's his character arc.
I'm not a big fan of Ken's route so far... I think I should like the "bad homophobic boy is actually open to date men, specially YOU" but he's been so unstable, weird, and just sooo graceless that I think I'm not buying this whole thing. Also, the events in this route were a little bit less interesting in my opinion.
Also, I haven't liked Mark's route that much. I think it's pretty interesting to have a love interest that is a massive red flag, but I just don't find Mark endearing in any way, he just weirds me out. I didn't even like him in the Golden Place. It seems weird to me that Grey would stick with him.

2023.05.31 18:07 sim_pl US Pre-Orders are open
Just got the email:
FORGE AHEAD (From now until June 30th)
Send us your pre-order and preferred delivery location by June 30th, and we’ll assign you a priority build slot according to when you placed your original reservation. We recommend getting your specification right first time, and you can look forward to being in the first group of Grenadier owners in the US and Canada.
STAY AHEAD OF THE CROWD (June 30th onwards)
You’ll still be able to send us your pre-order after June 30th , but you’ll no longer have access to a priority build slot. Pre-orders are now open to customers without a reservation.
PRODUCTION AND DELIVERY UPDATE (By July)
As soon as your pre-order is planned for production, we’ll be in touch with estimated build timing. Please note, your pre-order will not be visible in your online account until this time, and it might take some weeks for us to plan all pre-orders for production. So sit tight.
MEET YOUR RETAIL PARTNER (From September)
Once we announce our retail partners, the one covering your preferred delivery area will be in touch to finalize details and plan for delivery of your vehicle.
We’re really looking forward to taking this next step in the Grenadier journey with you. In the meantime, check out our rugged 4X4 in action in Arizona.
I'm personally still on the fence for the price. I have a possible promotion/job change at work coming up - no idea if that would be done by June 30th, so I'm going to hold off until then...
I hate to say it, but it still this feels like the poor man's G-Wagon or rich man's "luxury Defender." I feel like in the US, 80% of buyers will be buying for the "lifestyle image", and maybe 20% will put it to use. I've been following the Grenadier from nearly day 1, but the pricing really was painful to finally see as I think it put it out of reach of the broader overlandeoffroader community. I'd be curious to know what other people are thinking, since the deadline is now approaching...

2023.05.31 18:07 matthewkatzeff Top Biden official suggests there are too many jobs while defending climate agenda in tense exchange
| || | submitted by matthewkatzeff to u/matthewkatzeff [link] [comments]
How out of touch with the people of this country could Biden and the dems possibly be??? We are in the midst of literally the worst financial crisis (among a bevy of other massive crises caused by this administration) possibly since the Depression - rampant inflation, people unable to get jobs - or needing multiple jobs just to put food on the table, massive increases in poverty and homelessness, etc. and Biden seems to think that there are TOO MANY JOBS available???
Proof once again that liberalism is truly a mental disorder. Biden and the dems are either completely delusional, or they are simply flat out lying to Americans (which includes people of all races, colors, religions, genders, classes, sexual orientations and heritages–including LEGAL immigrants) - placing all of our very lives in jeopardy just to forward their warped political agenda and secure more and more power. Either way they have no place leading this country any longer. It will be difficult enough to undo all of the massive damage that they have enacted in two short years.
INFLATION – INCLUDING GAS PRICES – WAS SOARING WAY BEFORE RUSSIA/UKRAINE. This was a direct result of Biden’s and the democrats’ draconian policies, rampant spending, ridiculously prohibitive and expensive regulations, and massive tax increases, and now they are trying to use the war to sweep it under the rug. In addition to the fact that the massive spike in gas prices began way before Russia/Ukraine, inflation on ALL goods had already been soaring throughout the country – food, building materials, gas, consumer goods, etc. – AND NOW THERE IS A FOOD AND A BABY FORMULA SHORTAGE – and NONE OF ANY OF THAT HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIA. Yes – gas prices will increase even further now as a result of the war (and only gas – the war has no impact on the prices of any other goods that are now at historical inflationary levels), but they will increase off of an already ridiculously historically high inflationary basis that was in place before the war even began!
While President Trump created the GREATEST economy US HISTORY (and the demographic which benefitted the most from President Trump's policies was the Black community), Biden has only occupied the White House for two years and has since created the WORST economy since the Depression – far worse than the economy he inherited, an economic crisis, an unemployment crisis, a border crisis, an energy crisis (we were completely energy independent under President Trump and didn’t buy our gas from anyone else – GAS PRICES WERE SKYROCKETING UNDER BIDEN’S POLICIES WAY BEFORE RUSSIA/UKRAINE), a foreign policy crisis, terrorist organizations such as ISIS, the Taliban and Al Qaeda have regained strength (and our enemies such as Russia, Iran and China now perceive us as being weak!), crime and murders at an all-time high, a racial crisis, and a country on the brink of civil war. In short – a massive crisis of our democracy as our country has now become a socialist’s haven under fascist rule.
Inflation is now soaring – gas prices, consumer products, construction products such as lumber (which has a direct impact on home ownership). We have gone from complete energy independence under President Trump to gas shortages and lines at the pump and complete dependence upon other countries (it seems that we have regressed 50 years back to the 1970s). Unemployment is soaring. Biden’s policies have literally destroyed millions of jobs. This country is on fire (quite literally in a great many cities – and Biden and the dems seem fit to not only allow it to happen, but encourage it, allowing the Antifa/BLM terrorists burning down the cities to go free while going after political enemies with tactics that cannot be described as anything short of gestapo partisan tactics).
For those of you who voted for Biden, do you still not yet see your massive mistake and how you have contributed to the destruction of this country??? This is your doing. Furthermore, the deaths of all those Afghan people - and all of the Americans who will be killed in future terror attacks that would have never occurred under President Trump - is not just on Biden's head - but yours as well, along with any other ignorant fascist who voted for him. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/top-biden-official-suggests-too-many-jobs-defending-climate-agenda-tense-exchange
2023.05.31 18:07 TheFuckingWriter Does The Shock Wear Off?
I recently purchased a 65" TV on the advice of this subreddit.
I am shocked at how big it is. It almost feels out of place in the room.
It is the largest size I can fit on my entertainment center and is about what is suggested for my viewing distance. I didn't have a TV for about six months and previously owned a 42" model. I have turned it on once or twice after setting it up and feels like I am being enveloped by it.
How long does it take for the shock to wear off? I'm afraid that every single time I walk into the room, I'm going to think that it's too big. Should I return it for a smaller 55" model? Maybe I could rearrange the room, but this is the best way for it to fit to be next to the cable jack, power outlets, etc.
I know many of y'all in here are of the "Bigger is better" ilk and that's what I've heard from a few friends, too. I also know many in here believe they should have got two sizes larger than they did (at least that's what they lead me to believe through their posts).

2023.05.31 18:07 pleportamee Is inventory management supposed to be difficult?
So I started playing Diablo 2 R recently.
Pretty cool game but inventory management seems unnecessarily difficult.
I typically find myself over encumbered before I even reach whatever dungeon I’m en route to.
I started picking up only what I want to keep which helped a little….but then I ran into something else.
You can’t really see the stats on an item until you have it in your inventory and “identify” it.
This means that I have to drop enough stuff just to place it in my inventory, use a scroll on it and then decide if I want to keep it. (Which 99% of the time I don’t)
My new strategy is ignoring all equipment except for “yellow” ones…which I’m sure means I’m missing out on good equipment every now and then.
I’m not here just to complain….if it is what it is,I’ll just deal with it until I beat the game.
However, I’m wondering if there’s some sort of feature that helps with inventory management that I’m not aware of.
As it stands now, loot drops seem like more of a chore than anything…

2023.05.31 18:07 popitpopit149 Turtle Time with Ramona and Avery Episode 6: Ramona’s Manhandling Tips + Building a Career
Avery scolds Ramona for interrupting her within the first minute and Ramona apologizes and says “Sorry, I was getting excited!”
Avery is in New York and complains that her friends are still going to the same places they went to five years ago, but mentions going to two new places that Ramona told her to go to.
“I met the owner, everyone, because I’m still very social.”
Avery seems extremely combative with Ramona on this episode which bodes well for the show going forward.
“I’m not waiting a week or two! I could be dead!”
Ramona informs us that she’s having a dinner party with eight of her closest girlfriends (including Carol Alt, one of her 50-80 closest girlfriends from her season 12 birthday party if I remember correctly) and is making her “famous chicken dish”
Avery pivots to the topic of the week, which is Ramona’s Cosmo article, and asks Ramona how she got that opportunity.
“Because the owner, a very famous woman, very influential in the magazine world, Helen Gurley Brown, she was at a dinner and my ex-boyfriend/fiancé sat next to her and he was extremely handsome and successful and all he could do was talk about me and how I broke his heart. And she said wow I know all these women who can’t find a guy and this woman broke his heart, I have to meet this woman! Like how did she-what did she do to get him so like enamored with her. And I wrote the article. How t- my ten Manhandling Tips.”
They got questions from fans about what Ramona was like in her 30s which inspired Ramona to talk about her Cosmo article for an episode.
Avery informs us that Ramona always tells her “guys are very shy”
Ramona’s tip to get a man:
Don’t give him your phone number, get his, then make him wait a few days before calling so he really wants you.
Only see the man you’re interested in twice a week otherwise you’re rushing things.
“I like to call it making love, you call it sex.”
Ramona and Avery both want romance and courtship back, which has come up before.
Avery starts to say she asked her guy friends about their thoughts on courtship or waiting to have sex and Ramona interrupts to inform her that they’re lying and we never get to hear what Avery’s guy friends told her lol
“Men are hunters, women are gatherers. It goes back to prehistoric times.”
“Once you start dating a man, it’s really important that, at your home, you keep his favorite drink.”
Another Ramona dating tip: Make him come over to your place, don’t spend time at his place otherwise you’re giving him everything.
Here we learn that Ramona got Mario to propose to her by telling him she wouldn’t move in with him without a ring on her finger.
“You know what they say, be afraid for what you ask for!”
Ramona doesn’t think people should live together unless they’re engaged, not for religious reasons, but because she thinks that there should be a firm commitment for a future before you move in together. She also says not to move in with someone you’re dating for purely financial reasons because that could lead to you getting trapped in a situation you don’t want to be in and can’t afford to leave, which I think is fairly solid and coherent advice from the Maven of Dating.
Avery lists the rules Ramona has always told her:
- Never move in with someone without a ring on your finger.
- Always be financially independent and make your own money.
- Love what you do and money will come.
- Don’t wait for people to call you, you should be proactive and reach out to them.
- Be a hustler, don’t be afraid of taking risks.
Ramona says don’t be afraid to ask someone to set you up with someone on a date.
“Some women are giving birth in their 50s!”
Ramona is ready for Avery to have a baby which I agree with just because Grandma Ramona would be so funny. She would be so rude to that baby.
Avery started talking too much and I zoned out for a bit around here sorry to Avery but I’m not here for you, pipe down and let Ramona say women are gatherers.
Ramona describes giving advice to her friend who wasn’t feeling confident and says she told her to stand in front of a mirror and say “I am fabulous. I am smart. I am fun. I am intelligent. I am caring. I am worthy of every man in this world.”
Some boring work advice from Avery here that I don’t care about. It wasn’t really bad advice I just didn’t care.
Most of the ending of this episode is business advice that wasn’t particularly funny but I did like Ramona saying you should “dress like the vice president” when going in for a job interview.
Don’t let Avery talk this much, Ramona. I’m not here for her. I’m here for you saying insane things.

2023.05.31 18:07 noneami In laws MH is breaking us
7 months ago my BIL hit a crisis point with their MH, which has been brewing over the past 5 years.
SO (of 5 years) has been their main means of emotional support, but in the past 6 months this has filtered into every aspect of our lives. BIL moved in with us with nowhere else to go, and we are adapting constantly around his needs and care while he finally accesses professional support, which he's taking tiny steps towards but asking for so much patience from us. We can't force him to do more, but we also can't continue like this.
I WFH and it has severely disrupted me lifestyle, work-life balance and own MH - BIL is extremely low functioning at the moment with no ability to go out, work etc. This has been the case for the last 6 months. Some professional support and medication is in place but seeing little effects. We know these things take time, as does BIL's ability to go through state support processes.
TL;DR me and SO are crumbling and don't know what to do. I'm looking for advise on anyone who has been through something similar - an in-laws crisis situation that has affected and impacted your own MH and relationship, and how it got better.

2023.05.31 18:07 CJSchmidt Good local radio/podcast shows?
I've lived here a few years now and I still don't feel like I really know anything about what's going on in the city and would like to change that.
Where I used to live there was a great afternoon/drive time radio show hosted by people who grew up in the area. They talk about everything, but they also would bring in local figures to play games, do top 10 places for X, and discuss and joke about the weird cultural stuff that everybody who grew up here knows, but isn't really written down anywhere.
Every time I turn on the radio it's sports, news, or generic morning DJs. Maybe Lincoln (and the current state of terrestrial radio) just isn't big enough to support something like I'm looking for, but I desperately want to find a way to keep up with what's going on and learn about my community. I subscribed to the Journal for a bit, but their local content beyond sports was pretty dismal.
Can anyone recommend a radio show (hopefully one that posts podcasts/on-demand), a tv show, or something? Maybe even a good blog? This sub is about the best I've been able to find but I'd really love something I could listen to while working or driving. Thanks!

2023.05.31 18:06 Winter-Chapter-5449 Help knowing what I should do for money while searching for a career.
I just graduated from college last week. Now that school is over I am very anxious about making ends meet while I wait to hear back from places I apply to. Some jobs, like government jobs, that I am very hopeful about I have heard can take months to get the final offer and I know I do not have the savings to take me months into the future. I have a significant other who is willing to help me if I need it but I don’t like to ask unless it’s dire. I do get disability at 3600 per month so I just need a thousand or so more per month to feel comfortable. So what I would like to do is find some sort of work in the meantime, I’m just not sure what would make sense for me and hoping some people could provide some guidance on this.
I am really looking at ways to have some income while trying to find my first job. Some ideas I have already are trying to find an online data entry gig, there’s an online court reporter type job that doesn’t require experience, and then finally I could try to find something as a medical receptionist (I have a lot of experience in that) my fear is starting somewhere and then getting the job offer I want and quitting immediately. That just feels shitty to me but maybe I’m wrong. So, would it be better to do something like DoorDash, work at target, or grocery store or something like that?
Thank you for any advice you can provide!

2023.05.31 18:06 Ok-Kick832 hello everyone I had this what if in my head months ago and so I finally wrote it down over the course of months it was, what if mammals dominated during the Mesozoic? And what would WWD be like?
Hope you enjoy this first is NEW BLOOD
By a river, a female Archosaur stalks a herd of dicynodonts called Placerias, looking for weak members to prey upon. Downstream, a male feathered dinosaur resides in a tree with his family. A female Postosuchus, a rauisuchian and one of the largest carnivores alive in the Triassic
, attacks the Placerias
herd, and wounds one individual; the herd scatters, leaving the wounded Placerias
to the Postosuchus
. Early bats are depicted feeding on dragonflies and cooling themselves in the little water remaining during the drought before being eaten by a larger dragonfly. Searching for food, a female badger like mammal, alongside another badger, discovers the dinosaur nest; the female wards them off. Later that evening, after he goes off hunting, an inquisitive chick follows but falls onto land trying to follow its father and is caught by the female badger. At night, the dinosaurs pick up their remaining pups and then move away. On the next day, the badgers work to collapse the tree. The female Postosuchus
meanwhile is shown to have been wounded by the Placerias
, a prior attack on them leaving her with a tusk wound on her thigh. After being unable to successfully hunt another Placerias
, she is expelled from her territory by a predatory phytosaur. Wounded, sick, and without a territory, the female Postosuchus
dies and is eaten by a pack of archosaurs. As the dry season continues, food becomes scarce. The Placerias
herd embarks on a journey in search of water, while the archosaurs begin to cannibalise their young, and the male dinosaurs also resorts to hunting baby badgers at night. Finally, the wet season arrives; the majority of the archosaurs have survived (including the lead female), and the dinosaur pair have a new clutch of eggs. The episode ends with the arrival of a herd of giant Procoptodon like mammal which are followed by a large fox like mammal which fights and kills a Postosuchus.
TIME OF THE TITANS
This episode follows the life of a female prosauropod, beginning at the moment when her mother lays a clutch of eggs in the heart conifer forest. Three months later, some of the eggs hatch; the young prosauropods are preyed upon by fox like mammal and other dinosaurs. After hatching, the hatchlings retreat to the safety of the denser trees. They face many dangers as they grow, including predation by the foxes and existing Smilodon like mammals which are replacing the foxes increasingly . Even a giant Deinotherium like mammal accidentally also kills one of the hatchlings by swinging its tusks while fending off a pair of Smilodon like mammals and a weird crocodile like cetan. Elsewhere, adult herds of prosauropods are shown using their massive weight to topple trees in order to reach cycad
leaves and giant ferns. Each one hosts a small mobile habitat of damselflies
, bats, and beetles
. After some time, the creche of cute creatures have grown into subadults. Nearly all are killed by a huge forest fire; only three survivors emerge onto the open plains, including the young female. They encounter several Paracetherium before only two reach safety of a herd of adult prosauropods. Several years later, the female mates, and a few days after, is attacked by a bull smilodon like mammals. She is saved when another prosauropod strikes the Allosaurus
with its tail. She rejoins the herd, albeit with deep wounds on her side, but she will recover. The closing narration notes that their successors the sauropods will in the Cenozoic become the largest animals ever to walk the Earth but currently its the paracetherium.
episode begins with a small elephant like mammal being snatched from the shore by a male Liopleurodon
. It then cuts to show how dinosaurs have dominated the European islands with fauna similar to the ones in Jurassic Impact
. Meanwhile, hundreds of cetans arrive from the open ocean to give birth but they are attacked by a Basilosaur look a like. Hybodus
and a Liopleurodon
are on the hunt; when a mother cetan has trouble giving birth, a pair of Hybodus
pursue her. They are frightened off by the male Liopleurodon
, which eats the front half of the cetan. Meanwhile, a Andrewsarchus like mammal the last of its kind if you forget the fox like mammals swims to an island and discovers a turtle carcass; it fights over the carcass with another. Later, during the night, a group of horseshoe crabs
gather at the shore to lay their eggs, which attracts a flock of bats in the morning to eat the eggs. However, a few of the bats are caught and eaten by a giant dragonfly . While the cetan juveniles are growing up, they are hunted by Hybodus
, which in turn, are prey for the Liopleurodon
. While the male Liopleurodon
is hunting, he encounters a female Basilosaurus like mammal; after the male bites one of her flippers, she retreats from his territory, and a group of Hybodus
follows the trail of her blood. A cyclone
strikes the islands, killing many animals, including several bats and the basilosaurus, who is washed ashore and eventually suffocates under his own weight. A group of small dinosaurs feed on her carcass. At the end of the episode, the juvenile cetans that survived the storm are now large enough to swim off and live in the open sea but are hunted by some other cetans.
GIANT OF THE SKIES
The episode begins with the last giant Dragonfly dead on a beach. Six months earlier, the last Dragonfly, resting among a colony of breeding giant bats in Brazil
, flies off for Cantabria
where he too must mate. He flies past a migrating
group of chalicothere mimics and the nodosaur Polacanthus
. He reaches the southern tip of North America
, where he is forced to seek shelter from a storm. He grooms himself, expelling his body of fleas; the wings begin to change colour in preparation for the mating season. He then sets off across the Atlantic
, which was then only 300 kilometres wide, and after a whole day on the wing, reaches the westernmost of the European islands. He does not rest there however, as a pack of dromaeosaurs are hunting horses; a young one is bullied off an Horse carcass by the adults. The Dragonfly flies to the outskirts of a forest to rest after stealing a fish from a bat, but is driven away by a flock of new fliers called Anurognathids. Flying on, he reaches Cantabria, but finds no other dragonflies and consequently he does not mate. After several days under the sun trying to attract a mate, the protagonist dragonflies dies from a combination of heat, stress and starvation. . The new replacements bats feeds on its corpse.
SPIRITS OF THE ICE FOREST
A few hundred kilometres from the South Pole
, a clan of Leaellynasaura
emerge during spring after several months of total darkness. They feed on the fresh plant growth (which has adapted to the changing seasons), and build nests to lay their eggs; a Koolasuchus
also wakes and heads to a river, where he will stay during the summer. Out on the banks of the river, migrating herds of Macraucheia have also arrived to feed and lay their eggs. When summer arrives, many of the Leaellynasaura
clan's eggs have been eaten; however, those of the matriarch hatch successfully. Meanwhile, a male Polar Smilodon like mammal and its pride hunts both the Leaellynasaura
and the Macraucheia, the latter species also having to deal with blood-sucking birds the Smilodon male deals with being attacked and exiled by a larger male. When autumn arrives, the herd begins to migrate, and the Koolasuchus
leaves the river to find a pool for hibernation and all the cubs of the old male Smilodon are killed. During the migration, some Muttaburrasaurus
become lost in the forest; they vocalize loudly while trying to return to their herd, preventing the Leaellynasaura
clan's sentries from hearing the male Smilodon approaching. It manages to kill the matriarch of the clan. Winter descends and the forest is shrouded in darkness, but the now matriarch-less Leaellynasaura
clan is able to stay active, using their large eyes to help them forage for food. The clan and other creatures are also shown to use various methods of coping with the cold.. Finally, spring returns, and two Leaellynasaura
males challenge each other for the right to mate, and the clan establishes a new dominant pair and the old male Smilodon kills the new male Smilodon and takes the pride back. The closing narration acknowledges that soon this landmass will be pulled closer to the South Pole and when that happens, this unique ecosystem and its inhabitants will disappear.
DEATH OF THE DYNASTY
Several months before the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event
, the last mammals are living under intense environmental stress due to excessive volcanism
. A female giant Entelodont like monotremes abandons her nest, the eggs rendered infertile due to acidic pollution. Her calls for a mate are answered by a smaller male, who kills a young rhino like mammal to appease her. Three days later, after repeated copulation, she drives him off. The mother fasts as she tends to her nest, contending with raids by dromaeosaurs
and Squirrel like mammals. Meanwhile, herds of deer like mammals wander between islands of vegetation among the volcanic ash, and rhinoceros rut for the right to mate, while losing their young to attacking dromaeosaurs. Only three of the Entelodont hatches ; the mother hunts one of the last elephants to feed herself and her brood. One of the last giant bats flies into the area and is killed by the last cetans. Several days later, while defending her two surviving offspring, the mother is fatally injured by the tail of an Ankylosaurus
. The juveniles remain expectantly next to the carcass of their mother the next morning; several hours later, they are killed along with the other mammals in the region by the impact of a comet
in the Gulf of Mexico
. The impact, said to be as powerful as ten billion Hiroshima bombs
, resulted in 65% of life -the mammals included- dying out in the ensuing cataclysmic changes to the climate. In an epilogue, the present-day African plains are shown; while they are now dominated dinosaurs after millions of years of recovery from the impact, they are still populated by a small group of mammals that did survive the extinction: the rodents, the squirrels and many other small vermin like mammals.
THE GIANT CLAW- TO EDIT
searches the late Jurassic islands for Therizinosaurus
, who has massive and very long claws.
The episode starts off with Nigel in his ship where he shows a giant claw that scientists originally thought to be the rib of a giant turtle but was actually the claw of Therizinosaurus. He is interrupted when a giant turtle passes through and he films them. The turtle sneezes on him and Nigel sets off on his journey
Nigel comes across a nesting ground of heterodontosaurs that he crosses by using a red flag to draw their attention while one snaps at his cameraman. They travel
into a forest where they watch a pack of cassowary like dinosaurs and their friends hunt heterodontosaurs. In a different forest, Nigel sets camp and finds a scorpion that he keeps. At night, a group of Mononykus like creatures approach the camp site and Nigel tries to catch one. After he caught one, he discovers that they have feathers but he puts his thumb in its mouth causing it to bleed. The next morning, Nigel finds that the Mononykus have eaten his scorpion and he packs up his camp. In the scrublands, Nigel hides in the vegetation urging his cameraman to turn off the camera when he spots
a feathered predator that spooks some Mononykus.
Then Nigel waits out at a beach with some Heterodontosaurs and Mononykus as a perfect place for theropods to hunt prey. There he finds a hatched nest with the skeleton of a baby Therizinosaurus in a partially hatched egg as well as herbivore dung. Not far away, he finds a full skeleton of a Therizinosaurus. A large crocodile notices him and chases him and his cameraman into the forest. They climb onto tall tree stumps out of their reach and use a bicycle horn to scare of the raptors. After hearing commotion from the heterodontosaurs, Nigel returns to the watering hole where a feathered apex comes to scavenge and drink but is interrupted by the roar of a Therizinosaurus leading to a clash of the titans. The Therizinosaurus
fends off the Tarbosaurus
with its formidable claws forcing it to back down. Nigel then finds whole herd of Therizinosaurus emerging from the forest and it
is a herbivore that uses its sickle-claws to hook tree and bush branches towards its mouth. Nigel ultimately concludes that it was gentle herbivore by touching one that licks him and knocks him over.
Land OF GIANTS
Nigel travels back in time with his film crew. He travels to a nearby lake, where large mammals named Brutodontids nest every year. There Nigel sees a juvenile Brutodon, where he is attacked by a giant mosasaur. Nigel then coaxes it out of the lake by splashing a stick in the water. It lays on the shore. Nigel attaches a video camera to his head and walks towards it, and demonstrates it's biting power by pushing a stick into it's mouth and having it bite down on it.
Later Nigel climbs up the volcanic slopes to get a panoramic view of the area to see Brutodon herd. Instead he finds a herd of small horses. His search leads him all the way to the coast, where he views a colony of medium sized bats on the cliffs hunting fish. Nigel doesn't return to the campsite until night, where he finds that a large predator has attacked his tent, and left all the provisions littered across the surrounding ground. He finds a single theropod dinosaur tooth jammed in a can of meat.
The next morning Nigel has set up an alarm system outside the camp so that if something breaks the laser tripwire, a loud alarm will sound, alerting Nigel. Later he tracks down the predator, where, around midday, Nigel hears a commotion further ahead. He finds a wounded horse in a rocky gully. He walks further upstream to find a smaller dead individual with a strange feathered apex predator eating it.
Later Nigel is shown flying over the ash-fields in an ultralight. Soon he finds another Sea Bat flock. After breaking away he sees a giant bat, one of the largest animal ever to fly. Soon Nigel discovers the Brutodon herd far below, so he lands the ultra light nearby his jeep. He then drives off towards the herd and locates it without any trouble.
After appreciating their gargantuan size, Nigel drives into a natural 'funnel', caused by a break in some trees. He then sets up some weighing scales designed for lorries. After several fruitless attempts, an Brutodon steps on the scales, showing that it weighs 92.3 tonnes, and Nigel explains that that's the same as 30 African elephants.
The next morning Nigel in chasing an horse 20 miles away from the camp in the jeep, when he realizes that it is actually running because a Giganotosaurus
is chasing them both. Nigel narrowly escapes the predator only to meet up with the herd later in the morning to find an entire pack of Giganotosaurus
mobbing the herd but most are killed.
By the afternoon the pack has singled out a juvenile, and are inflicting wounds, waiting for her to bleed to death. The hunt continues for the rest of the day and into the night, when filming is no longer possible and Nigel must leave.
The next morning, Nigel finds the herd at the nesting site beside the lake. While the females lay their eggs Nigel comments on what a magical ending this is for his dinosaur safari. Suddenly a Mosasaur lunges at him out of the water
NEW DAWN- WWB REALITY
The episode starts by showing how the mammals were dominating the land and that dinosaurs were small. Then it shows how "an asteroid the size of Mount Everest" struck the Earth and demolished the mammals, and how dinosaurs evolved into new forms thereafter. The first episode depicts the warm tropical world of the early Eocene, sixteen million years after the extinction of the giant mammals. Bats, the one of the surviving lineage of the mammals, including the giant carnivorous Mega Bat, rule this world, while dinosaurs are still very small. The setting is near the Messel pit in Germany. Due to volcanic activity, sudden bulk escapes of carbon dioxide trapped underneath lakes pose a significant hazard to the local wildlife. The episode centers around a Parkosaur family, a leaping, shrew-like dinosaur, which has emerged in the dawn hours to forage for food. As the mother forages, first in solidarity, and then with her pups, she wanders near a large predatory mammal, identified as an Ambulocetus the last cetan
. A female Mega Bat, who has been taking care of the single undeveloped baby in her nest, makes two attempts to hunt a small herd of Protoceratops like dinosaurs
, early ceratopsians. The first attempt fails when sounds among the vegetation betray her presence and they mob her. The second attack proves successful when the Protoceratops
consume fermenting grapes and are unable to evade her attack also defends her territory from another. Unfortunately, while the mother hunts, a horde of Titanomyrma
, giant carnivorous ants, encounter the baby when it dropped out of the nest, and successfully kill and eat the chick. When the female discovers her dead offspring at dusk she leaves the forest to try and start another family.
With the arrival of night, a band of lemur-like Godinotia
, socialize and copulate in the dark the narration reveals how they will be the most successful in this new world. Ambulocetus
finally manages to catch a Flamingo like bird near the lake edge. As the night wears on, an earth tremor unleashes trapped carbon dioxide out from underneath the lake and the gas suffocates most of the surrounding life. The Parkosaurs survive because the nest was upwind of the gas while the Bat was killed because she stayed in that area in the forest.
It is mentioned that although they survived the gas, they would ultimately leave many descendants, while the Ambulocetus
, who was killed by the lethal gases, would leave none.
This episode introduces the Mosasaur, an ancient type of mosasaur. Mosasaur became the new king of the ocean after the giant cetans of the Mesozoic
died out alongside the mammals (see Cruel Sea
). It was much bigger than the sharks it shared the ocean with, and it regularly ate the sharks. However, Mosasaur was still less advanced than the modern species; it still had rear flippers (that helped it during the mating) and lacked the blubber. At the same time, this program depicted the beginning of 'climate chaos' - a relatively minor extinction event between Eocene and Oligocene, also known as "The Great Cut". On land dinosaurs too have become big and huge. This episode featured Torosaurus like ceratopsians and the Andrewsarchus, a mammal that was considered to be a relative to the kings of the Cretaceous the Entelodont. Both were much bigger than the land dinosaurs featured in New Dawn
episode, but their brains were still small and their behavior - primitive. They were the first true dinosaur rulers of the land and most of them would die out during "The Great Cut". As the El Nino continues and the extinction event is beginning, the female Mosasaur is forced to change her hunting ground from open seas to mangrove swamps (the future Sahara
desert). There she encounters small sharks, Apidium
, and Moeritherium
. It is described as the last stronghold of the mammals A spinosaurid like dinosaur eats an Apidium
but is too small to attack Moeritherium, The mosasaur hunts and eats one alive. She leaves.
The Torosaurus continue to strive but most of the juvenlies are killed young by the poisonous plants of their home Two Andrewsarchus
steal such a calf, but begin to fight over it in order to determine which of them gets to eat it first. The calf's mother decides that the calf is alive and fights off the Andrewsarchus
- for a time, but leaves when the rest of her young hatch.
The female Mosasaurus discovers a lagoon where dolphin like mammals that appeared after the mass extinction of cetans are beginning to calf. At first the smaller whales use their numbers' advantage to chase away the giant, but the female Mosasaurus eventually returns and begins to hunt and devour the calves - and this time the adults can't stop her.
Several months later Basilosaurus
gives birth to her own calf, but the episode ends saying that both the mother and child are doomed to perish - but whales as a group will survive.
LAND OF GIANTS
The third episode takes place in late Oligocene Mongolia, where seasonal rains are followed by long periods of drought. It follows a mother giant hawk, an enormous herbivorous bird , and her young male calf. The mother struggles to raise her calf, fending off predators such as Dromaeosaurs and trying to teach the calf to survive on its own. The episode also follows other animals in the surroundings, including a Therizinosaurid, tyrannosaurids and iguanodontids, and the hardships they endure as the new animals from the south move in.
NEXT OF KIN
A family group of the descendants of the Apidium is down; yet another female was killed by the Troodontids that hunt them, leaving behind an orphan daughter. The males of the group, Grey and Hercules, are beginning to challenge each other for leadership, and the females are supporting Hercules rather than Grey, A bigger, more numerous group attacks, driving the focus group from their old home. Because of this, they start to migrate through the highlands of Ethiopia, searching for a new one. During their travels they meet a large stegosaurid in musth which chases them away from its territory as it tries to wow a much larger female. They settle in a area with a waterfall where many iguanodontids roam they try to scare them off but can't. However it is also home to a large allosaur type creature which kills many and drags the rest for its chicks to eat. Grey is killed in the process and using some planning they steal some of the allosaurs chicks and cause it to migrate for the safety of its chicks. That night one of the babies is stolen by a Troodontid which now rule the area without the constriction of the Allosaur. One day the female orphan is attacked by the Troodontids in full daylight when the rest rally together and try and kill the Troodontid. They settle down and some evolved descendants of the protagonist from the first episode comes and eats the lice in their fur.
The fifth episode shows the strange fauna of the isolated continent of South America and explores the effects of the Great American Interchange, which had happened 1.5 million years earlier. Since South America had drifted apart from Antarctica 30 million years ago, many unique dinosaurs had evolved, including a Ankylosaurus like creature , an armored armadillo-like ankylosaur with a cannon ball-sized spiked club on its tail; An edmontosaurus like dinosaur, a camel-like dinosaur with a long trunk and though not a dinosaur a large heron like pterosaur has evolved larger than the largest of the bats.
Before the continents of South America and North America collided, a 10-foot-tall predatory bear called with sabre teeth like Smilodon, had reigned as top predator. However, the great birds, migrating from the north, soon displaced them as top predators. The episode focuses on a male bear, a saber-toothed ursine, called Half Tooth, who lives a lone life in a territory of females all of their cubs are his one day two males chase him out and try to become the individuals the females mate with.
Next, the episode shows The new birds hunting down the edmontosaurs and the bears trying to protect the young from the two brothers (in vain) but they are eventually killed when they go hunting. In the background, the mammals still hunt, but give way to the birds. However, a therizinosaurid, who wanted to eat meat as diet supplement, charges the pack while the males attempted to mate, in order to eat some of the carrion. In the process, it kills the dominant rival male, enabling Half Tooth to return, kill the other male and reclaim his territory. Then he had another litter of cubs. Meanwhile the pterosaurs arrive for their winter migration.
narrator reveals that the world's climate is starting to deteriorate, bringing on an ice age. This means all animals, even the mighty titanosaurs and their symbiotic bird partners are struggling with the last of their kind living in the focus herd. One of the herd falls through a pond concealed by ice. Her sisters comfort her, and in the morning the scavengers Troodontids and humans gather gather. The herd then have no choice but to leave their fallen sister to prepare for the coming Ice Age winter. The narrator also reveals that so much water is frozen at the poles, causing sea levels to drop. A vast Ice Age forest, which today is the North Sea, supports an array of dinosaurs including a herd of titanosaurs. Also residing on the plains in summer is a new creature: Human
Despite having no physical adaptations for the cold, they wear animal hides to keep warm. The episode's main focus is the mammoth's 400 kilometre migration to the Alps and back in the spring. Meanwhile, two stigymoloch like dinosaurs are fighting for a harem of females, but are then ambushed by the humans who kill one of the males. As the titans migrate, one of the herd and the juveniles under her care are separated and stalked by a woolly giganotosaurus, but survive.
Upon reaching the Alps, the mother and the juveniles are reunited with the herd. Here in the valleys, one of the herd lays her eggs to return next year to raise the survivors and the birds mate with each other and a new generation is born, some leave into the Alps but many stay with their parents. The episode also focuses on the Neanderthal
, who, despite being built for the cold, is struggling as a result of the Ice Age. One of them is attacked by a Woolly Pachyrhinosaurus, but survives because of his shorter stature and thicker bones.
As the titanosaurs migrate back to the plains, they come into Neanderthal territory where the juveniles is annoyed by the mammals and one is killed by the largest of them all Cave Foxes which drag them down to their cliff home where several giant Parkosaurs watch. they arrive back in their forest where the Gigantosaurus the only thing an adult fears attacks and kills the matriarch. The humans scavenge on the carcass. The titanosaurs are revealed to be going extinct with their herd being the largest thanks to the Ice Age while their birds have a different story thanks to their big partners. The scene then changes to the Oxford Museum and the narrator reveals that "If all this has taught is anything, it's this: no species lasts forever.
BALLAD OF BIG AL
The special begins at the University of Wyoming's
Geological Museum, showing the bones of a baby prosauropod followed by an Allosaurus (2.1 metres tall is the maximum height)
named Big Al
. After the ghost of Big Al wanders the museum passing by his own skeleton and a burrow with some fossilized eggs, the film then travels back in time to 150 Mya
) showing a similar nest. Al and his siblings are hiding in the burrow when they are called by their mother. She brings them to a river bank and the hatchlings start to hunt for insect
s and lizards. When the mother leaves the hatchlings
temporarily, a predatory Dilephodon like mammal comes out of hiding and kills one of them (luckily, the victim was not Al).
Al is then shown at the age of two years. He tries to hunt a flock of Dryosaurus
. He has not yet learned how to ambush from his mother so he fails to kill one of the swifter, smaller dinosaurs. Later, he snatches a lizard from a branch to keep him satisfied. Al comes across a dead Deinotherium like mammal and an Allosaurus
waiting for death in a pit of sticky mud, which forms a predator trap
. Meanwhile, a two-year-old female Allosaurus
, attracted to the carcass, also gets stuck. She struggles to free herself, but fails. Al luckily avoids the same fate, because he has learnt to avoid carrion
and the large carnivores that it usually attracts. Unable to escape, the trapped Allosaurus
pair die of exhaustion, their corpses left to the bats. Al returns to his mother and his three siblings and feasts on the carcass she has caught.
Three years pass, and a herd of juvenile Prosauropods are migrating across their forest home and into the grasslands, heading for a herd to the south. Al, now 1.2 meters long, is joined by several other Allosaurus
(possibly, his siblings) and they manage to successfully panic the herd into leaving a weakened sick individual behind. But as the Allosaurus
gather for the kill, Al is struck down by the neck of the prosauropod. The pack decides to wait for a few hours until the prosauropod is brought down by heat exhaustion and his illness. Though they feed, within the hour, a five-year-old female Allosaurus
scavenges the kill. Al takes some remnants of the carcass for himself and leaves, trying to find a safer place to eat.
3 years pass by, and Al, now 1.8 metres long with the crests over his eyes reddening, is shown drinking at a pond. His presence however makes other mammals around the pond nervous and the smell of blood he brings with him puts off a pair of Deinotherium that were attempting to mate. Away from the pond, he discovers the scent of a nearby six-year-old female Allosaurus
and issues a mating call
. She is interested, but as Al attempts to mate, a Smilodon like mammal out on the prowl pack attacks and kills the female. Al is lucky enough to escape from the ensuing fight with his life, although he sustains injuries to his right arm as well as smashed ribs. Later the dry season comes, and Al is attempting to hunt a flock of rabbit like mammals as the Dryosaurus have moved away. Whilst ambushing them however, he steps on a hedgehog like mammal and kills it but then it is stuck in his foot so he ends up breaking something in his right foot in the resultant fall; he limps away the, his chances of survival as prey gets scarcer now very unlikely. As the dry season turns to a drought, Al's limp from the fall gets worse and his right middle toe -which he broke in the fall- has become badly infected. Soon, unable to hunt because of this handicap, he dies in a dried-up riverbed, where two hatchling Allosaurus
are hunting for bugs and come across his emaciated carcass where they eat his eyes and tongue and leave. He is said not to have reached full size, dying as a mature adolescent and that the process of his fossilisation was so perfect it preserved even the injuries he sustained in his lifetime including -amongst others- lumps where his ribs healed after their break and the raging infection on his middle toe even the hedgehog he stepped on. The narrator concludes the special stating how Big Al, in death, represents a frozen moment in the fast and furious life of a carnivorous dinosaur.
Now I'm going to do the worst part of WWD, Walking With Dinosaurs 3D and I'm going to remove the voices and keep it as an actual documentary
In the early cretaceous a few million years before the fourth episode of WWD a thing that was actually good and next to the western interior seaway. Patchi is the youngest and smallest in a litter of tiny baby Torosaurus like dinosaurs that are being out competed by pronghorn like mammals. Their father Bulldust the leader is the leader of the herd. Patchi is also attacked by a bird, which attempts to eat him, but he is saved by his caring mother, resulting in Patchi having a hole in his frill as an injury.
Later, Bulldust moves his herd south as well, but when they try to pass through a forest, they are forced to flee when the local Dromaeosaurs make fire to flush out some pronghorns and a forest fire erupts. Taking advantage of the chaos, a pack of dromaeosaurs attacks the scattered herd. They kill most of Patchi and Scowler's family, while their leader and alpha, Gorgon, fights and kills Bulldust while he’s trying to run away as he cares nothing about his children thanks to his kind's ability to breed like rabbits. Afterwards, Patchi's herd, now led by Bulldust's mate, combine with a female named Juniper's herd as they continue their migration. Gorgon's pack attacks them again, and in the ensuing chaos, Patchi, Scowler, Juniper (and many others) fall into a river and are swept downstream to the ocean all juveniles but Juniper, Scowler and Patchi killed in the process, with a scavenger bat following them from above. At a beach, Scowler follows a herd of rhino like mammals to find food, leaving Patchi and Juniper behind as they are scarred up and Juniper's eye is destroyed. The two make their way through a forest and eventually are able to find their herd and Scowler.
After years of making the same migration from north to south and vice versa, the leader of the herd is killed in a river by two cetans Scowler confronts his brother and his gang of friends and challenges him for a battle in exchange for leadership of the herd. Scowler, as he is much stronger and larger than Patchi, quickly gains the upper hand and defeats his brother by trapping him under a young tree before disowning him and ordering Juniper, along with the rest of the herd, to leave Patchi behind. Despondent and heartbroken, Patchi, now trapped underneath the tree and unable to do anything, attempts to accept his fate by allowing scavengers to kill and eat him but thanks to a pterosaur literally pecking out his eye while looking at a butterfly he has the rage to go out fighting.
Reinvigorated by the bat, Patchi and his friends (actually just a bunch of dragonflies that live on his back but like him despite their intelligence) escapes and fights off the scavengers, before catching up to the herd, only to find them confronted by Gorgon and her pack once more (now its gets dark) they manage to scare most of the herd and a bunch of Pronghorn like mammals into a river which causes most to drown, during the battle between Gorgon and the ceratopsians. Scowler pushes Juniper accidentally into a hole with a spike and kills her. patchi in a fit of rage fights Scowler and has his last remaining eye gouged out but he manages to push him off a cliff that was there and while Patchi looks like he's contemplating his action when he is just standing there when Gorgon and her pack kill him, meanwhile a male approaches Gorgon and drops the head of Juniper in front of her she accepts this and leaves to mate.
It then cuts to the survivors who are building up their nest and thanks to their rerouted migration which saves them and their kind from extinction from the Pronghorns. Gorgon's pack have to move away and the lovely gory ecosystem collapses a few million years after this thanks to the arrival of Brutodon which out compete the definitely not sauropod replacement mammals that look like giraffes that will become the largest creatures on earth and it ends on one of Gorgon's young evolving WWM style into the giant theropods from Nigel Marvin's adventures with the largest creatures on earth. The credits this time are of a before and after showing the area in Patchi and friends era and in Nigel marvin's adventures era showing the river area where Patchi was killed into the river area where the Brutodon laid their eggs.

2023.05.31 18:06 Loveme_ordont I/29F am pushing my partner/31m away.
TLDR; Anxiety ridden girlfriend can't support my boyfriend in his time of need and unsure of what next step to take.
I(29F) have been dating my boyfriend (31m) for about 8 months. I have a lot of past relationship trauma and have started to bring it into my current relationship. I have small triggers that set me off and have been a contributor of me starting arguments, snooping through his things, and showing up at his house unannounced. I didn't used to be like this. After years of cheating partners and ones that made me feel unwanted, I can't handle being in a healthy relationship with an amazing guy that I can trust. I am unsure of how to support my partner in hard times due to my lack of patience. I am someone who can get over things quickly and move on without stress, he is not. He likes to isolate and work through things himself, which has caused me to feel unwanted, which I realize comes from a selfish place. I haven't been understanding to him and his needs, only my own wants and desires. I have a lot that I am personally going through as well right now and I understand that. I've quit drinking which has caused a lot of extra anxiety and mental instability over the past few weeks, leading me into making not good decisions yesterday, such as, watching my boyfriend's location all day, showing up unannounced just to see him, which led to a very upsetting conversation that ended in a fight and us taking a few days apart. In this time I'm finding that I've made a lot of positive changes and have made better for my life in small ways. I was lacking on that growth for a few days and it made me insecure, leading me into a state of defense and anxiety. After our fight yesterday I can't help but notice that I have been making a lot of positive change while my boyfriend has made very few changes. He is stressed about a lot in life and as I've tried to support him, I feel frustrated. I try to make our time together happy, but I can't when I am constantly worried about him. He's told me I can't help but things have been this way for a month and I'm unsure if he is making any action to get better as well. I've looked into getting a new therapist and am actively trying to be better everyday and learn from what I have done. I'm taking the few days to sit and focus on myself and feel more connected with myself, and I can only hope he does the same. I want to suggest therapy to him, but without being abrasive.
I suppose the advice I'm looking for is how do I talk to someone that has a different coping style as myself?

2023.05.31 18:06 oligarko Future of the band
What do you think the future of the band in the next 5-15 years?
Billie has stated that the band will continue on making music unless one of them died and I guess that's enough to keep the band ongoing. But how will it work?
Sure green day is still a headliner at top festivals but until when? Festival shows are really choreographed with all the same setlist. Not too mention the band is not as popular as it was in 2010 and did not even try to match it. Also considering label changes, rising old pop punk band and the retirement of old band such as nofx, sum 41, etc. Will they go on a smaller scale/club just as rancid since 2009? If they do keep making music, how would it look? Sure Billie is a flexible songwriters but his art doenst go anywhere beyond three chords, a rockabilly or 60s nostalgic Or maybe they could pull up the beach boys? Dimmed for 20 years then appeared with Kokomo. Do they have the same stature as Kiss, Elton John, Metallica, and those 80s bands who still embarking a global tour decades after their era?
Maybe if there's any band with similar career trajectories can predict what would be the future of the band.

2023.05.31 18:06 somethingig686926 My em's girlfriend is making me feel bad for being mad
I'm so confused and I feel terrible rn. So my parents have been abusive twords me in the past in many ways. They would beat me for little to no reason most times they'd make me babysit cook clean feed ECT my lil sibling and adults along with too many dogs. And for a long time we lived in filth because I was the only one cleaning and I couldn't keep up with 6 different people living in our house. They also emotional and mentally abused me. So obviously I (transm16) would be mad at my parents especially my mother since she hasn't changed at all.
I was on the way to an interview for a job I didn't get and me and my mom's girlfriend started talking about my mother. The conversation went into my past and how I'm mad that my parents did what they did, and I'm getting a job so I won't be home all day and I can save money for myself. She started to say how I felt was weird and then said "when you get older you'll realize that parenting has no handbook and they do things that aren't good but they still love you. I remember when my step mom insert abuse here (not my place to say what she went through) and I ran from her but I still forgave my dad even though he never helped. Your mom was Ina abusive relationship with your dad which caused her to do this all. You'll see and forgive her one day"
I obviously got a bit upset because I thought she was the one person who'd actually listen to me and not say something like that to me. I just changed the subject but it still hurts. I know parenting is hard I Basically raised my siblings but I think that a good parent would make sure their childrens house was atleast not filled with dogs and trash everywhere. I'd think a parent wouldn't leave their job for the kids to do. I think a responsible parent wouldn't give their 12 year old kid a gun on their birthday even though they asked for new glasses.i think a responsible parent wouldn't spend so much money on their partners and weed Instead of making sure there was food. I think a responsible parent wouldn't make their child a therapist for themselves, and it got so bad their kid doesn't know how to help themselves and will stay Ina abusive friendship and get groomed by grown women and men just because they are offered something the parent never gave. I'd think that would be you know the basics but apparently there needs to be a handbook for this all now. I just feel so betrayed because the girlfriend was supposed to be the one person i could trust but now I don't. Since of course she went and told my mom everything I said, so now I'm shutting down again. I know on here there's people that'll give me advice and I need that right now. Do I completely shut the girlfriend off too now??
