The Lord Geekington, Age 8

In lieu of a Christmas card this year, I figured that I'd draw up some historical documents relating to the Lord Geekington. It appears that between January 30 and February 26, 1995, I had a little industry of typing up incoherent dinosaur facts and yarns illustrated with crayon. For some reason my scanner reads crayon oddly - select colors shift in the spectrum and things are far too faint - but I think the idea gets across. Click to enlarge, and enjoy!



Out of all the problematic details (198 degree temperature, 50 mile wide river), the folding Stegosaurus plates hurt the most.


One of my first hobbies was listing animal sizes.


Sadly, my theory that Deinocheirus was 350 feet long never did catch on.


Amazing what you can do in a computer game with only one big, red button.


That's supposed to be a blue river and orange sun. How then, I ask, is the yellow and red represented accurately? Stupid scanner...


No story is complete without an equally long listing of "facts".

A fifty-mile wide river is not impossible to contemplate, although granted that it is very unlikely. As the story itself said, it was a coastal river mouth, and as such perhaps a delta. If the entirety of the delta were included in the measurement, and it was prehistoric geologic formation...

When I was seven or so, I dreamed up sauropods that were kilometers long. I assume I hadn't yet heard of the square-cube law ...

Yet. Your time will come.

I dreamed up a *sessile* superultramegasauropod hundreds of metres long. It had an anus near the end of its tail, and very slowly rotated on the spot, fertilising patches of ground with its faeces and months or years later eating the resulting plants. That was probably while under the influence of Dougal Dixon, though...

I find it important to let the batter sit at room temperature a few minutes, so it is not so cold when it hits the waffle iron). Also try the Carrot Nutritive Day Creme or Night Creme because it contains beta-carotene, the product is very sweet-smelling however so take note if you do have a sensitive nose.document automation
