Brian Switek, from Laelaps, could probably tell you.

And, if you vote for him in the 3rd Annual College Blogger Scholarship competition, he just might.

He’ll tell you why should you vote for him, too, and I agree.

And below the fold, is an inspirational cartoon.

From xkcd.

    It’s the velocirapture I’m worried about! But I try not to get carried away with it.

    Mass of each raptor please. If the mass is high enough, rounding corners could prove a tad difficult for the beasties.

    Friends in AK tell me that to escape a charging moose, go around a sharp corner as the moose cannot do it and will keep going with it’s inertia. They could be telling me “tales for the lower 48” but accelerating mass around a corner isn’t free.

    Cool test though.
