So, usually I get annoyed when people start saying that people and dinosaurs lived at the same time, because it is usually people who actually believe this. However, I liked Journey to the Center of the Earth, and I LOVE this new discovery mentioned on io9:
A dinosaur and people theme park has been built in Virginia with the following premise:
In 1863 a collection of paleontologists accidentally find a valley full of living dinosaurs during their excavations. The Union gets wind of this and decides to use these dinosaurs to help fight off the Confederates. BRILLIANT!!
