Somehow, probably by accident or just plain ol' lousy
typing skills, you've landed on the Preview Page for The Center for Cretaceous Studies.
That's ok, we all make misteaks.
You're here now - ya might as well see what this is all about....
The Center for Cretaceous Studies is a fictional "business"**.
**NOTE: this page constitutes the ONLY time you will be informed of such fictitious behavior.
Once you leave this page you're on your own, buddy.
Whaaa? Who'da ever thunk that?
A LITTLE BACKGROUND INFORMATION
This is an institution researching live dinosaurs. Now, if you actually believe there are live, 40-foot
dinosaurs running around on the Earth today, please seek professional counseling as soon as you finish visiting our sites.
A few years ago (2006) LotsaSites.com, a website which lists and critiques other websites, posted their findings on The Center
for Cretaceous Studies as "Jurassic Park" meets "The Office" in this tongue-in-cheek look at what would
have happened if Michael Crichton's vision was actually undertaken by morons.
The C4CS website was also named Tripod "Site Of The Month"
in landslide voting by Tripod members.
How bad can it get? Even our 'friends' over at Art Evolved had this to say (and we didn't even have to ask them!):
"overall most of this "art" [is] in fact stills from movies and TV shows or photographs of dinosaur statues
(badly) photoshopped into other photographs..." OW! Hey, what d'ya want, Mona Lisa?? This is paleo-humor
- NOT paleo-art... and it's not even good paleo-humor. In fact, it's barely paleo-humor at all.
HELPFUL SUGGESTIONS TO BETTER UNDERSTAND THIS WEIRD WEB SITE
It would be just grand if you are familiar with or somewhat knowledgeable in the Jurassic Park franchise of books and movies
and also current events, particularly current events as they relate to the United States of America.
THE POP-UP ADS AND HYPERTEXT CRAP:
Ugh. Unfortunately this is something
we have no control over. This Tripod site is free and the pop-ups and hypertext linking to advertisements are just
a way for Tripod to offer a free website. We do not make ANY money from these and apologize for their intrusion into
your reading/viewing pleasure. We too, are not amused.
TIME OUT FOR A LITTLE BRAGGING...
The Center for Cretaceous Studies site is linked to several real dinosaur-related websites [see 'LINKS' in the navigation
bar when you get there], and more than a handful of real paleontologists have visited. We're kind of proud about that.
It's not like they actually learned anything while they were here, but hey, this ain't some website working off a grant
from the National Science Foundation.
Also, a tell-all, behind the scenes book about The Center has been written, with details to appear soon on Kickstarter.
OK. LESS BRAGGING:

Makes a great gift that keeps on giving - and it's FREE!
Oh yeah... and Thank YOU for visiting!
