So today I went in for an interview for a volunteer position at the Morrison Natural History Museum (you should check it out, it's pretty cool!). I went in, and I met Robert Bakker. He is pretty much like the Michael Phelps of paleontology. He is really, really cool. He and John Ostrom were pretty much the catalysts of the so-called "Dinosaur Renaissance," where the ideas of dinosaurs being cold-blooded, sluggish, stupid and slow were turned on their heads. So that was pretty exciting. Below is the link to his page on Wikipedia. Very exciting stuff!
We will get back to the polar bears later in the day, but I had to talk about this first!
