TEDxVancouver: Dr John “Jack” Horner – On dinosaurs being large, different and gone


“Large, different and gone” is how paleontologist, Doctor John “Jack” Horner, describes dinosaurs as he starts his talk today. The dude pretty much owns dinosaurs. He knows why children love dinosaurs, why my son own son who is not yet two years old already can’t stop talking about them. He also knows a lot more than most other paleontologists (his peers) know and you should watch his talk once it gets uploaded in case you weren’t watching the live feed. And of course, my main focus of today: his shoes. Doctor Horner wears Grey Adidas running shoes with Adiprene soles and orange stripes. Perfect for hunting dinosaurs in.
