Animated dinosaur cursors?

Don't knock animated dinosaur cursors... I used to work for a company in the 90's, PC-Kwik, that sold a package of cursors, including dinosaur ones. Granted, it wasn't our main product, just something for the sales people to upsell for a few dollars more once they had customers on the phone.

Yikes! We ran into that by accident yesterday... The terminal point of the march was right by the north-most exit from the High Line park at 34th Street that just opened yesterday, too, which I wanted to check out.

It was insane! And we had to walk a few blocks opposite the direction of the march to get home... I thought we'd get trampled before we found a cross street (41st Street) that wasn't so jam packed we could get off the main route.

Being short, I didn't get many good photos from it as most of them are of peoples' backs that I couldn't see over.

This is certainly not news for nerds. But seems it is news for non-nerds

Well, it gets a bit nerdier if you figure this is much like Wesley Crusher's psych test to get into Star Fleet Academy... He had to go into a room with two "victims" and rescue one so they could make sure he wouldn't freeze and fail to rescue anyone.

And that is "stuff that matter"

Well, that's a bit harder to argue with...
