basically you can't condone it. It is against nature and God. Once it begins it will be only moments before humans will be cloned. Can you imagine the folly in that? We are all meant to make our contribution (or lack of it) to society in our way, in our time.
Laura Dern kept me alert during the movie. There weren't any mammoths. Mammoths first appeared about 150,000 years ago. By that time Jurassic dinos had been extinct 145 million years.
Temperature would have a problem as well. Mammoths thrived during the ice ages. Most Jurassic fauna (specifically those featured in the movie) required tropic or sub tropic climes.
I've read speculation indicating some Jurassic species might have been able to regulate body temps. If true, that might have expanded their range into colder areas. Some members of the Lamnidae family of sharks can do so. The mako and great white are examples. They can maintain body temps higher than the surrounding environment.
As to your original question, "what would it take to down a woolly mammoth", Clovis points apparently got the job done.
sissy : )
PS to Twinbirds:
I share your concerns about cloning. Ditto for lab created artificial life and artificial intelligence. Just because something CAN be done doesn't mean it SHOULD be done.
Wherever you find Mammoth bones, you WILL find Clovis projectiles. Just a fact. Ancient man relied on Mammoth like modern man relies on the auto industry and followed and hunted herds until there was no longer a viable minimal population. Once a species is at that minimum (which may be 2 animals or 5 million depending on species), extinction is inevitable.
there are worse people to clone than Nancy, Hitler, Stalin, Musselini,Bushes, etc personally not fond of Clinton and his lies either. there are others that have had a negative impact on mankind, Obama etc.
a buddy of mine was in Vietnam and while on patrol in a helicopter one day they spotted a bunch of the gooks transporting weapons on the backs of elephants.. they shot a rocket from the copter, hit the elephant in the head and the trunk went flying straight up into the air.. so.. i would a helicopter with a rocket launcher would do the trick..
I'm with Yoda on this one. Keep the hunt original, all hunters must use a pointed stick. Your choice of wood type, but no sticks over 8 feet in length. The real question is, how many pointed stick thrusts would it take?
That's funny right there Yoda...what about after the 1st one your stick with the flint head gets a foot shorter...Industry Pro's get no stick at all...just the flint...I don't want to compete, but I do want a piece of the Calcutta. Cheers-Graham.
