Default The real Velociraptor

And beneath the skin, there's the same hip structure in a turkey and Velociraptor (as a matter of fact, that's the skeletal basis for calling an animal a dinosaur).

Oh, and though it always ends up being controversial, they got Velociraptor wrong in the movies. We have fossils demonstrating it was much smaller and covered in feathers. There were a couple dinosaurs that more or less looked like the one in the movies, but they're named Deinonychus and Utahraptor. Here's a good pic of what I mean for Deinonychus and Velociraptor:

Default Title longer than actual review

Not kidding. The title is twice as long as the actual review:

This is the title:

"good course well maintained cement pads are being installed at this time 4 in place now nice baskets chain star If memory serves me right great signs done by the elementary and middle school as was the course . nicely done great beginners course .hard to"

And no, I didn't drop part of the title; it simply ends with "hard to"

that's funny, but not all that classic... prly should have gone in bad reviews. but it is a review, unlike all this velociraptor talk

Default Math is hard

"Play it once in 15-20mins, or jog through 3-4 times in an hour."

I tend to agree, but a review is an opinion, so I am willing to give some latitude. I am more concerned about the lack of math skills. 3-4 loops jogging in an hour OR 15-20 minutes playing without jogging. The last time I checked, 15x4=60 minutes (1 hour) and 20x3=60 miunutes (1 hour).

1) Opinions can be wrong.
2) He doesn't jog any faster than he walks.

Opinion, by definition, can't be wrong. You or I might strongly disagree with them, but they are not facts.

On your second point, if you do not jog faster than you walk, you are not jogging.

Some opinions can be wrong.
If my opinion is "discs resemble squares"... it's wrong. It means I don't know what a square looks like. Or that I've failed to distinguish between their defining characteristics.

If I think a bunch of upshots is a phenomenal course, it means I don't know what a phenomenal course really is.
