Well, if the Natural History Museum classes the Isle of Wight as the UK's dinosaur capital (see, for example, http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/dinosaurs/9799897/Isle-of-Wight-is-dinosaur-capital-of-Britain.html ) and the UK is where dinosaurs come from, then yes, it follows that all dinosaurs are descended from the Isle of Wight. smiley - silly

I note in passing that 'floating bridge' is an anagram of Inbred Float Gig.

Are they still open to suggestions? smiley - smiley

If you help locate the predicted 9th planet, you might get to name it, but they've already ruled out "Planet McPlanetface".


They ought to name it Rupert, of course. smiley - towel

There may well be something like that out there in the Kuiper belt, Earth sized or larger.

I'd thought it was going to be called 'Proserpina'...

Oh!

But Pluto was demoted.

I suppose one could call it 'Little Orphan Annie'.smiley - shrug

You can call me TC

Who was it said, in a story about the 9th (10th at the time?) planet - "I think I'll call this one Donald Duck".

Does the name Aloysius Barley ring a bell with anyone? Was it him?

Some are suggesting it may have drifted into the Solar system from elsewhere.

Hasn't been found yet, though a search is being mounted and amateurs enlisted to support the search.
