We all know and love Jurassic Park. Chances are some of ya'll even dreamed of having your very own dinosaur, despite the whole killing and eating the entire cast thing.


Jerry Adams, of Cwmbran, Wales, brought this dream to life when he purchased a giant dinosaur prop at a charity auction. It's 15 feet high and has been installed outside his home.

Take a look at this. We're living in 2019 and Jerry here is living in 3019.

Adams purchased the dinosaur for £1,600 at an auction by the The National Showcaves Centre for Wales. It was later transported around 50 miles from Swansea, Wales, to its new home.

What a sight:

It definitely got people talking, that's for sure:



It's clear the dinosaur brings Adams a lot of joy:

It arrived yesterday and people were still taking photos with it at 11pm. I just thought it was a brilliant idea to raise money for the charity. I've got 12 grandchildren - two with autism and one with Asperger's - and when the dinosaur arrived they spent ages rubbing their hands over it and just feeling what it was like.

I'm not the wealthiest person but I wanted to help the charity and the main thing was getting it for the grandchildren. Lots of people go walking in the area and it's lovely speaking to people about it as they pass by on their walk.

The children are thinking of calling it Alan the Allosaurus.

And people are showing up to take pictures of the dinosaur, too.



Some people aren't surprised that the dinosaur is where it is, either:

And some are just confused:

Let people enjoy things. Giant things, like the massive Pokemon cushion a guy (drunkenly) bought himself, are the best things in the world!

It looks like this dinosaur is going to keep the neighbors and their children smiling for some time to come.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
