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.

When we go to sleep, we slip into one of the most vulnerable positions we can possibly embody. And we do that every single day.

For those people lucky enough to have disposable income, it can be stunning how easily we let it slip away.

You've probably stayed up late watching some television special about a criminal in your area and seen the announcement near the end: "If you have any information, call our tipline." The authorities might even offer a reward of some kind. But what are the chances that you might actually know of the person they're looking for?

People shared their stories after Redditor Renzot56 asked the online community,

"Has anyone here ever actually called into one of the FBI rewards for information on criminals and won the money?"

Often, high school is where students become rebellious. They're learning about themselves, they're testing boundaries, and they realizing that they can break the rules and sometimes get away with it.

Sometimes they're doing it to mess with a teacher who's treating students unfairly, sometimes they're doing it because they're standing up for the very little autonomy we afford kids in the first place.

Redditor CloudWoww wanted to know about those moments that are unforgettable defiance of authority.
