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.

Food is a totally subjective thing. What has one person drooling might leave another dry-heaving just thinking about.

Having said that, some stuff is just plain ... wrong.

Secrets, we all have them. Some will be spilled over time and some will go to the grave.

Mine are going to the grave. Just in case you were waiting for a truth sharing moment, there it is.

Others often feel the need to shed their secrets. Secrets can weigh on you.

So every once in awhile people start letting loose, because it's the only way to free yourself.

That's why you get a therapist, to share the most shocking, intimate details of your life. To spill and be free.

Or... naturally, you come to Reddit.

Redditor General-Pea2016 wanted see who would be willing to spill some tea about life, they asked:

"What have you never told anyone?"

Sometimes it's time to stop the world for a few minutes, relax, and unwind. Slip into a warm bath or have a nice glass of wine on the side to really drive that comfort and relaxation home.

We work ourselves to death most days without any acknowledgment for the absolute limit to which we are pushing our bodies. With the world constantly swirling around us as this happens, it can feel a little like there is no respite.

That's why we need to learn things that really comfort us. About the world, about other people, whatever. We need some comfort to take so that we can bring some stillness into our crazy world.

Everyone has an opinion and apparently that opinion is golden advice. (Two different things)

You can give opinions, but know what you're saying and sharing.

Advice is more... heavy. It's definitive.

So beware and take "advice" with a grain of salt.

Redditor PsychedelicAirFusion wanted to hear about the times other people should've just stayed quiet with their opinions, by asking:

"What's the worst advice you have received?"
