      I think he's saying that dinos were an extremely successful set of species for a lot longer than humans have existed.

      It's kind of like how many of us have stopped using "Neanderthal" as a pejorative on DK, in recognition that the Neanderthal people were a very successful branch of the human tree. They just didn't happen to survive to the present day, for one reason or another.

        SpaceX has signaled the time for the mammalian fire-breathers.  If only anyone else would heed the call.
