How did they get so badass? Was just watching the discovery channel and the big ones, apatosaurus, apparantly had a second brain to control it's rear legs and tail, that's how mind bogglingly huge these fuckers were.

Then you have raptors who, feathers or no feathers, were fearsome sons-o-bitches who wouldn't take shit from anyone. Not to mention triceratops who could gore you better than any bull, and stegosaurus, who was pretty much a natural tank.

Seriously, how did they get so badass? It's like God was getting bored with the world and decided he wanted to see a bunch of bad ass mother-fuckers fight it out for a couple hundred million years.

A real second brain or just a ganglia or nerve net that acted in a localized manner? Because humans have some reflexes that are independent of the brain and act only through the spinal cord.

They called it a second brain, but really it was of course just a highly developed cluster of nerves. However it controlled the entire rear half of the dinosaur.

And, title fixed to properly announce the badassery that is dinosaurs.

We have quite a few of those. Not really special. It may just seem special because dinosaurs would probably have a much larger proportion of their impulses generated for reflex and autonomic movements than humans, so it probably developed quite a bit more.

The point still remains that dinosaurs are badass and awesome.
