Well, it appears to be fixed now, but luckily I saved a copy at http://web.mit.edu/adamrose/www/fox_news_images_root.html.

And I have fewer than 10 posts, yes. Long-time reader, (less than 10)th time poster. =)

My friends on the X-strike forums were talking about this awhile ago. SO messed up! How teh heil can the do that?! They should have ended the article saying something about how they worry the impact this scientific disocovery may have on human adolsents, who may begin to believe that if it was good enough for dinosaurs, it's good enough for them.

lead researcher Gregory Erickson a Florida State University paleobiologist and AMNH research associate wrote: Sawing open perfectly good dinosaur bones is generally a no-no.
LOVE IT!

All in all there's nothing wrong with the article itself (aside from bad writing) just the "eye catching" gah-bage. Dinosaurs should generally be enough for people to pay attention without making it "thunder lizards gone wild!"

since the other link has ceased to work, this one takes you straight to the article. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,289963,00.html
