This question was stuck in my mind for a good part of the day so I thought I would share it with you. Did dinosaurs get headaches?

Very first post. I decided to that it was time to put myself out there, like many others have done before. I had been tinkering with the notion for a while. I started with uploading a handful of my paleo and nature photos to Imgur and gauging reactions. The reactions were kind and amusing. I was surprised. The internet had been such a volatile place of late. I needed a distraction from the negativity and a place to focus on my professional goals and hopefully engage with or inspire some like-minded individuals.
