Its image is one of a fierce predator who towered over most others, baring dozens of jagged, bone-crushing teeth.

But new research out of Toronto seeks to challenge depictions of the Tyrannosaurus rex, suggesting that its fearsome incisors might have been hidden behind a pair of lips.

“In popular culture, we imagine dinosaurs as more ferocious-looking, but that is not the case,” said Robert Reisz of the University of Toronto. In research presented Friday at a conference of the Canadian Society of Vertebrate Paleontology, he takes aim at the fanged portrayal of the T rex, suggesting its teeth did not stick out when its mouth was closed.

    Subject: Sign the petition! Senators: Stop Congress’ Internet slow lane bill

    Body:

    Friend,

    I signed a petition on Action Network telling Senators to Stop Congress’ Internet slow lane bill.

    Remember the work we did last year to prevent telecoms from building an Internet slow lane?[1]

    A new bill[3] could sabotage our historic net neutrality win, which would put your favorite websites in a slow lane behind media giants that are able to pay big bucks.

    And the kicker? Your Internet bill may even go up. The bill will strip away the FCC’s customer protection powers to advocate on behalf of you.

    If we don’t speak up now, we’ll be left with companies price-gouging us for a two-tiered Internet service! Speak out now and demand the Senate reject this bill before it’s too late.

    Diane and I are in here, her at her laptop, me on my PC. My gigs ran out and won’t renew until May 28, speed slowed down and two of us using the bandwidth. Pain in the butt. I left Facebook so she could be on is, I have other things I can do, like come here. I also can read my two newspapers, and I have lots of other things I do on my two computers that are not related to being on the internet.
