Billionaire Finally Attempting IRL Jurassic Park

Correct me if I’m wrong, but the movie Jurassic Park was just a movie about a family having a fun day at a dinosaur theme park, right? It was nice because you didn’t really have any anxiety while you watched it and it was just like, ugh, finally I can just ENJOY MYSELF at a movie? Right? Just a fun romp, encouraging man’s never-ending quest for control over nature? Perfect, I thought so. With that in mind, an Australian billionaire is trying to create his own Jurassic Park! Using dino DNA! From Sunshine Coast Daily:

THE suggestion would be considered unbelievable – if it involved anyone other than Clive Palmer.

The controversial billionaire is rumoured to be planning to clone a dinosaur from DNA so he can set it free in a Jurassic Park-style area at his new Palmer Resort in Coolum.

Mr Palmer has, apparently, been in deep discussion with the people who successfully cloned Dolly the sheep to bring his dinosaur vision to life.

If Mr Palmer can resurrect the Titanic, what is to stop him from trying with another of his other alleged passions – dinosaurs?

The Titanic thing the clip mentions at the end is referring to how Clive Palmer, sane billionaire, is also BUILDING A TITANIC II. Hahaha. My goodness. What a perfect man with only the best ideas. I love you, Clive Palmer! “Also I’m going to attempt to matter transport myself with a fly and see what happens.” “Also I’m going to become winter caretaker at the Overlook II.” “Also I’m going to try to mend my relationship with LC even though Spencer has told me not to, again and again.” “Also I think Georgina has really changed.” All classic Clive Palmer quotes, I bet.
