Fishy fish labels fouled fairly.

I don’t have any real problem with trying to clone or recreate extinct species, and the mammoth is undoubtedly a better choice than the dinosaur, but I do wonder how much of modern plantlife a species that has been gone a few thousand years would eat.

One of my current issues with the genres heroes and heroines is we seem to be stuck in a pattern of luck and having the right opinions leading to success. Some of the most loved characters in entertainment over the last couple millennium have been the smart, savvy and innovate type.
