T-Rex: A trans-T-rexian metal, green with red flecks, in the middle of the island of stability. Used for time travel mechanisms.
T-Rex: It's so stable it has a negative half-life.
T-Rex: Thus: time travel!
Utahraptor: Neat! I look forward to its discovery.
T-Rex: It tastes like asparagus.
T-Rex: But that's the price you pay for time travel.
