Look at this here comic

I went to the natural history museum in New York and one of the information signs they had in front of their T. Rex pointed out that T. Rexes had longer arms than us. I think the implication was to stop bagging on ol' T. Rex, but it did not say that explicitly on the sign.

Anyway, reading today's comic just made me think of that and want to share it.

I would interpret that as a statement about how big t. rex was in general, not that its arms weren't small for its body. It's more like "Man, t. rex was so huge that even its tiny arms were longer than us!"

Also, by "us" do you mean our arms or our whole bodies?
Ask the next question.

I forgot and had to look it up.

T. Rex arms were about three feet, about one meter long. Shorter than us, longer than our own PUNY arms.

Maybe this comic can answer your question?

There's something unintentionally ironic about this comic. As this article points out, during sex is one of the few times that paleontologists think Tyrannosaurus probably did use its arms.

This article is fantastic not just in terms of being informative and interesting, but heck if this

the forelimbs likely served dual purposes for eating and loving


isn't extremely inspirational.
