Dinosaur life

We could all learn something from this pathetic killing machine.

Life should be an adventure. A journey where we are constantly discovering new things about ourselves—and the world around us. 

Instead, most of us choose safety. We take jobs we can barely tolerate in order to surround ourselves with comfort when what our souls need is challenge. “The mass of men,” Thoreau points out, “lead lives of quiet desperation” 

And, apparently, so does this Tyrannosaurus Rex.

These images, originally created for a calendar by a someone who goes by mukumushi on imgur, show us that even if you are one of the most fearsome predators to ever walk the earth, you still have to get your work done like everyone else.

Your only consolation is your family, but do they really appreciate the sacrifices you’ve made for them, or are they too busy with their own lives?

If they actually cared, would they keep getting you a tie every year for Christmas? Don’t they know how hard it is for you to get those things over your head?

You realize the beer you used to drink for fun in college has now become a medicine you need, but does it really matter at this point? Does anything?

If your plane were to crash into the ocean, who would truly mourn? 

But don’t be sad, sweet T-Rex. Remember the most interesting lives are often the shortest. Besides, who saved the McClusky account last year? Who tells the best jokes in the breakroom? Who always forwards the most interesting Game of Thrones theories? That’s right, it’s you! Now buckup big guy—you’ve got a meeting to get to.
