Australian Billionaire Orders 117 Animatronic Dinosaurs For Jurassic Park-Style Resort

With so many very rich people in the world, why has it taken so long for someone to do this? Via the Australian:

Clive Palmer is a giant step closer to creating his own Jurassic Park after the eccentric billionaire put in an order for more than 100 mechanical dinosaurs.

The mining magnate, who is also building a replica Titanic, already has a tyrannosaurus rex called Jeff and an omeisaurus named Bones in his Palmer Coolum Resort on the Sunshine Coast, north of Brisbane.

Mr. Palmer said today he had ordered another 117 animatronic dinosaurs for the resort from central China. He said the new arrivals would include a 1200kg brachiosaurus and a 7m tall mamenchisaurus – both tall plant-eating reptiles.

The animals, which will be displayed in the woodlands around the resort, will sway their tails, heave their chests and blink, Mr. Palmer said.

    We’re gonna need more wall to put these rich fuckers up against.

    “That(Palmer) is one big pile of shit.” Let the Jurassic Park quote-a-thon begin!

    I would be in favor for Sumptuary laws that billionaires cannot own more than 4 animatronic dinosaurs. Any further purchases must be offset with equal endowments for actual research programs.

      Why do you hate job creators and freedom?

      • Calypso_1 | Apr 2, 2013 at 12:49 pm |

        Freedom always has degrees of motion.

        The presence or absence of hatred within myself is not applicable to such a scenario and the creation of jobs in my proposal is commensurate to & arguably more productive than that of consumer-tourist based model for selling overpriced concessions & toy dinos to snot nosed brats.

    Mining magnate: An exploiter of planetary resources for personal monetary gain.

    One day he will be the animatronic in a museum of ancient history speaking to children about the era of pointless accumulation of wealth and mass unbridled exploitation of every resource on planet earth.

    Better yet as he is quite tacky – pose him in the Ripley’s believe it or not museum in Branson Missouri.

    Life…uh….finds a way.

      Oh, what’s so great about discovery? It’s a violent, penetrative act that scars what it explores. What you call discovery, I call the rape of the natural world.

    Wouldn’t it be AWESOME if someone could reprogram these animatronic dinosaurs to gobble up Disney’s Hall of Presidents?

    Ah but will the theropods have feathers?

    • Calypso_1 | Apr 3, 2013 at 1:12 pm |

      i’ll pluck some chickens if you bring the tar.

      • Daenerys_Targaryen | Apr 3, 2013 at 2:34 pm |

        Are you callin’ me a chicken fuckin’ motherfucker?

        • Calypso_1 | Apr 3, 2013 at 7:29 pm |

          Wouldn’t you need a strap-on for that? Tar seems a tad messy too. I’ll bring lard instead.

            Yea and I’ll cut off its head to get some good spasms.

          • Calypso_1 | Apr 4, 2013 at 12:43 pm |

            Beautiful, it can be so awkward w/the squeamish sort.
            I’ll take a Turkish Sultan for the Lady & two Shamo’s for the post-decapites cockboxing.

    • Calypso_1 | Apr 6, 2013 at 8:30 pm |

      You’re not thinking big enough my boy! Dinosaurs that eat the poor, now there’s a capital idea.
