I first heard these over fifty years ago and they are just as wonderful now as they were then. Even more so, because they bring back a simpler time, before computers, before cell phones, even before Kindles. This is a great collection of Bradbury's gems and I'm going to savor every one of them. Then raise a glass to Mr Arthur Trinks who instilled a love of reading on some very impressionable youngsters.

Verse 1: We can go back in time all just for ten grand, Reptiles scare, their really rare, Eckels by the way, Chorus: Stupid… Stupid… Bring me down… Yes it can Bring me down Daniel In the debate of how the dinosaurs met their demise, there are many theories defended by many different groups of people. Some say the dinosaurs doom was speedy due to extra terrestrial forces such as meteorites, while others say that their extinction was an earthly and gradual process, taking millions of years for volcanoes and earthquakes to wipe them out.
Finally, another group of theorists decided upon the third and most widely accepted theory that climate change caused acid rain, poisonous gas emissions, extreme cooling similar to a nuclear winter and eventually a greenhouse effect causing temperature extremities and reduced sunlight.
There is evidence pointing towards each of these theories so currently it is impossible to know for sure which is factual, however the third is the most accepted theory as it has the most evidence pointing towards it. There are thin layers of clay deep in the earth with an unusually high level of iridium. Iridium is a rare substance similar to platinum. This is considered solid evidence for the gas emissions and dust clouds included in the third theory. The other two theories have solid evidence as well such as dug up meteorites and traces of volcanic and seismic activity.
But their evidence is not as solid as the third theory's making it the most accepted by the world. I believe that the third theory is the most correct one as it is currently the most widely accepted around the world.
However I also believe that the other two theories may have some correct ideas as well. This causes me to think that all three may have occurred, all leading towards the dinosaurs eventual extinction. Reuben Positive 1. He has good self belief and confidence.
He is quite an active person he has done a lot of hunting. He has good communicative skills, and is able to talk to others with ease. He is polite and has a nice attitude. He is enthusiastic about hunting. Negative 1. He is sometimes not receptive to instructions. He is not brave during the safari and lets his fear for the dinosaur overwhelm him. He is sometimes hesitant in the face of danger. He is sometimes not logical and makes bad decisions as a result. He is sometimes too independent and does things that anger the safari guides.
Propose reasons why the antagonist behaves badly, and explain why people in real life might behave in a similar way.
