Yep, Sue is actually the most expensive dinosaur fossil ever sold. I'll need to stop by sometime when I'm in Chicago.

What you'll see is a partly replica (particularly the skull), but it's glorious.

It's truly a nice, nice dinosaur to look at and it's a centerpiece of the museum. The actual skull is on a walkway above and off to the side of the skeleton and can be looked at in detail.

My old profile picture was of me next to Sue. I kept it for years due to the Dresden connection, but I don't think anyone called me on it.
I survived the Permian and all I got was this t-shirt.

Sue is presently my screen background. Saw her in Chicago this summer. Totally worthwhile.
...Her part anyways... The rest of the museum is ok.

CHASE: (quietly) I dunno pups... he seems to be bidding us to hurt a bunch of people.
MARSHALL: So? I mauled Mayor Humdinger's face and set him on fire that one time and he was totally fine the next week.
CHASE: Good point. (louder) OK pups, Paw Patrol is on a roll!
PUST: WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN???

Rather disappointed to see that no one in that article mentioned the Dresden connection. Now if only more people read more Dresden, especailly paleontologists, I am sure they would go around finding way more dinosaur fossils and the world would be a brighter, happier place.

On a side note, its nice to see a Dresden thread that doesn't complain about the books so much.
