Can dinosaurs still be badass with feathers?

This week on the io9 show, we debate whether you can still be scared of dinosaurs now that we believe they were covered with proto-feathers or "dino-fuzz." And we talk about all the other ways that science has shattered our science fiction dreams, including telling us that ray guns and blasters could never work. Plus, we light things on fire — and teach you how to make smoke by rubbing your fingers together.

I still think that dinosaurs with feathers are badass. Especially spiny proto-feathers. Like giant porcupines!
