Talk:1249: Meteor Showers
Maybe the tennis reference is to Bob and Mike Bryan, they are twins. 22.214.171.124 09:36, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
The date for Dromaeosaurids was originally June 12, but on the page displayed at 9:44 ET, is now July 22.
Lyrids: Scream because of the similarity to "Lyrics"? 126.96.36.199 15:08, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
I don't know if it's relevant, but pyramidal cells are needed in complex object recognition and in vision-guided motor function. By closing your eyes, you're basically not using much of your pyramidal cells' capabilities. They're also one of the largest neurones, but I doubt that's relevant. 188.8.131.52 15:28, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
When it comes to the Leonids, John Lennon (I know it's a stretch), made his "bigger than Jesus" comment in '66
- Reign Of Fire first came to mind as far as dragons are concerned, but unlike the Jurassic Park T-Rex (which might be an influence, given their co-billing alongside the 'Raptor threat) I don't think they were blind to the motionless (just had bad vision at sunset?) and neither were they were notably slow (far from it!). Various zombies (non-Rage ones) are slow but surprisingly good at catching people who trip, but I don't see any obvious connection there either. Maybe there's another Monster Movie which has the same sort of thing with dragons? I had also considered Komodo Dragons, which are often filmed lumbering about, although they've got a turn of speed on them when attacking so... Anyway, my thoughts, FWIW. 184.108.40.206 23:00, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
Regarding Centaurids: You could look at a meteor shower from inside through a window. Glare or perhaps light absorbed by the glass could make it difficult or impossible to see a meteor shower unless it is bright enough.
