Because instead of finishing my space opera, I'm researching my dinosaur novel (and compiling a list of agents to query for my unfinished novel because... I don't know why, really).
So apparently Jurassic Park had raptors even more wrong than I realized, because raptors didn't have much flexibility in their (coughfeatheredcough) wrists and probably could not turn them so the palms pointed downwards. They pointed inward instead, in an eternal game of charades where the answer was always "fortune teller looking into her crystal ball."
Good to know the Mesozoic always had someone ready to hold an hors d'oeuvres plate at a moment's notice.
