I'm puzzled by the comment "Jim keeps the light still until the Hunter takes the shot, and then, hit or miss, 'ol Jim moves the light behind another creature that should not be! "
What does that mean - the player picks a target that should not be hit? I don't see the sense in that.
Well of course! You're reading it without the italics!
Bill and Matt are each right, both in the sense that each "rightfully extinct" creature needs to be dead by our powerful hands and because such creatures have no business existing alongside man. One theme encountered often in material covering "men meet dinosaurs" is man's continued sense of "world dominence/lack-of-awe-before-nature" attitude, despite being in the presense of ancient lifeforms which clearly outclass him physically. I remember seeing a movie called "The Last Dinosaur" about some digging machine that stumbles upon a hidden valley where there happens to be dinosaurs and one of them happens to be a T-Rex. The millionaire "leader" of the expedition is a hunter and decides that "that thing is the last!" and of course, that means he needs to be the only person in the world to ever kill a T-Rex. I don't remember, but I'm sure it ends badly for him.
I can easily imagine a group of fictional human characters who may accidentally travel back in time, and, once back there, would be so arrogant as to fail to recognize that they themselves are the intruders and instead think all of the prehistoric freaks as "wrong" in some way. After a few beers, they're suddenly acting like jackasses and killing things, probably intending to post the video of it on YouTube when they get back to the future.
The whole premise of Prehistoric Safari. "wouldn't it be swell to travel back in time and kill dinosaurs?", strikes me as pretty funny. If it were a matter of our survival, sure, but on safari? Just for the hell of it? I mean, look at the overlay. There's a herbivore in the lake feeding its young and it's got a target on it! I laugh out loud just thinking about it.
The phrase "should not be" is a direct lift from a Simpson's episode where a parrot with octopus legs, aware that he is an abomination of nature, squawks "I should not be! I should not be!"
