Daily Diversion: T-Rex Tries Things, Fails

All hail the mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex! King of the carnivores! Scourge of the Cretaceous Period! Towering, terrifying, and, yet... such small arms.

Artist Hugh Murphy has done the detective work on his hilarious Tumblr, T-Rex Trying, and found out that, yes, the dinosaur would have some serious difficulties skiing, stealing candy from vending machines, and painting his house. Honestly, we're staring to feel bad for ol' Rexie – as if extinction weren't bad enough. (T-Rex Trying...)
