As the article suggests, don't worry, these have been extinct for hundreds of millions of years.

I heard this on NPR this morning. I'd put a saddle on one and ride it into battle.

Thought the US Military was already riding Scorpions into battle?!

Suggests?  SUGGESTS?!

I want iron-clad assurances these things are dead, dead, dead.  Curse you Guardian and your ambiguous reporting!  Either I hear confirmation they're extinct or I'm buying an elephant gun tomorrow.

I don't think an elephant gun will do it - you're going to need more firepower than that. These things were also marine creatures, so think in terms of nuclear submarines and torpedoes.

THAT is what I need for driving around Seoul! I'm sure it would stop all those buggers from cutting me off! ;)

You don't drive in Seoul, do you Renegade? I lived there for four years and there is no way in H-E- double hockey sticks I was ever going to get behind the wheel (being a manly man I let my wife do all the driving!). I figured that if I did it would not be long before I wound up on the wrong side of the law, with blood on my hands. Crazy!
