Because evolution turned dinosaurs into dinner.

Mine's a combination of my Western ( Pisces) and Chinese ( Snake) starsigns. I've used it for years. It reminds me of my favourite tropical fish, too - the kuhlie loach.

Speaking of dinosaurs, I'd love to see this exhibit. If it comes to Australia, I'm there

And I'm on the chickenosaurus waiting list.

RE: How did you choose/invent your user name?
Back around 1999, when I was suffering from a relapse of woowoo-itis (initially got it in my early teens, then a very bad case of it in 1977-79), I was collecting interesting rocks and crystals and starting to explore Old Norse culture. One day on a break at work I was playing with a piece of quartz and pondering Oðinn, and in my imagination I heard the name (pronounced "astreya").

I gave the name a quasi-Icelandic spelling (j=y), and subsequently noticed it sounded a bit like Ostara, the name of the Nordic/Germanic spring goddess. Realizing that nothing much had been heard from Ostara in quite some time, I applied for the job of Goddess of the Vernal Equinox (but only in the Northern Hemisphere) and later added chocolate, punctuation, and Random Equipment Malfunctions to my resumé. So now you know whose name to take in vain the next time your car won't start. Angel

I'm sorry, but your beliefs are much too silly to take seriously. Got anything else we can discuss?

If I did that I would have the username "virgin goat/sheep" it definitely doesn't have the same ring about it.

I'd be the "Scorpion Rat". Which doesn't sound too bad actually.

Anyway... "Un-Sapien" = "Un-Wise"

...

On that basis, being born on the cusp (depending on which wizened old Chinese crone is trying to enlighten me) I could be an Ice Dragon or a Wet Rabbit.

Which sounds more cool?

I adopted an ex racing greyhound named Holland Popeye.

I am (or was since Pops is gone now) Popeye's Pappy.

Save a life. Adopt a greyhound.
