If I knew you could actually do this

…I’d have done it myself years ago.  An actual news item out of Nebraska:

YORK – What’s in a name? In this case, a few unusual words for one York man who has legally changed his name to Tyrannosaurus Rex.

The term, which in Greek means “tyrant lizard king,” is the name assigned to a large dinosaur. Now, it’s also the title officially adopted by Tyler Gold, 23.

Gold appeared in York County District Court Monday morning, before Judge Alan Gless who heard the unusual request.

Has nothing to do with history, I know, but I couldn’t let that one pass.

By the way, if you got a weird login request while visiting the blog today, it’s because I screwed something up while uploading the images for the post on the National Geographic article.  Sorry about that.  It should be fixed now.
