This is the most nerdy question I've ever asked.
Do you know what the spikes on the end of a Stegosaurus' tail are called?
I didn't - until today.
My friends, I present to you - The Thagomizer.
Sure, Calvin & Hobbes piss on Ford logos on the back of a hillbilly's truck, but Gary Larson gets referenced by the Smithsonian Institution.
That's nerd-cred to the 1000th power.
