Steven Spielberg's 1993 masterpiece Jurassic Park
offered a few helpful tips in relation to dinosaurs: If you don't move, Tyrannosaurus Rex can't see you, if you have to pee in an emergency scenario just hold it in, and build your storage cabinets with a mirrored, reflective surface in case velociraptors raid your kitchen. Hopefully you won't have to take any of these into consideration, but you've been warned.
