    He has been married and divorced four times.
    He said, 'I want to be the Bob De Niro of the Jurassic.... If I am studying Camptosaurus, I want to feel like Camptosaurus.'
    His beard resembles a tumbleweed.
    Many of his 'heresies' became part of mainstream paleontology.
    He expresses his theories in plain English, commenting 'I am really against jargon - absolutely against. It's often a smokescreen for sloppy thinking.'
    He is a Pentecostal Christian who enthusiastically embraces evolution.
    He said, 'I want to find a voracious, small-minded predator and name it after the IRS.'
