57 seconds. They said, "Congratulations!" without taking into account that the smell of my crapping myself at the sight of the velociraptor would probably hasten my demise.

Yeah, I almost did that too, but I figured that would just pull him closer so he could bite my face off. Not that I did much better than you; I lasted around 20 seconds longer. I mean, there's not much you can do when a dinosaur has torn off your arms, right?

I did this for my blog yesterday and got 41 seconds. Not long enough.

I do wonder why you would be chained in a room with a veloca..whatever! I mean, it's not like he could chain us up is it??
