Roy Chapman Andrews and Kaiju suits

When I was a child, I read a book about dinosaurs that had this interesting paleontologist that went to Mongolia and brought back many fossil treasures. He was an adventurer, Indiana Jones before Indian Jones, and he made me want to be a paleontologist for a while, until I figured out that it looks pretty hot in Mongolia. The guy always seemed to have a fossil in one hand and a gun in the other:

Then I got a little older and around fifth grade thought it would be even cooler to be one of the guys that wore the suits in Godzilla movies and got to stomp a miniature city to pieces :)

Now I'm fifty-one, and think that it must get pretty hot in those suits!
