@farmerman,
This is a funny scientific talk about dinosaurs and extinction.
It also highlights how little we often know about the fossils we find.

@parados,
That was great. Horner is still one of the great speakers about dinosaurs. Glad to see he did a TED talk. (Many of the TEDs get so damn pompous about their topics)

I like that video. It gives new to me information besides being entertaining.

@farmerman,
Your post is most intriguing and quite the reminder worth noting, thank you...
Are you aware that humanity is still in a state of reversed comprehension pertaining to emotional concerns with regards evolutionary theory and extinction?.. No need to answer, thought I might just attempt to prompt your scientific interest in an idea you are aware of probably. Such is a trickier notion to navigate successfully. Though you may call it philosophical I suppose, I find it is emotional placation.

What I hope to achieve by pointing out this fulcrum of eye widening is beyond even me, but still, there you have it.

You've either led the best of lives or the worst.

Just came across this visualisation of the major phyla? (genera?) sumpin' anyways, that shows the evolutionary branches over time - kind neat. Won't try to embed it because it pretty big.
