So we have Thag , with the spear, firing from the grassy knoll, while Climate change was acting as overwatch, and then a meteor Strike just for insurance waiting in the book depository. Now watch as the mammoth collapses, his tusks go back and to the left, back, and to the left

This reminds me of an old Discovery Channel special, "What Killed The Mega-Beasts?", where they talked about North America, South America, Madagascar, and New Zealand's loss of mega-fauna with the three "competing" theories of Kill (humans did it), Chill (climate change), and Ill (pandemics). Throughout the whole thing, it was "This way and only this way did it" and "I think the affect of this one way was total" and so on. Humans alone killed all of North America and New Zealand's mega-beasts, climate change alone killed Madagascar's, disease alone killed South America's.

At the very end, like the last five minutes, they tentatively floated the idea that it might have been a combination of the three: climate change struck a blow, then along came humans who hunted and brought new diseases with them. It's like the most logical explanation was the one they had the hardest time believing, even though we see it happening today.

The only one they got right was New Zealand, the Polynesians really did eat every last moa on the islands.

Please sir, I want some moa?

Some moa! Some moa! SAMOA??! Hey that's kind of got a nice ring to it. The littleungrateful shiate may be onto something we've finally got a name. And to think we were almost going to go with The Independent Island of Thin Mints.

Nice save kid. Give that brat a delicious giant flightless bird and some parting gifts!
