fta Of the 70 species known to have lived there before the Younger Dryas, 68 were found there afterward. The two that didn't make it were the giant beaver and the flat-headed peccary, a sharp-toothed pig the size of a black bear.

Tasty, tasty bearpig.

Man, that's some good bearpig. I think it would go well with some cereal.

Wait, I'm confused. I was assured back in school that because a single spear point had been found inside the preserved remains of a mammoth, that the mammoths were wiped out by mean humans who had lost the ability to communicate with Mother Gaia, or something.

FTFA: "Imagine living in a time when you look outside and there are elephants walking around in Cincinnati," Tankersley says. "But by the time you're at the end of your years, there are no more elephants. It happens within your lifetime."

Or just think about the last time you saw a honey bee.

Yeah right.  We all know the Earth is only 6,000 years old.

Didn't they blame mammoth extinction on human hunting just last month?

Have the dim's found a way to blame the "mammoth climate change" on Haliburton and bush yet?

Huh?  I see them daily.  Every once in a while, I even get honey from them.  Awesome, tasty honey.

I thought it was pretty well accepted that arrival of humans across the bering land bridge was what brought low the north american megafauna.

Not to put too fine a (Clovis?) point on this, but (coughs nervously) I believe that members of the genus in the Lower 48 are classified as Mastodons, rather than Mammoths.

/would have been too warm for those big hairy things to make it as far south as Florida

//not such an adaptive challenge for humanoids, now

Yeah, well it could have been worse.  GG just went back 12,000 years.

Brian Blessed went back 65 million years.   That K-T boundary thing?  Little known fact: BB's testicles are meteoric in origin, and therefore his, um, emissions are rich in iridium.

I visited a cousin last week who allowed me to touch his collection of flint arrowheads and spear points. It was humbling to hold in my hands items that were created thousands of years before the era of classical Rome.

This may account (in part, at least), for why we have Bigfoot sightings here
