Was it Taco Bell or Chipotle? Either way, I bet beans were involved!

It was the cabbage rolls from the Terre Haute Federal Pen, wasn't it?

This pic is all sorts of farked up.  If something was going kablewy, the animals would NOT be laying down on the grass (unless they're already dead) or grazing.  They'd be running away from the big noise as fast as they could.  WTF!

confirms several super-eruptions in eastern Australia could have helped expedite the climate change all those millions of years ago.

Australia: In the killing business for 252 million years.

How convenient that about the only place on Earth that still has rocks that old, is EXACTLY the place where the event occurred >.>

Now tell me what caused the super-eruptions.  Was the crust too good at holding heat in, and it built up until the system failed?  Is whatever happened useful as a predictive tool, or has the Earth changed enough in the last 250 million years that the lessons no longer apply?

These are the kinds of questions the statements in that article immediately inspire in me, but apparently not in the writer.

Science is about fun facts and pictures, man.  Asking questions is for boring loser dorks.
