Ishkur: fta: The researchers concluded that no species weighing more than a pound survived.


They probably meant land animals. But to get technical, the last big coelacanth of the mesozoic was Megalocoelacanthus (I prepared the two specimens found in Kansas, and discovered a full 50% of them). It's related tot he modern coelacanth Latimera chalumnae, however Latimera, even as as a genus, most certainly wasn't around at the end of the Cretaceous.

Ah, it will be f*cking AWESOME to enjoy yet another 4 long years of neoconservatives' frustration with their powerlessness. Especially here in newly-supermajoritized California, where you c*nts will be lucky if we even let you through the checkpoints by 2016.

But don't worry, I heard they also named something after Romney. It's an emotional disease where the sufferer is obsessed with feelings of dissatisfaction due to the inability to purchase a Veyron SS and only feels they can afford a Lotus Elise. After the attack has passed, they rediscover that they are too poor even to buy a used Ford Courier pickup because they work for a rich corporate pig. It's called Mitt-understanding.

Obama already has a type of fish (Ethiostoma obama) and lichen (Caloplaca obamae) named after him, and now the recently re-elected leader of the free world can add a foot-long, slender-toothed casualty of the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction to the list.

Christ people, why not just blow the man and be done with it.
