An asteroid or huge chunk of ice slammed into Earth about 35 million years ago, splashing into the Early Cretaceous North Atlantic.

35 million years ago was NOT early Cretaceous.

That's nothing. I found an entire ocean that is 4 billion years old.

"What they didn't know was that they also awakened...."

Oh, like you farkers would know!  You act like there's this giant collection of information right at your fingertips where you could "fact-check" an article while "editing" it, or possibly before "posting it to your website."  I think the Washington Post would know about this if it existed, so I will blindly follow the articles inference that the Cretaceous period was in its early stages 35 million years ago, and thus is still going strong.  Uh oh, gotta run.  That darned acrocanthosaurus is into the chicken coop again!
