    Talking Dinosaurs

    Scientists have shown that the moon is moving away at a tiny, although measurable distance from the earth every year. If you do the math, you can calculate that 85 million years ago the moon was orbiting the earth at a distance of about 35 feet from the earth's surface.

    This would explain the death of the dinosaurs. The tallest ones, anyway.

    Doesn't dispute the assertion that the Moon wiped out the dinosaurs, but it is still interesting. I'm still looking, though... I think this will drive me mad(der) if I don't figure it out....
