Re: Dinosaur Extinction Theories

>Just how good is the Acid in the States at the moment?

   Dunno.  Never needed any.  I find that the pound-and-a-half of sugar I
ingest every day does just as good a job, if not better ... and it's not
illegal (yet)!

   Oh I do!  I was just pointing out that, indeed, my "death by pop-tarts"
theory was relevant to the thread at hand, for the benefit of the AOLers (as
I put on my asbestos underwear).

   I think you're confusing pop-tarts with Vegemite.

   Just got _The Little Dinosaurs of Ghost Ranch_.  I took a magnifying
glass to the picture of the Ceolophysis skeleton with the baby Ceolophysis
inside.  Sure enough, I found one of those annoying aluminum foil wrappers
they put on pop-tarts these days.  Undoubtedly it was the cause of death ...
the baby Ceolophysis was in the process of opening up its lunch, the adult
decided it wanted the pop-tart, and, in its feeding frenzy, got a little
carried away.  It undoubedly choked to death on the foil.

   It amazes me that the paleontologists that described this find so clearly
missed the obvious.

   Of course.  The question now, is, how long before we hear "these messages
are off tooooppppicccc!!!!  Stttooopppp it!!!! <whine>"

>Rally against the resumption of French nuclear testing in the South
>Pacific: boycott French products NOW!!!

   Hell, just rally against the French period.  They must be eradicated in
our time!!!!
