   There's something I've been curious about and maybe those who are very
familiar with the position of the continents 65 mya.

   Where was India at the time, relative to Chixalub?  If you look on a
globe today, India is almost exactly on the other side of the planet from
Chixalub (I think you know what I'm hinting at here).

   Also, had India begun to impact on asia yet 65 mya?
