I'll tell you, I was really beginning to feel like one of those aliens
in the old "Twilight Zone" episode ("The Monsters on Maple Street")
wherein the alien ivaders just dimmed a few lights and blanked out
radio or two to send mankind into a bout of irrational paranoia. Very,
very few of you DINOSAUR list members actually read the message &
noticed the headers, or did any research at all about what the origin
of the message... well, I guess it just goes to show how many folks
actually apply scientific methodology in their normal lives, eh?

p.s. Feel free to flame me (privately, though... Mickey doesn't need
this stuff cluttering up his list!); I'm a card-carrying skeptic and
quite used to being criticized because I'm right.

Anyway... does anybody have any idea what the largest species of
plesiosaur is? Is that title still held by the short-necked variety
Kronosaurus, or has there been a new discovery... I thought I'd gotten
a report on a larger species being found recently.
