Mentioned here before!
I still favor the story that appeared in that reputable paper - I think
it was the Weekly World (or was that the Daily World?) - way back in
1986. The dinosaurs were killed off by trophy hunting Martians, who used
Iridium rayguns to kill dinosaurs and take their heads. Several live
specimens were taken as well, but they underestimated the total mass, and
their Iridum powered spaceship exploded, killing off the rest of the
dinosaurs, and covering the planet with Iridium dust. (It was a VERY big
spacecraft). This conveniently explains the dinosaur extinction, the
crater in Mexico, the Iridium layer, and the usual condition of dinosaur
specimens - i.e. headless wonders!
