That's very interesting, but the eight mammoth tusks they have all date from 
35,000 years ago, long before the extinction and the purported impact 13,000 
years ago. The BBC rather lamely suggests that all those tusks just happened to 
be lying around 22,000 years after the mammoths died when the object hit.  I 
suspect there's another explanation.
