Re: 'Kitchen science' reveals dinosaurs died in agony

Uh...?!?  Unless those are warm-blooded fish, fig. 6.4 (pp. 94-95) in:

Barthel, K.W., Swinburne, N.H.M., and Morris, S.C. 1990. Solnhofen: A Study in Mesozoic Palaeontology. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 236 pp.

...should be enough to show that it ain't just "warm-blooded" animals that can attain this position in death... 'Course, I hain't read the Padian & Faux paper yet, either; maybe they address this...

"Trying to estimate the divergence times
of fungal, algal or prokaryotic groups on
the basis of a partial reptilian fossil and
protein sequences from mice and humans
is like trying to decipher Demotic Egyptian with
the help of an odometer and the Oxford
English Dictionary."
