Name Fail →
The headline mislead me. “Top dinosaur hunters are worst at naming.” Here I thought it meant that they were likelier to be lazy about coming up with names, with such nonsense as Tawa and Mojoceratops. Or hell, Othnelia. Nope. The article is about the dudes who were in such a rush to name dinosaurs that a huge percentage of the names they applied have fallen out of use. Still an...

Yeah, it isn’t a dinosaur, but this is probably the only recent dino story that doesn’t include some tired crack about horny dinosaurs that must make the journalist penning the headline feel like the wittiest little shit since Oscar Wilde.

One man put a new twist on bestiality Sunday afternoon when he sexually assaulted a dinosaur - a large, plastic one - in a Chester County park, according to police.
Three T. rex links
Mr. T. has been big in the news the last couple days, I guess. NatGeo on Tyrannosaur evolution. MSNBC/Live Science runs an article about the same with a slightly cooler picture (below).

Yeah, the reference is to the band and not the...

I cannot agree enough with that sentiment.
A Dinosaur Story
This is too much win in one place to not link to: Miami Heat forward Da’Sean Butler wrote a children’s story on twitter. Copypasta follows: Once upon a time there was a young boy named Da’Sean. Da’Sean was 22 years old and lived in Newark, NJ. While walking home from school one day, a Purple Dinosaur jumped out from behind a Brick Wall and tackled Da’Sean to the ground. But just...
Boltysh Crater →
Surprised I haven’t seen more of this story lately: given that the dinosaurs weren’t immediately wiped out after the meteorite hit, it’s possible a multiple-impact event is what did them in. The proposed theory is that meteorites hit the Earth at Chicxulub, beginning the whole process, and then at Boltysh to finish them off.
