Eat, Fart, Die
Tom Smith

I'm suddenly a lot less sympathetic to the dinos.  I am tempted, but really should not, explain this whole story to my 8 year old.  It would be a memorable way to explain the dangers of global warming to a kid, though, if I believed in it.  Which, alas, I do not.  I understand the arguments; it's the conviction I lack.  Could have a road to Damascus moment, I suppose, falling off my Suburban.  Maybe God looked down on the earth and thought, Oh Me! I've created a world in which gigantic reptiles produce farts so monumental that I can smell them up here.  I'm going to send a giant rock their way.
