Here's another one for ya, Dig... :shock:

Gaseous Emissions from Dinosaurs May Have Warmed Prehistoric Earth

ScienceDaily (May 7, 2012) — Sauropod dinosaurs could in principle have produced enough of the greenhouse gas methane to warm the climate many millions of years ago,
at a time when Earth was warm and wet. That's according to calculations reported in the May 8th issue of Current Biology, a Cell Press publication.

I wonder how you get a grant to measure dino farts?
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

I wonder how anyone could apply for such a grant without a smirk on their face... :lol:

I imagine that they didn't phrase it in just that way........ I hope.
