A Brief Paleontology Lesson

I just spent the last two hours doing a fact-checking test, so I’m not going to stun you with anything original tonight. Instead I’m going to stun you with a more or less verbatim transcription of what SillyBilly told me tonight about dinosaur bones, one of his favorite topics:

Land dinosaurs were thirsty so they went to a pool to drink, but they went in too far and drowned. Their bones were so heavy that they sank into the sand. Over the years the sand turned into dirt, and the dirt into rock, and so did the bones. That’s why dinosaur bones are very valuable if they’re on the surface of the ground, because it’s very rare to see them up there.
