Is it possible that dinosaurs weren't all that cool? Since the accepted theory is that birds descended from dinosaurs, and since everyone knows that birds suck

Were dinosaurs perhaps just giant, stupid, boring, squawking assholes?

Chickens will skeletonise a mouse in seconds if it walks past before feeding time. Magpies keep shit lists and remember favours, learn to imitate us to take the piss and create art. Eagles hurl animals off cliffs to tenderise them. Birds are worthy of respect.

And of course there is the Emu War.

Right now there is a family of little owls (the species, not just owls that are small, though they're pretty small) near my house. It's pretty rare in "cities" but while I'm nowhere near the edge of town there's a lot of trees and fields in my area. Anyway hearing them squeak they're adorable but they do sound like tiny dinosaurs.

While being 20-25cm high they still eat anything smaller than them including smaller birds, mice etc. I don't think they're eating them but I've noticed the squirrels are much edgier than normal lately. Maybe it's because dinosaurs.

World of dino-killer asteroid impact found frozen in time

The "Tanis" site of the Hell's Creek formation in North Dakota preserves the immediate hellish hours after the asteroid impact 66 million years ago.

The location is a riverbed where the M10-M11 earthquake caused by the impact (thousands of kilometers away) resulted in a massive "seiche" standing wave, leading to an apocalyptic die-off of plant and animal life, as the river's flow was reversed multiple times similar to a tsunami. Fish gasped for air in their final moments as their gills were filled with sand and small globules of glass that were lifted by the impact from the Yucatan peninsula and rained down in North Dakota like hail and snow. Marine life from the Western Interior Seaway was pushed upstream and mixed with the freshwater fish, all dying within a short period of time. Ash, charred plants and globs of amber indicate the nearby forest was on fire at the same time, and the location is topped by the iridium layer characteristic of the K-T extinction event.

The massive number of fossils were well-preserved in 3D despite being only lightly covered in the immediate aftermath of the impact, showing that no scavenging happened in the near-lifeless hellscape world of the newborn Cenozoic era. A tiny ratlike mammal's burrow was found cutting through the extinction event boundary, with its digger's remains still inside after it died alone in the freezing darkness.

>tl;dr: Most important find regarding the KT asteroid impact since the identification of the Chicxulub crater in the 80's.

First paper, probably of many to be published. Only a ceratopsian hip bone was published in this one, but other dinosaur fossils like raptor feathers have already been found:

That's just fucking crazy. That site will still give us new insights when I'm in a home for the elderly.

So the site has been rolled back to December.

If dinosaurs did in fact exist, why are there now no dinosaur ghosts? I've never heard of the ghost of a dinosaur running amok in a canyon somewhere and upturning tents and hitting low flying A-10s. Why are there no dinosaur ghosts? It's easier to identify a ghost in a house because people live in a confined space and encounter them, sure, but we would have encountered large ghosts of large animals when out hiking or camping or whatever, or tents would have been randomly crushed. I mean I'm sure dinosaur ghosts do exist, somewhere, in caves, if you go far enough in, or deep underground. Miners should have encountered them by now. If the Earth is flat, and has deep caves, then it's a given there are dinosaur ghosts in them.

Disclaimer: The following is mere speculation and does not necessarily represent truth since presenting the actual, factual evidence of it all would put me and my associates in danger.

You see way back, even before the dinosaurs roamed, the planet existed in a higher frequency that could be seen as a different plane of existance from what we have come to know as "reality of life".
Among the inhabitants of said plane of existance was a sort of grand reptile mass-consciousness that (due to the planet's shift into 3rd-dimensional gear) had to fragment and place it's selves into different scales and shapes of carbon-based biomass entities, in order to descend with earth to avoid extinction.
These lifeforms came to be what we now call "dinosaurs", which really were but a mere shadow of their original form.
But again, this is just a speculation.

As our soul decays, we reach higher planes of existence.

We are the sloughed off flesh of a rotting god so deep in the void it is physically impossible to reach him.

We canā€™t travel faster than the distance entropy dooms is to. The rate is too high.

According to this theory, the avian cerebrum is almost entirely composed of basal ganglia, the basal ganglia is involved in only instinctive behaviour, and the malleable behaviour that is thought to typify mammals exclusively requires the so-called neocortex. However, towards the end of the twentieth century, there accumulated a wealth of evidence that these viewpoints were incorrect. The avian cerebrum has a large pallial territory that performs functions similar to those of the mammalian cortex. Although the avian pallium is nuclear, and the mammalian cortex is laminar in organization, the avian pallium supports cognitive abilities similar to, and for some species more advanced than, those of many mammals. To eliminate these misconceptions, an international forum of neuroscientists (BOX 1) has, for the first time in 100 years, developed new terminology that more accurately reflects our current understanding of the avian cerebrum and its homologies with mammals. This change in terminology is part of a new understanding of vertebrate brain evolution.

The apparent pallial relationships between these mammalian and avian brain regions were also supported by molecular embryology studies28,68,69. During development, both the avian hyperstriatum and neostriatum and the mammalian pallium express the pallium-specific transcription factors EMX1, PAX6 and TBR1. The developmental data led to uncertainties about how much of the archistriatum is pallial28,30. However, comparisons of the expression of the brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF ) and the glutamate receptor mGluR2 in adult birds and mammals indicated that the entire avian archistriatum, as defined in brain atlases17,70, expresses these pallium-specific mRNAs34,36. Further studies of the comparative expression patterns of other glutamate receptors in adult birds and mammals36 support these conclusions. Together, these studies indicate that the avian hyperstriatum, neostriatum, and archistriatum might be homologous to mammalian pallial regions.

An example of how avian pallial and sub-pallial areas can interact to produce complex behaviour in the context of the new view of avian brain organization can be seen in the brain pathways that control learned vocal communication (FIG. 3). Most of the telencephalic auditory processing areas are in the pallium, adjacent to a smaller auditory area in the striatum (FIG. 3a). Likewise, most of the telencephalic vocal control nuclei are in the pallium, with one vocal nucleus in the striatum (FIG. 3b). The vocal nuclei that are involved in the production of learned vocalizations, including human speech in parrots111, make up a pathway that directly innervates brainstem motor neurons (FIG. 3b, black arrows). This vocal motor pathway is similar to mammalian motor corticobulbar pathways106. The vocal nuclei that are involved in the imitation of vocalizations form a pallialā€“basal gangliaā€“thalamicā€“pallial loop (FIG. 3b, white arrows). This vocal learning pathway is similar to mammalian corticalā€“basal gangliaā€“thalamicā€“cortical loops27,106,114, which are involved in motor learning, sensorimotor integration and addictive behaviours. Other avian sensory and motor systems that are used for cognitive behaviours share a common circuit organization with the auditory and vocal pathways63,64.
