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 can’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 pallial–basal ganglia–thalamic–pallial loop (FIG. 3b, white arrows). This vocal learning pathway is similar to mammalian cortical–basal ganglia–thalamic–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.

damn gurl are you Acantholipan gonzalezi cuz that booty could kill the club

https://www.telesurtv.net/english/news/Mexican-Scientists-Discover-New-Dinosaur-Species-20180612-0027.html
>Paleontologists at Mexico's acclaimed Desert Museum have discovered the remains of a new species of dinosaur that inhabited the coast of northwest Coahuila state 85 million years ago, making it the oldest dinosaur to have inhabited the region.

>The name Acantholipan gonzalezi, comes from the Greek acanthos, which means spine, and Lipan, in honor of the brave Apache tribe that inhabited the region where the specimen was found.

>Acantholipan differs from its closest relatives such as Nodosaurus and Niobrarasaurus, since the ulna (one of the bones of their forearms), has a much larger projection than in other nodosaurs, in addition to having conical spines in the pelvic region.

I don't know what sexual preferences the historical figure of Jesus H. Christ had, but I could imagine he'd at least consider it (though "fuck" is such an ugly word. I think he'd call it something like "interspecial duo-sexual merrymaking", but again; I can't be certain).

I own a bird and therefore a dinosaur.
It's amazing to imagine that dinosaurs were able to imitate other animals way back when and how maybe tiny dinosaurs liked to snuggle in large mammals hair.
The coolest shit is imagining that some dinosaurs had a sense of ownership of some objects like how some penguins like a certain rock or how my pet bird will attack me for touching this blue bag she likes.

Another wicked thing I like to think about is the fact that mammalian evolution happened so much closer to now than avian-dino evolution did. Birds are fuckin' ancient compared to us. Insects even more so but they're mean and try to get into my cabinet and eat my crackers so I don't like them as much.

Pet dinos need to replace cars. That's the future I want to live in. I mean imagine riding a big dino through city streets.

I imagine that some dinos where very chill. Like friendly, even cuddly. The technology to make them walk again is here. I just want them to be big cuddly pets. Like a few of them had to be chill enough for tha.
