There is NO WAY it happened any other way than a comet ...

Scene from Meet The Robinsons - my favorite depiction of a dinosaur

In yet another surprising turn of events, the commonly held extinction of dinosaurs theory may be wrong:

As reported by Slashdot:

"Everyone's got their favorite theories of Dinosaur extinction, but new speculation is rampant in a book that gives cause to believe it may have been disease-carrying insects. Due to the length of their slow and eventual extinction (the 'K-T Boundary'), it is argued that this would more likely be attributed to the spread of disease and the rise of parasitic insects like ticks or biting flies. Are our immune systems the only reason any animals survived?"
