And You Wondered Why They Were A Little Different.

WASHINGTON (AFP) - A meteor's roaring crash into Antarctica -- larger and earlier than the impact that killed the dinosaurs -- caused the biggest mass extinction in Earth's history and likely spawned the Australian continent, scientists said.

No wonder they are a little different. Probably still breathing metorite dust. Second question, could this impact be where the alien and predator are duking it out?

Looks like I'm kinda bored today huh?

"Australia" could be alienspeak for "Earth Colony".

Haven't you heard? The Weekly World News, or some rag like that, has recently revealed that Earth will be destroyed in a few years in a cataclysmic collision with a meteor.

It's a shame that NASA astrophysicists don't read and react to such obviously informative articles.

We're doomed! We're all doomed, I tells ya!
