    One of the bizarre theories I've seen for some time.

    Dinosaurs 'produced enough flatulence to force climate change' | Mail Online

    Puts our modern day farting into perspective...

  2. Excuse me..any chance of that working on illegal immigrants? Sorry, crack on. Two sugars is it? biscuits? That's the door I think

    No climate change is a new thing.
    We must build more windmills to save the world.

  4. Only as crazy as the 'asteroid' theory...

    We know something caused a change in climate, and the dinos died and turned to oil.
  5. If you weigh 14 tonnes and all you have to eat is fucking broccoli trees, well what can you do?

    The coal reserves was in fact a global attempt made my the dinosaurs to provide the earth with a giant odour eater......

  6. Now if the QM had issued all the dinos with lighters, they could have burned off the methane. As the resulting CO2 is less of a climate killer than methane, then the dinos would still be alive today.
  7. The team calculated the animals would have collectively produced more than 520m tons of methane a year - more than all today's modern sources put together. It is thought these huge amounts could easily have been enough to warm the planet. It is even possible that the climate change was so catastrophic that it caused the dinosaurs eventual demise.

    Does this mean that the Dinosaurs use to blow their own trumpet

    If I could blow my own trumpet I wouldn't need my lass to do it for me.
  11. Some people get paid good money to come up with this sort of shitty research answers.

  12. Any one remember the good old game of dutch ovens? Great stuff, fart, hold wife under duvet until she cries surrender.

    Alternative was shower game, bit like above but feed poisonous gas into shower outlet, on balance far more effective than dutch ovens, only downside was lack of long term fun.
  13. ah, well. It must have been added to with all those Heiniken, pickled eggs and pickled onion eating and farting contests held in various NAAFI bars in Germany through the 1960s and 1970s that probably brought the Berlin Wall down eventually, and caused communisms to fail.... Hmmm, now is that correct?

  14. Didn't old Heinrich hold the copyright to that game?
  15. No patent, so fair game and I have checked!
