TY Cal. I'm a little disappointed about the dinosaurs but the white smell is pretty cool.

I think #11 is interesting..do they leave little sea-horse heads in the kelp bed?;)
"Gangster dolphins
Marine biologists studying Australian dolphins discovered that the mammals form complex hierarchies within their pods in order to attack other groups. Some individuals serve as fighters. Others serve as liaisons to go out and recruit new members. These "intricate webs" are rare in the animal kingdom, says Virginia Morell at Wired, and strikingly reminiscent of "the Mafia."

The giant planet is nothing new. No doubt it is a gas planet and really of very little meaning.

Now that was interesting. I am glad the scientists can't bring back the dinosaurs because they would just be another many species on the brink of extinction, kept in zoos for humans to goggle at, and all the while wishing that they were free.

The last one just goes to show that we aren't all that far removed from the animal kingdom after all. Beam Scotty! I'm ready for the dimensional shift. lol
