This morning, I look like a lion. No doubt this is entirely my fault, and something severe will have to be done about it. Either I brush it, or I'll have to eat someone. Given how hungry I am...

Scientists have shown that the moon is moving away at a tiny, although measurable distance from the earth every year.

If you do the maths, you can calculate that 85 million years ago the moon was orbiting the earth at a distance of about 35 feet from the earth’s surface.

This would explain the death of the dinosaurs. The tallest ones, anyway.
