  1. The Amazing Scientific Achievements of the Woman Who Kickstarted Paleontology

    "Thanks, Mary Anning." -Steven Spielberg [citation needed]

    Before Mary Anning and her contemporaries, it was still widely assumed that fossils were just remains from existing animals and not generally useful for science (nor put in the ground by Satan).

  6. True Life: I Was A Babysitting Dinosaur

    Nobody leaves this place without singing the blues.

    As a young, money-grubbing middle schooler, I experienced a lot of babysitting-related anxiety. What if I dropped the kid on his head? What if it choked on some yoplait?
