Well, the Dinos got nothing to do with their extinction.. as Forrest gump once said - "Shit happens" :)
and we're taking it down by ourselfs.. and taking most of the other species with us.. making room for somthing new i guess..

Well, we are. if we want it or not..
and the faster we'll realize it the better..
we started thinking of seperation ourselfs from the animal kingdom just since we discovered agriculture.. then we stopped migrate, started making too many babys, and started ruin the delicate balance of nature.. :(
