I’d like to relay a story about what happened while I was having dinner at the on-campus dining hall yesterday. I had a bunch of salad, and then decided I wanted something with a little more grease in it. I went back into the Buffet area and cobbled together a makeshift poutine. If you don’t know what poutine is, you’ve missed out on a lot of joy in life.
Anyway, I went back into the dining area and sat down by the TV (there is a massive TV screen). And guess who was on CBC newsworld? It was Philip Currie, talking about a new article he and another guy (Nicholas Longrich) have published about a new, incredibly puny carnivorous dinosaur:
The kitten-sized predator identified by paleontologists at the University of Calgary and the University of Alberta is the smallest carnivorous dinosaur ever found in North America. The next smallest meat-eating dinosaur ever found on the continent was about the size of a wolf. (CBC)
So that’s my story for the day. Go to get poutine, and come back to a fascinating paleo story on CBC Newsworld! And if you’re wondering, the poutine was pretty good too.
