This ironic graffiti tag on the Carrboro, North Carolina was photographed by reader Jason Adams. The impact of an asteroid in what is now the Yucatan Peninsula was a bit of a bad day for them, but we are probably much better off without having to worry about tyrannosaurs wandering the suburbs or sauropods causing traffic jams. Still, some dinosaurs (birds) survived, so the next time you’re having a chicken dinner don’t forget about its more impressive extinct relatives.
