They even came up with an explanation as to how dragons became extinct: If memory serves, it was because male dragons kept the temperature of their eggs to the degree to produce females, to reduce competition for mates. Yes, the temperature of their eggs determined gender.
    Just like alligators. It was all a really clever way to sneak in something educational.

    My daughter has it on DVD, I end up watching it at least every other month.

    EDIT: By the way, did you know:

    Blast? Yes. Though usually nowhere near the speed of light. Current? No, because neutrons are electrically neutral and do not react to electromagnetic fields.

    Oh wow lol.
    Universe expanded shortly after the big bang by creating new space, not by moving.

    Humanity is still making progress.

    Well, it doesn't look that way anymore. (just noticed your post, RD).
    The prevailing theory now, based on recent scientific evidence, is that the Universe is expanding at an accelerating rate due either to that elusive stuff, dark energy, or some misunderstandings about gravity itself.

    It will apparently not slow down and fall back toward the center--what is known as the Big Crunch--as was previously suspected, enabling the Universe to Big Bang itself all over again, every so many billions of years like clockwork. No.

    Instead, maybe it will continue to expand, faster and faster, in a process called The Big Rip. Galaxies will fly so far apart that they will redshift into invisibility. The universe, the night skies, will become dark. Then individual stars, planets, humans, molecules, atoms...everything will fly apart and annihilate itself as the density of matter in the universe becomes too weak to sustain gravity. This might take around 22 billion years.

    The most prevailing conjecture is the heat death of the Universe, or the Big Freeze. Hypothetically, as the Universe expands, all matter will eventually cool down to absolute zero. No more stars will be born, all suns will eventually burn all their fuel, light itself will become a distant memory. Even black holes will evaporate over time until nothing remains but a complete state of maximum entropy where there are no gradients of any sort capable of sustaining information processing. Meaning, no life, no nothing. Just cold, dark space. But trillions of years away, many many trillions of trillions!

    Nothing lasts forever.

    So, what you're saying is, at a certain point in the future, we'll be able to sneak into locker rooms to watch other people change?

    If I could be invisible, I would sneak into the Olympics. Specifically, the Wrestling locker rooms. Happy?
