The first second I thought is that a tumor on his face.

@Squrlz4Sale: Your absolutely right, I did think of it. I don't know why I didn't, very odd.

Blaming humans alone for the passenger pigeon's extinction was debunked by someone a while back. He calculated the amount of lead shot necessary to bring them all down and figured that in some areas, you'd be walking on a carpet of the stuff. Also, at some point, the passenger would be down to the level of other similar pigeons which have survived to this day - why would the passenger alone go extinct? I skim-read the piece in a doctor's office or something and don't have the article at hand. Anyone recognize what I'm talking about?

God gave man dominion over the animals.
So if we killed them all off, it's God's will, leave it that way.

LOL @ Draculya's comment. Reminds me of what is probably my favorite *Onion* story of all time.

Science is wonderful. And scary. And amazing. And awe inspiring. And awesome.

I vote for something yummy, like the Dodo. Always wanted to try dodo meat.

Naw, I'd simply clone my wife and leave her for her younger self aged 18.

Hmmmm. I keep thinking I've seen this plot before somewhere, but I just can't put my paw on it (below).

Seriously, it seems to me that by not making even a passing reference to *Jurassic Park* here, the presenter dropped the ball. I'm sure that was the thought in the back of the minds of 90% of the audience.

18 minutes? *grumble grumble*

Oh, it's a TED? You should mention that in the description, eh?

Very nice! The sort of thing that the "general public" can really get excited about! I'd love to see the Dodo Bird come back Giant Sloth? Yes Woolly Mammoths (and Woolly Rhinos!) used to cover North America, but humans ate them all, nom nom nom!

Saber-tooth Tigers! Smilodons Actually Hells yes!
