I came across that looks interesting.


Some believe they became disoriented and beached themselves, while others claim they were moved by a landslide and became trapped in a lagoon.
But scientists remain baffled as to how exactly scores of whales ended up in a desert more than half a mile from the sea.
The skeletons of 75 whales, believed to be more than two millions years old, were unearthed next to one another, just yards apart, in one of the world's best-preserved graveyards of prehistoric whales.

Horse hockey, the scientists know full well the coast changes over time, Daily Fail strikes again.
And from just a few lines later:


Pyenson said the spot was once a ‘lagoon-like environment’ and that the whales probably died between two million and seven million years ago.

They can't even copy and paste articles right anymore.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.
