The extinction of the Dinosaurs opened the door for Mammalian evolution and ultimately Mankind....so cheers big asteroid.

I hope the line from the article, "deadly gypsum" doesn't start an uproar over all of the gypsum board used in homes.  Gypsum is calcium sulfate.  It's quite inert and that's the problem. It has many uses, but hard to get rid of.  There's only so much plaster board and cement you can make.  And per the Wiki article, this "deadly" product is in tofu. 

Here's the Wiki link:

Gypsum is only deadly when you pulverise billions of tons of it and throw it into the atmosphere, creating a "nuclear winter" :)

Tragically? Considering the extinction event opened up the path for human evolution, i wouldn't exactly call it a tragedy. Unless you're a Dino, of course. I'm sorta kinda happy to be alive at this point.
