Dinosaurs story is always interesting

New theory tells that Dinosaurs went extinct because of the unbalanced sex ratio. In essence, the nature chose to terminate the life of Dinosaurs. Pretty interesting theory.

I don't how true this theory is, but I personally believe in the population control by the change of sex ratio in various species from time to time.

I wonder how female would feel if they are surrounded by a bunch of males. I would how male would feel if they are surrounded by a bunch of females.

One of the things about dinosaur theories is that they assume mass extinction in a very sudden manner. We don't actually know that that is what happened. The geological record is often very condensed - many, many years packed into just a few strata. People wrongly assume that if the thickness of the geological record is thin, then the event is a sudden one... and that's not necessarily the case. Am I making sense here? What I'm trying to say is that people like to sensationalise things... a mass extinction sounds much more interesting than a gradual dying out...

Maybe you are right. Maybe after all, science news might just be entertainment just like business and politics news being entertainment.
