    Argentinosaurus (the largest dinosaur) footprint traces could contain fossils of other organisms. Their steps could create quicksand with a herd creating a very large amount over an area.

    You mean like they wiped out loads of organisms with each step?

    In 1923, hyperinflation meant that germans had to pass their wages onto their family every hour to go buy stuff like bread before the prices rose again. in the winter that year, burning money was better than buying coal.

    If you 'drown' in freshwater, you're not really drowning - the hypotonic water enters your pulmonary capillaries and enters red blood cells by osmosis, causing them to split and release potassium and sodium ions. These raise the blood levels of the ions, causing hyperkalaemic cardiac arrhythmia, so you die of cardiac arrest - drowning means dying from the asphyxiation, i.e., lack of oxygen.

    If you drown in saltwater, you are legit drowning.

    Well if there were a lot of very small organisms concentrated in a small area then yes. I mean with each step if the conditions of the soil were right they would create quicksand, organisms which were also roaming in the area could accidentally get trapped in the quicksand.

    A Bose-Einstein condensate is a sate of matter made up of a type of particle called bosons that have been cooled down to near absolute zero at lowest possible state, at which point they are all at the same low energy. Each individual particle's wave function combines into a single collective wave function called a Bone-Einstein condensate. This causes quantum phenomenon to occur at macroscopic scales, examples being super fluids and superconductors

    Apparently (not 100% sure if it's true), Ernest Hemingway (novelist) had a bet with his friends for $10 that he could write an entire story using only six words: for sale: baby shoes, never worn.
