Is poop-filled drinking water what killed ancient giant sloths?

Evidence collected from an ancient boneyard in Ecuador suggests that a group of 22 ancient giant sloths died in a wallow of their own feces. Other mammals, such as a deer, a horse, an elephant-like creature called a gomphothere, and another species of ground sloth were identified at the site. The fate of the sloths parallels that of modern hippos who can become lethally poisoned in times of drought when the feces to water ratio shifts in their watering holes. Evidence collected from a fossil t...

No, the OnePlus 8 Pro Does Not Have X-Ray Vision

But there’s a growing body of evidence that it’s close contact, often during gatherings of beloved friends and family, that is driving the spread of the novel coronavirus. Brief interactions — like passing by someone during a walk outside — don’t seem to be the primary force behind the epidemic, based on what we know so far from contact tracing studies.
