That depends. Is that an African or European swallow?

I thought about something, how do you feel about them saying that it's been confirmed that 30 species of flightless dinosaurs have been confirmed to have feathers?

I feel like my whole childhood has been a lie.

Oh and being that you're into science, I think this is one of the best sites ever http://www.iflscience.com/

Not sure if you already have it, but I figured I'd share for anyone that might be interested Smile

I used to love that site, but many of the headlines were clickbait, or deliberately poorly phrased, such as the article that "black holes as we know them do not exist" when what it actually meant "Some things we thought we knew about how blackholes worked were wrong", not as snappy of a title but far more accurate

Also check out the search engine Wolfram Alpha. It can give you answers to complex maths (trigonometry, calculus, etc) as well as information on pretty much anything else you want to know.

@Insanity_Thorn Dude, don't get me started on how much I love AsapSCIENCE XD

And @Epsilon743 thank you very much, I'm only 14 and not very advanced in math Razz
I'll get there eventually, Rome wasn't built in a day

That is exactly the way to take it sixthhokage ^.^
We weren't exactly around to know specifically what dinosaurs looked like, all we have are the few remains from ages ago
I always used to take things like this with a grain of salt, so to me it wasn't a big deal finding out
(Btw sorry the reply is late I never even noticed that message until now XD)

ScienceSarah, it's not just maths, but also just a general knowledge search engine.
