Every year the anniversary of the meteor impact that killed off the dinosaurs goes by quietly, but no one knows, amirite?

We should all pick a day and commemorate... like... as a species, globally and just hold a moment of silence for all the dead lil dinos... now I'm kinda sad... thanks...

True story: same day as my birthday.

I don't celebrate the big holiday, but I constantly pray it will come back.

But remember that the length of a day was shorter back then—approximately 23.5 hours—so a year would have had ~373 days, and therefore no single date would correspond to the date when the meteor struck.

Doesn't matter...
You could still in principle run time backwards 66 million years in current days and years to when the extinction event occurred. The trouble is only that we don't know exactly (to the nearest current day) how long ago that was.
