Continental Collision!

This is a complete non sequitur, but one of the reasons that I enjoy watching television shows like “How the Earth was Made” or “Prehistoric: New York City” or whatever, is because sometimes the voice-over tries to make something like plate tectonics exciting for the kids and says things like, “… and the collision last for seventy million years!”

I swear to god, they actually just said that. I know that they are probably using the word “collision” in a way that is technically correct, but if they keep this up, we are going to have to start using a different word for when one car hits another car at 80 mph.
