I don’t know anyone who likes fleas, but they’re a common problem with owning cats. They’re little jumpy bastards who love nothing but to stick their fangs in you and feast on your tasty life-fluid – I hate them. But this fossil of a giant 165 million-year-old 2cm-long flea makes me feel a bit sick.

Europeans have all the fun: lower drinking ages, funner beaches, easier lifestyles and... dinosaur skeletons having sex in their museums. This exhibit, which clearly shows two T-Rexes "mating", is located in the Jurassic Museum of Asturias in Spain.
