It's quite a bit older than "centuries," though...

What editor called the dinosaur fossil "centuries-old" in the title? Was it a religious fundamentalist pushing a Young-Earth-Creationist agenda, or just someone who failed 6th grade science/math?

Most fossil stories in the papers read like "Nancy Drew and the Mysterious Skeleton".

What's up with the headline? Centuries old? Ummm.... yeah, I'm not sure if something 150 million years old should be refered to as "centuries old." Techinically it's correct that this thing is 1,500,000 centuries old, but this still sounds like dinosaurs were around in the 1600s or something. Maybe the Romans were fighting off velociraptors and T-Rex. Sounds like an awesome B-movie from the 1950s.
