"The Universe is not only queerer than we suppose, it is queerer than we can suppose"

Fred Hoyle got that right, at least.

Just ask Gabrielle.

Now what are the odds that when Neptune, Pluto, and Xena are all in the same neighborhood out there in Kuiper Belt at the same time with their satellites merry gravitational hell is unleashed and you get that 26 million year extinction maxima event?

FYI: Xena and Gabrielle were officially renamed Eris and Dysnomia, respectively. I'd love to see what astrology buffs make of Pluto's "demotion," Ceres' "promotion," and the discovery of several other big Kuiper Belt mini-planets. I'm sure those worldlets have even less effect on personality than they did on the extinction cycles your graph depicts.
