The son of a zookeeper, Wylie Brys, discovered no less than a 100-million year old dinosaur bone whilst digging in the dirt this past September.

Hillary Clinton operated email server for state business

A new report also details how Clinton used her own server to run this email service. At her home. See?! Pretty impressive, right?
