Just a Little Off

According to scientists, about 1.8 billion years ago and going on until about 800 million years ago, things were pretty boring, life-wise. Single-celled organisms developed, and then that was pretty much the whole picture for the next billion years. The story at the link offers several possibilities as to why this era of our planet's history was such a snoozer.

I don't know who came up with the headline "The Most Boring Time on Earth," but I feel kind of iffy about scientific blog posts being written by someone who's never heard a presidential State of the Union address.
