Bury the evidence. No, really.

On Monday there was a freak accident involving a high-speed train in China and a lightning bolt. A communication issue led to another high-speed train colliding with the fried one and lots of people dying (and even more getting severely injured).

So the authorities dug a hole and covered it up.

See more photos in the Time gallery.

And people are ticked. Check out the YouTube video before China gets a hold of it and takes it down. (Can they do that on YouTube? I know it's already pretty hard to find on Chinese sites...)

China pulls this crap all the time, but this was the last straw for a lot of folks.

Good for them!

Dinosaurs eat man. Woman inherits the earth...

This guy in Vermont earns a high-five for his 122-foot wooden dinosaur.

Neighbors got grumpy about his giant work of art. But he got to keep it when the District Environmental Commission No. 3 said the dinosaur "won't destroy or imperil wildlife." (Cue *headdesk*.)
