    It would be very depressing if this topic ever died.

    Well, the death of dinos made this topic possible.

    AFAIK, oil comes from algae and plankton, coal from plants.
    Most of both deposits come from geological age that predates dinosaurs.

    But we should ask @zegh8578, he will know more. Don't take my word for it.

    Actually it would make sense for it to not be dinosaurs at all simply because the sheer volume of biomass required would probably rule them out, come to think of it.

    Yup, you're both right. Dinosaurs are both too recent, and - being big, bulky, terrestrial animals (even a shrew is big and bulky, compared to the vast majority of life-forms on earth), they were way too dispersed and few. Little can compare to the enormous collective mass of microorganisms always present in the world.

    I like how the largest animal on earth has to constantly feed on planktons, and population-wise, they don't even notice. Apart from the largest whale - medium and small whales also feed on plankton and krill, and not even a dent in the populations.
    Then there is all the fish in the sea, *also* feeding on krill and plankton. Still nothing.

    That said, one of my favorite childrens songs as a kid was about a little Brontosaur baby that falls into a lake and drowns, beneath the moon, that watches it die. Millions of years later, the little Brontosaurs body form the petroleum, taking the rocket right up to the very same moon. I cried.

    That's really morbid for a children song. I love it. Do you have the link to the song?

    They were a local duo, with very absurdistic lyrics most of the time, other times they'd promote anarchism and civil disobediense, sometimes they'd criticize pop culture. They got running gags and personas that come and go into the songs. Musically, they put a lot of effort into their songs, with energetic choruses and sometimes complex structures to the songs. By now, some of their songs are almost national anthems, especially among 70s-80s kids. They eventually split up in the late 80s, and one of them died in the 90s.

    I loved their songs as a kid, they made my brain hum, trying to figure out wtf they were singing about, and I love them as an adult, appreciating the depth of their songs, that were really always meant for kids.

    Isn't the largest living organism some kind of Mushroom?

    Either that or one of those trees that basically form entire colonies from the same rootstock. Forget what they're called, though there's multiple types.
