Actually, the ancestors to humanity are believed to have been alive whilst the dinosaurs were. They were far smaller mammals, similar to rodents, who then had to survive the times of giant insects and birds that succeeded the dinosaurs.

However if the Master Chief is the peak of our evolutionary chain then I figure there's bound to be some other inaccuracies too.

Not dinosaurs in general, but a select few dinosaur families evolved into birds, yes. Namely the bird-hipped dinosaurs. Whilst huge monsters like Tyranosaurus Rex were bird-hipped dinosaurs, they were too specialised in hunting the other enormous dinosaurs that when the meteor came and changed the climate, they couldn't adapt.

No, the Raptors are the most well-known dinosaurs that evolved into birds. If you notice, birds of prey are called raptors and that is where the Vilociraptor draws it's name from.

There was a time where these birds took over from the dinosaurs. Their scales grew longer and lighter, eventually becoming feathers that allowed them to move faster. Those pidgeons you see bobbing around in the city centre are actually the descendants of dinosaurs.

In fact, the closest living descendants to the great dinosaur age are the reptiles. All reptiles you see share a common ancestry with the dinosaurs. They simply lived in areas of the world that did not change enough for them to require too much adaptation. They mainly live in hot locations, similar to the theorised hot conditions of earth before we came along.

The closest as far as I know is the Saltwater Crocodile. There were crocodiles in the dinosaur age too but they were far larger. However, they were also small-fry in terms of competition. Just like how the Sharks were around in the time of the dinosaurs but were small-fry in comparison to the great sea-beasts of the age. Now they, remnants of a time full of terrible monsters, are the strongest monsters left on the planet. Apex predators who are the top of their respective food chains. Both the crocodiles and the sharks prove that it is better to be smart than strong.

Just a shame that some tall, fleshy bipeds came along and took the top-spot on the list from them. Because humans eat everything. (Some even eat other humans... but we don't talk to those ones...)

actually tyrannosaurus rex is a lizard hipped dinosaur like all other theropods a which includes raptors and other bird like dinosaurs. bird hipped dinosaurs are actually dinosaurs such as triceratops and stegosaurus to name some popular ones.

and reptiles aren't decedents of dinosaurs they are more like cousins and share a common ancestor somewhere about 230 million years ago

You do not need to be a professor to be intelligent.

Fry and Laurie are examples of that.

Ah, now that, my boy, is not about being a good teacher, it is about being charismatic. The same reason that people listen to people like Martin Luther King, Steven Fry or even Adolf Hitler is because they have the ability to hold people's attentions. It doesn't matter what it is you're talking about, rather who you are that makes people listen to you.

It is said that a good comedian can make the phone-book funny and to an extent, that's true. Charisma is simply the ability to make people care what you have to say and it is why good teachers are so hard to come by, because charisma and knowledge are sadly, two separate things.

Also, as an example of a comedian with really good charisma.
