This fascinating new theory was outlined on Sunday evening's "60 Minutes." Watch:

Sunday evening will be curmudgeon Andy Rooney's last appearance on "60 Minutes."
Rooney began his run on "60 Minutes" in July 1978 with an essay about the reporting of automobile fatalities on the Independence Day weekend. He became a regular feature that fall, alternating weeks with the dueling James J. Kilpatrick and Shana Alexander before getting the end slot all to himself in the fall of 1979. In Rooney's first full season as the "60 Minutes" commentator, the broadcast was the number one program for the first time.
