The faux moulding attempting to give a landscape feel caught my eye.

I like museums where there's someone around who likes to talk to you. Not every museum has a talker, but with those that do the other employees gladly shove you along in the talker's direction.

Great pics, Lance. I guess it makes sense that mammoths lived on your "rock". They'd pretty much go where ever the food was. Still, it is surprising and quite cool to see y'all actually have some fossils from their vacation days!

Thing is, though, they've been gone from everywhere for a bunch longer than 4,000 years. And it turns out that yet another hammer of the gods may have played a part in that extinction as well. Stoopid deities are always killing things. That's one of the many reasons I refuse to believe in any of 'em.

Idyllopus, thanks for the very interesting link on the comet theory. It makes alot of sense, I once heard the native populations in the SE US had a tale of a large firey sky deity that flew across the sky from the west to the east and burned the earth. Maybe this was passed down orally from that time by survivors. I don't think anything closer to Ontario would have survived to tell about it.

As a young student of Astronomy, I was once going to write a paper entitled "The problems of civilization building in young solar systems"

Maybe I should get it done before its too late!

Uncle Merlin, I didn't pass along the link, Michael Bains did. I instead commented on the faux landscapy molding. But it's nice to be mistaken as having brought something of worth to the party.

And 'twas my pleasure. :)

Sounds like a great topic, Uncle M. I'd love to read some SF about such a place.
