Just a coincidence?

The July 1889 find in Nampa, Idaho, of a small human figure during a well-drilling operation caused intense scientific interest last century. Unmistakably made by human hands, it was found at a depth (320’) which would place its age far before the arrival of man in this part of the world. The find has never been challenged except to say that it was impossible.

When a magnitude 6.8 earthquake shook Olympia, Wash., in 2001, shopowner Jason Ward discovered that a sand-tracing pendulum had recorded the vibrations in the image above. Seismologists say that the “flower” at the center reflects the higher-frequency waves that arrived first; the outer, larger-amplitude oscillations record the lower-frequency waves that arrived later.

At level 50 it evolves into a kraken

"Welcome home to one of the rarest trilobites in the world. Thanks to a gift by Robert Hazen, this fossil of a new Apianurus species is now a part of the Museum's collection. This beautiful fossil was discovered by paleontologist Jake Skabelund in 2011 at the Walcott-Rust Quarry in New York." --Deep Time at the Smithsonian Facebook Page

Temple symbolism-- Cool to know all the symbols and what they represent.

1947: The Collyers were wealthy and eccentric brothers. Here their brownstone building is searched by NYC police after their bodies were found amid 130 tons of trash they had hoarded. It appeared that Langley had been crawling through their newspaper tunnel to bring food to his paralyzed brother & one of his own booby traps fell down & crushed him. Homer,blind, paralyzed & dependent on his brother,starved to death.

Amazing! Credit: Trond Larsen/Conservation International Many planthopper species exude waxy secretions from the abdomen, and these sometimes form long strands, such as can be seen here. The long waxy strands may provide protection from predators - fooling them into attacking the wrong part of the insect. The wax breaks off while the insect jumps to safety. The juvenile planthopper in this photo is only about 5mm long, and was exceedingly difficult to photograph!

Some mind-blowing facts…

This model shows what a body would look like if each part grew in proportion to the area of the cortex of the brain concerned with its movement.

Leucistic sea turtle has a genetic defect which causes reduction of pigment on the body.

Giant Sphinx Moth (Cocytius antaeus) has an extremely long proboscis (tongue) – here seen fully extended as it would be if the moth were sipping nectar from the bottom of a very long-tubed flower and is the only known pollinator of the rare and delicate ghost orchid of Florida’s swamps. by blog.hmns.org. www.pinterest.com...

Washington Monument as it stood for 25 years, 1860. George did NOT want any monument erected for him; he chose to be buried on his home estate. He considered monuments to be objects of conceit and arrogance. In 1833, the 100th anniversary of Washington's birth, a group of concerned citizens formed the Washington National Monument Society. This started a process in 1888. (A 25-year gap in this picture and the "color band" we see to this day.) Photograph by Mathew Brady.

The Giant Isopod The only uplifting thing to say — after realising that such a horrifying thing exists — is that it seems to have a taste for Doritos, rather then human brains. This bizarre animal is related to the common Pill Bug and, according to fossil record, have existed for over 160 million years. Even though it looks like these creatures could easily take over the world if they wanted to, they are actually quite harmless, deep-sea scavengers , from Iryna

The gravesite of President Lincoln's grandfather & namesake. He was killed by Indians while trying to tend his crops. The president's father, Tom, was a boy and nearly kidnapped at the time. His older brothers heard the commotion, came running to kill the Indians and save Tom. All this happened outside Middletown, KY near Louisville in the 1770s.

Yep, Woodpecker Tongues are totally bad ass. They wrap around their head and can extend out 3 times the length of their beaks using a mechanism called the Hyoid Apparatus. The tongue itself has a bony point on the end covered in backward facing barbs in order to harpoon their prey. And if they miss, the tongue is covered in sticky saliva which can also help snag any prey. They also have a listening device in their tongues, called the Herbst Corpuscle, which allows them to sense vibrations.

This granite head (80 cm) is attributed to Caesarion (Ptolemaios XV), son of Cleopatra VII and Julius Caesar. It is part of a statue of about 5 metres in height and dates from the 1st century BC. It was found in Alexandria's ancient harbour opposite the island of Antirhodos.
