"How the Earth was Made"

Ok, I am telling everyone that they need to watch the season 2 premier of How the Earth was Made on the History Channel tomorrow at 9pm EST. The episode supposedly will feature my old advisor, Dr. Richard Young, on the making of the Grand Canyon. You can check out the press release on my undergrad college, SUNY Geneseo's, webpage.

Geo-Paleo blogs from across the Globe

Stumbled upon a new blog that I highly recommend. It seems fairly new but it is a really cool concept. It is not directly Geo or Paleo but related but is an Evolution advocate blog. Really funny, highly recommend.

The Axis of Evo

Also this has been added to the blogroll on the left.

Geo Story Time

I just remembered a geology related story/memory that I figured I would tell:

About 7 years ago I was on a trip with my Sequence Stratigraphy class down to the joint regional GSA session in Kentucky. When the class got down there we saw a huge sign that said "BEER". It was a calling. So later that evening we had our professor drop us off at the store while he went away and did something else. So we shopped around, picked up lots of goodies for the coming days, and when we were all done we went out and sat on the curb waiting for our professor to get back and pick us up.

This is when another person pulled up to the store, looked at all the young 20something's sitting on the curb, with piles of beer, and said "Let me guess, geologists, right?"
