Fossils

Yay, today I found a fossil it was a turtle bone from the lower cretaceous so yay me. I also got myself sunburnt across my damn arms but still 100 million year old bone from a turtle that died and wound up in a silty river bed

Anybody else got some fossil stories or what not?

Congratulations!

I have tonnes of them from when I was a child living in the desert. My family are all metallurgists and we used to all pile into the canvas backed Landrover and go on lapidary expiditions. After some time I was able to tell the difference between kangaroo poo and iron ore......are you still with me Wanderer? ....... as I was saying... The Nullarbor has eroded all the way back down to revel its original function as the seabed. There are many aquatic fossils to..... Wanderer? are you there, mate? ....... mate? mate?

I was going to impress you with a photo of one of my ancestors, son of two convicts, who went East to Vic for the gold rush. Fantastic photo it is, taken later of course, with my George in his big stetson (or whatever their called) hat, britches, suspenders, and boots but such is the crappiness of my day I cannot currently locate it.

The photo that is. I can locate the crappiness of my day.

Inverloch should be fun. Take lots of 15+ and a long sleeved shirt though.

Are you going to Inverloch as part of a group? Part of a course? Just for fun?

Actually if you are genetically Mediterranean you may not have such an issue with the sun. Its more of a prob for us "blessed' with Angle/Saxon/Jute/Gallic skin

What course?

Irish skin eh? You will need SPF 30021315+ then. I am of the "just one more freckle and I will have a tan" variety myself.

I have total bog irish skin.

I have a friend who was born and lived in South Africa/ Middle East until he was about 12 or 13. He gets fabulous tans. In the summer while I have all my sun creams on and sit under large umbrellas I still managed to get burnt. I get burnt very easily and my skin looks pink but it feels like it's on fire. Then it starts peeling. Then I go back to looking really pasty. My brother got loads of stick at school for looking like Casper and I was known as Caspers sister. har har.

The children at your school were creative. I was called "ghost" ..... at every school I ever attended


But fossils, they dont get sunburnt


Edited: cause I spelt "school" incorrectly

my dad has a fossil. for his birthday one year, my mom got him an old bullet from the civil war. he's a huge civil war buff. he's also got umm...something dinosaur related. i'm thinking he's got a claw, but maybe i've seen jurassic park too many times!

This is something that I hope genetic engineering will resolve. Not so much the pasty white issue but the ability to go out in the sun and not burn.

Yes, Im talking about equal beach rights for all

Now, back to fossils. What are those spiral shell ones called? We had a lot of those growing up.
