There have been over 90 recorded cases of amphibians being found alive but fully encased in coal pockets or stone geodes. Of these cases, 40 involved frogs or toads. After a few minutes exposed to air it comes-to-life In most cases the animal dies with 24-72 hours but there are some references that when these poor creatures were quickly allowed into fresh pond water they seem to have survived indefinitely.

WOW WHAT

Necromancer a couple millenia ago was just like.
" you know what’d freak some miners out?"

Sci Fi as fuck


comedy equals tragedy plus time so it’s actually pretty funny when you think about it

Hexagonal rocks-WUT: The columns form due to stress as the lava cools. The lava contracts as it cools, forming cracks. Once the crack develops it continues to grow. The growth is perpendicular to the surface of the flow. Entablature is probably the result of cooling caused by fresh lava being covered by water. The flood basalts probably damned rivers. When the rivers returned the water seeped down the cracks in the cooling lava and caused rapid cooling from the surface downward. The division of colonnade and entablature is the result of slow cooling from the base upward and rapid cooling from the top downward. (via Hexagonal rocks)

A New Perspective of the Day: This is What a Volcanic Eruption Looks Like from Space

Here’s a striking view of Sarychev Volcano in Kuril Islands of Japan going through its early stage of eruption, taken from the orbit of the International Space Station in June 2009. For more info on this picture, head over to NASA’s Earth Observatory!
