HNT - Geology

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

“GEOLOGY, n. The science of the earth's crust --to which, doubtless, will be added that of its interior whenever a man shall come up garrulous out of a well. The geological formations of the globe already noted are catalogued thus: The Primary, or lower one, consists of rocks, bones or mired mules, gas-pipes, miners' tools, antique statues minus the nose, Spanish doubloons and ancestors. The Secondary is largely made up of red worms and moles. The Tertiary comprises railway tracks, patent pavements, grass, snakes, mouldy boots, beer bottles, tomato cans, intoxicated citizens, garbage, anarchists, snap-dogs and fools.”

~ Ambrose Bierce


It's a retro HNT - *click* will only get you a bigger globe!

OK, am I the only one who looked at the picture and saw Sarah Palin looking over the world she hopes to someday dominate?

Dana...that scared the bejeebus out of me!

g-man said...

Very nice. I really like the composition and lighting.

I like maps and globes too. (not to be confused with my other fascination of fleshy globes ;)

Well done as usual Dana!

I like your retro. :) I believe your eyes might be the same color as mine. In the right light, my hair and eyes match, and yours look that way in this picture. I love it. <3

I'm a map freak too! Globes are too expensive to buy everytime a country changes it's name!

Definite sign of "unconsciously" showing internal strife at home with Iraq and Iran prominently displayed. LOL What exactly is that thing on top of the globe tho? Looked like a prism or something. HHNT!

Average Chick said...
