Interestingly enough, I used

Interestingly enough, I used to be a micro-fossil tech at the Smithsonian. My online aviatar is a plastic model of a microfossil I was fond of whose genus name was Elphdium. Here is an electron microscope photograph of Elphidium crispum. It is a foraminifera, and as you can see from the scale in the corner, very small. Foraminifera are a group of protozoans that cover themesleves with mineralized shell called a "test."

It's obviously design. God's

It's obviously design. God's hand in this world is a magical thing that is designed to "Test" us all.

Fantastic stuff! Thank you.

The micro world is as fascinating as the perceived macro world to me.

OMG elphidium! You worked at

OMG elphidium! You worked at the Smithsonian?!?! Ok ***calming breath ***.... is it true you guys collected all the “giant’s bones” and dumped them in the ocean? or are they locked in a secret room?

Private message me ... I won’t tell anyone else...

On another note, you familiar with the Tyrrell Museum? Have taken the boys there about every 2-3 years since birth...

"On another note, you familiar with the Tyrrell Museum?"

Me neither.

AM familiar with the Museum of natural history in Victoria,. It has/had a hug totem pole standing outside.

If you have never seen it, I recommend the Museum of UBC, on campus. They have the best collection of Kwakiutl artifacts in the world. I only saw it because our host was an alumnus. I had only just finished my degree in Social anthropology. Part of my studies dealt with the Kwakiutl people.. It was a fantastic experience seeing all that stuff. More cultural theft by a colonising power.

I love museums,so have visited every one I could. My favourite is small provincial museum,'The FitzWilliam,' in Cambridge, which belongs to the university. It is built in the neo classical style,and looks almost exactly like the South Australian State Parliament building.

It may be small, but it's magnificent. As I walked in I was confronted by a massive stone head of Ramses The Great.

------They also have a smallish room full of the most exquisite French Impressionist paintings. Every collection is simply superb. I spent nearly a whole day there. Which was a lot more time than I was able to spend in the Victorian and Albert in London.

Of course British museums have superlative collections. A lot of 'em are filled with gear looted during the days of the Raj ,and they only stole the best. Pretty sure no country has so far manged to get any of its stuff back from the English..

(((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((90))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

O/T; an ironly: I saw the 'Elgin Marbles' in the Victoria &Albert.They're superb. Lord Elgin stole them, via an agent, from the Parthenon between 1801 and 1812, leaving about half in situ. In 1990, I saw what's left of the ones Elgin left .It was pitiful. Athens has some of the worst pollution in world. The Greeks have removed them from the Parthenon and put them in a purpose built museum on site, but it was too late.

British imperialism at its height was without conscience. It never questioned its right to colonise a country nor its right to loot anything it fancied. Looting tended to occur as much by chicanery and humbug than by force.

---I'll save my rant about American Imperialism for another time

Ahhh - part of our family

Ahhh - part of our family vacations always include museums ... and the boys do get excited - really they do. In Edmonton, our province’s Capital is a fine military museum.

The Tyrrell houses shitload of local dinosaur bones. When my youngest went through his “I want to be a palaeontologist” phase (gee, White, how’d you know it was a phase .... The kid HATES the outside and bugs and dirt) the Tyrrell was extremely informative and helpful.

Um, I think you meant to say, "#6." Damn, ape. Thought you could count better than that.

@Tin: *Looking Confused* "I said #6. If you are seeing 16 it must be an ant leg in front of the 6. I was snacking while writing.
