Pleostocene Flower

Wow. The Russians took a 32,000 year old seed and re-created this. Pretty neat.

I picked up a mastadon once upon a time at the NCO club in Fort Knox. If I would have had that then I would have given it to her.

This is remakable! I appreciate the fact that you see it too. We would make pretty good fishing partners I think.
