    Amazing whale fossil find...

    I was just reading about the discovery of a 4 to 5 million year old whale fossil found in an Italian vinyard. The most amazing thing about this to me is that people have probably been walking over it and planting grapes on it for hundreds or thousands of years without noticing (it was not apparently very deeply buried).

    I can just imagine the wine, 'a nice boquet with a hint of blackberries and a faint touch of blubber.'
    Don't believe everything you think!

    I know this is off topic but that is what this area is for. Talking about whale reminded me.

    This is a link to the "infamous Exploding Whale" This is NO joke. It happened.

    I'm just wondering what his insurance company said when he put in a claim for his car

    John, my family was very happy when we saw that article about the discovery. My sister has been missing for a long time and we were glad that she was finally found.
    Thanks, Mark.
