Fossils at Monmouth Beach. Lyme Regis, Dorset. We were all so excited over these! So many happy memories from my childhood, and hopefully making happy memories for my children. It was so amazing to be in a place that helped to change history so spectacularly. You can almost feel the fin de siecle anxiety in the air, see the Victorians walking on the beach, see Hardy thinking up that passage in A Pair of Blue Eyes, Mary Anning finding her fossils. And you just can’t get it into your head that you’re looking at creatures that are hundreds of millions of years old. It’s too big to grasp.

(I have over 150 of these photos. Be grateful you only got 10.)

Certain places on this planet force mankind to think.

Would love to see these for myself

This is insanely cool, especially because we just remembered that this week’s TechKnow—a repeat of one of our favorite episodes—includes our first (and so far only) signature cocktail: bourbon poured over glacial ice

Looks cool

Melbourne-based architecture firm studio505 has designed and completed the Lotus Building and People’s Park that’s located in Wujin, China. The civil building’s impressive physical form resembles its namesake, the lotus flower, with petals that rise dramatically out of an artificial lake in the middle of a park.

Wow. Impressive

This so beautiful, I would love to see it in person
