No pop culture reference in the title today.
I actually went to see a mammoth.
It was cool.
Check out the webcam at the site (which I didn't know was there or I would have had you watch me while I was visiting).
And here is the website about the Wenas Mammoth Dig.
"wenas" is pronounce "ween" "ass" which is funny.
There were HUGE BONES there and I got to see them in person but I didn't touch them because they are fragile (pronounced "frah-GEE-lay" because it's Italian) (there's my pop culture reference!).
It's pretty cool as far as a dig goes, but SUPER HOT as far as the weather goes. Hot Hot Hot.
My officemate who is coocoo for mammoths did not go so I got him a t-shirt. What is cooler than a t-shirt from a mammoth site?
I wanted to donate to the dig, but I only had 1 20$bill and I spent that on the t-shirt. I'll have to send cash here soon.
The world of archaeology/anthropology is tiny tiny tiny. The guy running the dig went to school with a guy I worked with at ISU. The guy who came to visit while I was there is a fellow WSU graduate who is friends with my friends Al and Diana. It's all so intellectually incestuous. We need new brain-blood.
The blog thingy does not want to upload the images so you'll just have to go to the mammoth website. Enjoy.
