eric: have you ever heard of lake agassiz?
eric: it’s a lake that was formed in the middle of the US from glacier runoff
kara: no. oh it’s big. was big.
eric: larger than all the great lakes combined!
kara: are you reading something about it?
eric: just the wikipedia
eric: it’s interesting b/c apparently it just kept getting bigger and bigger as the glacier receded
kara: nowhere to drain?
eric: until eventually an opening into the ocean opened up
eric: and it all drained *at once*
kara: yikes – 1-3 meters rise in sea level!
kara: that’s INSANE!
eric: …meanwhile, in the bible…
kara: how did you come across this
eric: i was reading about biblical history
eric: abrahamic religions & so on
eric: i mean… theoretically if the timing on that is there they think it is, it accounts not only for the flood myths across various religions but also global cooling and the genesis of urban life & agriculture which led to monotheism in the first place
kara: …it’s weird that this is making me hot right?
I am in the cookie puss variety hour gallery on flickr. please please, hold your applause.
…something really wrong about the one with the candles stuck in the eyes, though.

the photo of jonathan frakes with tousled hair (and stonewashed jeans) made my heart skip a beat. photos here
it’s science day here on hyperbolation :D
today mom and I went to a taping of the ellen show. the guest for our show was portia de rossi, but her segment was pre-taped. we got to watch it, but we aren’t in the audience for that part of the show. our show will be aired tomorrow, thursday november 4. we also got to be there for the pre-taping of mario lopez’s segment for next week, but I’m not sure when that will air. he was promoting his new reality show, and brought on his girlfriend and their new teeny baby, gia.
