Jane Selverstone, Professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at the University of New Mexico, Alburqueque, uses brie and gouda cheese to illustrate the process of orogenic collapse, in which mountains (the brie in this picture) begin to collapse under their own weight and spread, shortening the foreland regions on either side. The foreland regions, like gouda, do not change shape. Click to enlarge.

IS THERE NOTHING CHEESE CAN’T DO??

    Project Unbreakable: The Video

    I am so anxious to share this video with you all. Many, many thanks to the incomparable Nino Gallego for producing, filming, and editing it, and many, many thanks to my dear friend Allie Moss for allowing us to use her song “Dig With Me” in it. You can buy it off iTunes here.

    I am a nineteen year old college student with a dream of changing the world. I have so many things I want to do for this project: travel to different areas, hire a professional to answer advice, and overall expand it as far as I can. But I don’t have the money myself to do so, so I am turning to the general public for help. I have created a fundraiser on something called IndieGoGo so I can find a way to be able to help as many survivors of sexual abuse as possible.

    If you can donate to it, I am forever grateful. If you cannot but are still willing to share this, I am also forever grateful. We have the ability to make a huge difference.

    The fundraiser can be found here: http://www.indiegogo.com/Project-Unbreakable?a=385209

My boss said, “You have to get rid of this cat because it was polluted by radiation.  You must dump it in the sea.”  However, I can’t do it for the following reasons.  First of all, this cat alive, second, if I dump it in the sea, the sea will be polluted by the cat.

Well that’s that sorted.
