What sand really looks like—grains of sand, magnified 

Photographer Gary Greenberg uses a 3D microscope to open our eyes to the microworld — a place where tiny sand grains look like colorful pieces of candy.

In Gary’s talk at TEDxMaui, he explains what we don’t see when we stick our toes in the sea:

"Each sand grain is about a tenth of a millimeter in size. When you look closer, it’s really quite amazing. You have microshells there; coral; fragments of other shells; olivine; bits of volcano; tube worms — an amazing array of incredible things exist in sand. 

When we’re walking along a beach, we’re actually walking along millions of years of biological and geological history. We don’t realize it, but it’s actually a record of that entire ecology. If you look at different sands from different places — every single beach, every single place where you look at sand — they’re different.”

“It’s still astonishing to see that film. In fact, when he was doing storyboards for the Ave Maria section of Fantasia (1940) and one of the story people said, ‘You know, I don’t think we’re using the cartoon medium as we should be.’ Walt immediately turned on the guy and said, ‘This is not the cartoon medium, we shouldn’t only be thinking of this as a cartoon, we have worlds to conquer here.’”

- John Canemaker, Author and Historian

Roadside Dinosaurs - The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

The are literally thousands of roadside dinosaurs in the world. The best website, if you love strange roadside attraction in general, is agilitynut.com. These dinosaurs are just a few of the strange dinosaurs located off major highways. Some good, and some terrible roadside dinosaurs across several states.

1) Outside of the town of Erlian in China on the Mongolian border, you can find this statue of two amorous sauropods kissing across the highway. It was built to showcase the region’s reputation as a fossil hotspot.

2) A very sorry looking dino located in the city of Victorville, California.

3) This 100-ton T.Rex was created in 1981 by sculptor Claude K. Bell to draw visitors to his Wheel Inn Cafe. At one time, a slide was built into the Tyrannosaurs’ tail, but it was later filled in with concrete. You can purchase souvenirs at a museum shop located inside Ms. Dinny, a 150-ton Apatosaurus considered the largest concrete dinosaur in the world, located in Cabazon, California.

4) Entrance to Kentucky’s Dinosaur World. One of the creepiest sites of all.

5) Cowboys and Dinosaurs (as well matched as cowboys and aliens) spotted in Natural Bridge, Virginia.

6) Rainbow Rock Shop in Holbrook, Arizona has a rather large display of very nice dinosaurs.
7) This is Wrinkles, a strange creature who greets visitors outside of the Jurupa Mountains Discovery Center in Jurupa, California.
8 & 9) Dinosaur World - an abandoned theme park of decaying dinosaurs in Beaver, Arkansas. All of the components necessary to be truly creepy.

Nothing could be more hushed than the way
The moon moves toward the night.
