600 Million Years and Counting…
I was pretty bored so I decided to make some GIFs of the last 600 million years of our planet’s plate tectonics.
The first GIF is a global mollewide projection. The second one is of the Colorado Plateau and the North American Southwest. The next GIF is of the entire formation of the North American Continent. The fourth GIF is of geologic and tectonic evolution of Europe. And finally the last one is the same as the first except in rectangular format.
I obtained the images from Global Paleogeography and them compiled them one by one into Photoshop with the end result being the above GIFs.

Signed on at a new apartment. This will be the first time I’ll be out on my own for a lease. I’m looking forward to it.
I saw a seagull
It floated on a strong wind
She ignored the cars
This is the sound Jupiter emits via electromagnetic waves. It’s so incredibly cool (10:00)
it sounds so sad and lonely
