Re: Absurdity Blues, in both shoes
This is a little off the current discussion, but I was hoping that
may be able to give me some help on the neat little fossil of a brain a friend
of mine found. It is a little
over 2cm long, and about 1cm wide, and according to the CT scan, there is no
side it and it has the same consistent density throughout. It appears to me
that this is a
very rare case of soft tissue fossilization, with cell for cell replacement.
the cerebral, cerebellar, brain stem, cell structures, and some nerve
attachment areas are visible. I have some pics I can send if anyone is
interested in looking it over.
