yorkshire.fossils This is another look at one of our favourite ammonites, prior to the outer matrix being polished, for those who haven’t seen it. These ‘Cannon ball’ nodules (rocks) are thought to be exclusive to the Yorkshire Coast, found nowhere else in the world. They rarely contain fossils, but when they do, they typically contain an Eleganticeras sp. ammonite. This fossil here is featured as found. Some of the outer chambers were broken open when we cracked open this rock, which allowed a rich smell of bituminous oil to be released.

Well this is lucky. Apparently for this FossilFriday I’m starting with ammonites in stuff.

When prepared, the outer pyrite coating of the nodule will be polished, to achieve a golden mirror effect.

So I was listening to music, and I realized that this song fits really well for out TAZ protagonists and Angus MacDonald, and I wanted to share this knowledge.

So I did Craig’s story last and after the 2nd date the game glitched and Josephs creepy fucking twins were frozen on my screen for like the rest of the story…. 

“Gotta admit, I never understood it.”

“What?”

“Hand cannons.”

“What’s to understand? Aim, shoot, big boom.”

“I mean the fundamental design concept of the weapon class. If you’re making what amounts to a handheld ballistic particle accelerator, why model it after an archaic rotary-firing kind of pistol from before the Golden Age?”

“Guess weapon designers are romantics sometimes. Have you seen, like, anything by Tex Mechanica?”

“Maybe, but for that matter, if you want to build a semi-automatic gun optimized for maximum impact per shot, why make a handgun at all? Stability and recoil are always problems, as is range, and reload mechanisms get tricky when you require such a small magazine, and—”

“Look, what’s your point?”

“I guess my point is: why aren’t hand cannons just scout rifles? You know how much better the ballistic performance characteristics would be on an extra-high-impact rifle platform?”

“Maybe hand cannons just aren’t the guns for you.”

“Maybe. Hard not to like this one, though.”

“Why? Explosive payload’s nice, right?”

“Sure, that’s not it.”

“Well?”

“It’s the feel of it. The weight in the hand, you know?”

“I think you might understand hand cannons after all.”
