I should have thought of this. :( Its dead simple and will very likely become ubiquitous. Nicolai Tesla's wireless power scheme will come to fruition!

Tokyo DisneySea

There is a Tokyo Disneyland, but DisneySea is what Disney park aficiondos call a "second gate" (so Disney's California Adventure is a second gate for the original Disneyland, and Epcot Center is a second gate for DisneyWorld).

Ugh, WaPo. Zircons U-Pb dating only accounted for a fraction of the geochronology in that paper. Most of the geochronology is Ar40/Ar39 dating of plagioclase, which is much more plentiful in basalts like those making up the Deccan Traps.

Besides that they're still drastically arm-waving.

So not as cut and dried as purported, got it. You wouldn't happen to have a link to the official paper on it?

Its linked to in the WaPo article, but you'll need a institutional subscription to Science probably.

I looked at it because their mention of zircons (in flood basalts) made me do a double take. They're extremely rare in that type of rock and I would not expect it to be the primary form of dating (and it wasn't).

But they try to show an acceleration in eruption rates within 50,000 years of the Chixalub impact based on some holey data. I'm still not convinced and probably will never be convinced that there's some sort of physical interplay between the Chixalub impact and the Deccan Traps. I can buy that they both contributed to the KT extinction event, but independent of each other.

A series of trading cards created in 1902 showing women in future "fantastical jobs" like lawyer and policewoman:

and many showing décolletage and a lot of bare arms like the above. Specifically the second set entitled "Les Femmes de l’avenir" ("The Women of the Future") at the link above. Text in French.

A version of the London Underground map which also lists an average monthly rental for each of the stops.

Image


The lowest monthy rental is at Hatton Cross--£324--near the far western end of the Piccadilly Line (lower left corner in the above). Hatton Cross Station is literally under the end of the approach to one of the runways at Heathrow Airport which is why the three stops on the Piccadilly Line beyond Hatton Cross are not listed as all three are at terminals within Heathrow.

£552 is the next cheapest, in at least 3 spots that I can see.
