MAY THE BRICKS BE WITH YOU A scale model of an X-Wing fighter, made from more than five million Lego bricks, went on display in New York City’s Times Square on Thursday. It’s 11 feet tall, 43 feet long and 44 feet wide, it’s the largest Lego model ever built. Coming soon: a life-size Lego Jar Jar Binks to ruin everything.

So, in the middle of everything today, we ran across a hellaciously distressed momma mallard and a bunch of her baby ducks that had fallen down a sewer grate. Another guy was already trying to fish them out, so my friend and I called animal control before we tried to fish the rest of them out. When Animal Control got there, we had all of them out and the mother duck quacking very happily. I was surprised - none of us got snapped at or hurt. I was even holding onto a bag at one point that had all of them in it and she just watched me.
I love how the duck is perched on the guy’s butt
I’M SO HAPPY
AH GOSH this has made me so happy
what wonderful people
It’s like she understood they were helping ;;

Septa detail in an ammonite.
Septa are the walls of the chambers of the shell. They were filled with seawater or air to change elevation.
The process of fossilization is done through mineral replacement. Pyrite can replace the septa of an ammonite, as seen above. This ammonite is likely to have been treated with bismuth, causing the rainbow color of the crystals.
