Mono Lake, California



These are tufa rock formations that are made of sedimentary rock formed by carbonate materials.

They're clearly fossilised camels.

So? It looks like a closeup of my shower curtain.

God booger.

There was some kind of 'game' or 'hobby' thing when I was a kid. I'm remembering it as some kind of wet sand that you dribbled to make things that look a lot like those TufaTowers, but for the life of me I can't remember and google isn't helping.

Does anyone remember?

Was it this?

I used to do it with regular wet sand at the beach, to make forests around my sand castles.



infinite monkey  Friday Apr 27 12:35 PM

No, I mean it might have been scientifically similar but it came in a box...like a toy or board game or something...

I remember! It was Wham-o Magic sand! It came in a little plastic bottle with a Genie on it! Great fun!

Yeah, it must have been that. I'm still not finding pictures that ring a bell vis a vis the box or anything...but it worked that way. I remember making things in those little goldfish bowls like you used to get at the fair if you threw a ping pong ball at the fish.

I also had one of these. I took it to school and Sister French Fry was all like "what do you MEAN the sand never mixes up? It looks all mixed up to me!" Yeah, well, you're a crotchedy old bat who told me my dead mangled cat most certainly would NOT go to heaven...and the sand unmixes itself...you mean old fart.

Go to this link that will trigger the memories - you can go nuts! Awwh!

I saw that picture but it didn't seem familiar. I could be just not remembering it or it could be that, as usual, we got the knock-off wannabe toys.

Like everyone else had an easy bake oven, I had like "Suzy Homemaker" oven or something.

Oh, here it is...see, it didn't even have the conveyer belt.
