A couple days ago I learned that the Hopi traveled all the way up to the Canadian Rockies and left some pictographs.

Cool, I wonder how they know it was Hopi and not their cousins in the north.

I'm going to start digging on that because the Hopi identification is recent. Unfortunately, people seem unable to keep their hands off the pictographs because they are in a reasonably easy canyon to access. I assume earlier photos are more revealing.

99.9999% of visitors can be respectful and leave no trace, but it only takes one idiot in a million to ruin it for everyone forever.

How many places have you revisited that the entrance is blocked so you can only peer in? Like in Cades Cove, NC as a child I climbed the ladders into the lofts of the log cabins. Its easy to tell the names of the cretins who visited as they left their identification carved in the wood.

TIL that the current world water speed record (317.60 (or.58) mph, by Ken Warby, in Oz) is 40 years old, and that the last two challengers both died attempting to break it.

In fact, it's forty years old today.

That's a fairly small boat, how'd he get those yuge balls in there?

I learnt on Wednesday at a work course that one litre of solvent can contaminate one hundred million litres of water.

Yes true, but I think they were talking about inorganic solvents, which are hazardous to health.

One drop will contaminate the same amount of water.

Just not to the same extent.

Well I don't know. One drop in a hundred million litres might not be detectable. There may be no solvent molecules in some samples. But I'm certainly no expert on the subject.
