So, what does all this mean?
Oddly placed fossils in the Transantarctic mountains could carry a sea level warning all the way to the present.

Next to DUI, possession of drugs may be the most common criminal offense we see in our office. When people come in they often tell me, "but marijuana or personal use of any drug is not worse than alcohol." I don't know whether that is true or not, but I tell them there is one big difference: Drugs are illegal. And if you don't think a drug conviction will mess up your life, you are living on Mars.
