While visiting the Natural History Museum in Washington, DC, I meandered over to the area where they work on fossils. They had two ladies with super small "jackhammers" working on "releasing" the fossil that was lodged in the rock. I watch for about five minutes and thought these volunteers must be REALLY into this kind of work because it is SLOW and TEDIOUS. I guess the results must be terribly satisfying though.............seeing a dinosaur bone "come to life" before you must be a real thrill. I think I'll stick to flying....:-)
