While I'm on the subject of geology (when am I not??), I want to scream about just how COOL this rock is.
Just looks like an ordinary, uninteresting brown rock, right?
This, my friends, is an ophiolite. This is a rock that formed in the upper mantle. The minerals it’s made of (primarily olivine and pyroxene) are the most common minerals in the Earth, but don’t often make to the surface. The part of the lithosphere this formed in usually just sinks back down into the mantle in a subduction zone at the end of its life cycle.
But sometimes, in the right set of circumstances, pieces of the upper mantle can get pushed up onto the continent. The minerals in an ophiolite don’t like the low temperature/low pressure conditions at the surface. They quickly start to weather and form the non-descript brown color you see here instead of the green and black colors of the unaltered minerals.
But that’s not where this rock’s story ends.
At some point when this boi was chilling on the surface, a glacier came and picked it up. The glacier wore our rock smooth as it carried it over hundreds of miles before dropping it unceremoniously in a 5 meter thick layer of mixed up rocks and sediments that it laid down everywhere it went. It sat there in that layer of glacial till for thousands of years before coastal bluff erosion freed it and set it down on the beach. There it sat with other rocks from hundreds of miles away until a geologist who knows a thing or two about rocks (not me) picked it up and knew it wasn’t just another rock, but something unique that told a story about what happened not just to that beach, but to the earth hundreds of miles away and thousands of years ago.
Every rock tells a story in four dimensions.
Think about that next time you see one.
#geology#ophiolites #i really wanted to break this open and see if the olivine was still relatively unaltered inside #alas i did not #would have loved to get a thin section of this baby though #field photo #lae rambles about rocks again
I weighed myself for the first time in a few months and I weigh fucking 146.2. I can’t help but think that my scale might be inaccurate because I’m not skinny by any means, but I really can’t comprehend weighing THAT much. Anyway, my goal is to get down to 130 as fast as I possibly can. I’m going to restrict to 500-700 calories per day, but if I feel too sick I’ll allow myself to eat as much as 1000 per day
I am 15yr, 167cm/5‘5 and weight 58kg/127lbs. I want to loose at least 5kg/11lbs. How much calories should I eat? My basic requirement are ~1.450cal. So I tried to eat 1500cal a day and lost 1kg/2lbs in a week, but I ended up binging up to 2000/2500cals a day, so I gained everything back. I own a horse so I spend about 1-2 hours at the stable 6x a week, but i don‘t ride at the moment because she hurt her leg. I think I burn about 300cals a day. I don‘t really work out but I do hula hoop about 3x week for 20min. I wanna loose the weight as healthy as possible, so how many calories do I eat? PLEASE HELP ME OUT! I did also deal with b/p and ana. I ate 500cals a day and the next day binged on 2500 and purged most of it. I just wanna stop that shit but still loose weight. Stay safe everyone and just dm me if you can help me or write a comment <3
My LW (95lbs) vs. what I was in august. I had gotten out of treatment a month before and let myself out of control. I’m so disappointed in myself, but I got out of treatment again in December I’m now 160. I’ve never felt like such a failure. The past week I’ve been eating under 500 a day, so I’m hoping I lost some weight but I’m too scared to weigh myself. I don’t want the disappointment.
**Just so everyone knows, treatment did not do this to me. I did. I only gained a few pounds in the hospital, but I went on month long binges for too long. If you’re ready to recover and are going to treatment, don’t be scared. They have your best interest in mind.**
