Scientists Have Discovered the World's Oldest Color

Scientists Have Discovered the World's Oldest Color:  Scientists claim to have found what they believe is the oldest color pigment ever discovered, found in 1.1 billion year-old rocks, deep beneath the Sahara desert and - described as a bright pink.  Wait a minute - if this was the very first color, does that mean prior to that, everything was in black and white?

Canadian Man Found Dead with Face Half Eaten By His Dog:  A 62-year-old Canadian man has been found naked and half-eaten by his own beloved dog on his bedroom floor of his Thailand home - with his face chewed down to the skull.  My guess is the poor pooch probably began by licking the man’s face trying to wake him up and then, after a few days passed thought - “hey, this really ain’t that bad!”  One thing’s for sure, if anyone’s thinking about adopting this dog, it might be a good idea to make sure there’s plenty of extra dog food laying around all over the house.

Florida Man Asked Cops To Test Purity of HIs Meth Purchase:  Fearing a rip-off, 49-year-old Florida resident Douglas Peter Kelly found himself under arrest after he contacted the sheriff’s office, saying that he wanted the illegal meth he had just purchased tested because he didn’t think it was quite up to his standards.  My question is, what standards do meth addicts have to meet?

Some guy thought his Sheriff’s department tested meth for consumers? I wasn’t aware meth was hallucinogenic. Of course, his meth may have been impure enough to be hallucinogenic.

I read this somewhere earlier this week about the earliest color is pink! 1.1b years old! and got all caught up in how cool that is and how the microscopic building blocks then were entirely different than today, then being cyanobacteria, not the microscopic algae we have today, explaining why evolution into larger organisms didn't happen for so long.....

Wait. Are your eyes glazing over just like my family's do right about now?  ; )

Ehh, saying 'color' is confusing. The original article had me confused on that at first, too.

Anna,
No reason for eyes to glaze over. Just explain that Cyanobacteria were bacteria with long noses

Comment by Anna Herrington on July 11, 2018 at 8:57am

Ha! Cyano, cyrano...

kosh, I'd have to say cyanobacteria had torque engines...or it's the new motorcycle from Tesla...or there was a high speed chase and crash... for any glimmer of excitement, there.

Although the newly discovered method of opal formation involve ions chasing after electrolytes with satisfying crash resulting in the bright gems' .....

oh, never mind.  ; )
