Anybody seen Rosie O'Donnell lately?

This sounds like the secret source of Nevada's rhinestone mines.

"The team thinks this drip started some 15 million to 20 million years ago and probably detached from the overlying plate only recently."

recently? as in last week or a few thousand years ago?

MA, I knew about McQueen, but OMG, Burt Bacharach wrote the music.
