Detroit Agate – You Will Never Guess What it is Made From

When cars are manufactured and painted today, it is all done in clinical clean and well extracted facilities. This means that after each car has been painted, there is no leftover paint. This is not how things used to be. In the past, cars were painted in booths where the excess paint would just fall to the floor.

Over the years the paint would form thousands of layers as more and more cars were painted. If you were to chip away part of the floor, you would be able to see all these layers in all their different colours. This is called Fordite or “Detroit Agate”.

After chipping off the block of Fordite, it can be cut into smaller pieces and polished. The polished stones can end up looking both unique and beautiful. Fordite is becoming very popular for its unique beauty especially with jewelry makers who can commend high prices for this precious material. The material has a grain, almost like the grain of an old tree.

I want to go to this exact point and run around it saying “I’m in Sweden!” I’m in Finland!” “I’m in Norway!” until I get tired
i aspire to great things in life

According to Google Maps, that point is in the middle of a small lake.

So we’ll do it in January when it’s frozen.

actually that’s why they’ve helpfully dropped a big-ass cement block with a bridge surrounding it in the middle of the lake: for the express purpose of doing what OP aspires to do

"There lived four wizards of renown, whose name are still well-known: Bold Gryffindor from wild moor, Fair Ravlenclaw from glen, Sweet Hufflepuff from valley broad, Shrewd Slytherin from fen. They share a wish, a hope, a dream, they hatched a daring plan, to educate young sorcerers, thus Hogwarts school began."ra

Yeah, so that’s Islington’s morning sorted, but for the afternoon, he’s already decided: no more Mr Nice Guy Angel.

I am not alright with how Endeavour's 2nd season ended. Truly. WHEN will season 3 be here?!
sundaynightmasterpiece replied:

I don’t know that it’s actually been reordered for a third season yet, has it?

Regarding the ending, I didn’t tumblr savior #endeavour when it was airing in April, so I saw all the first run viewers being not alright with the ending at the time, and somehow I came out of this knowing more or less how the series ended for Thursday and Jakes, but no one I was following said a word about how it ended for Morse. Which I just find bizarre.

It hasn’t…we’re all still hoping.

And well…we all know what will happen with Morse so we’re slightly less worried about him.
