Non-Fiction Discoveries

I confess, I love going to Disney World. Obviously there's more to Florida than happy rodents though  ...

Long before those magical places of mouse-eared proportions were built, a whole lot of tectonic activity went into forming the shape of Florida. Shockingly enough the shape does not resemble a mouse!

Most people think about the Disney World when you mention Florida's big theme parks, yet there are so many more fun amusement parks to visit. Side note: Universal Studios are way better than Hollywood Studios!

As though the geologic angle would be all there is to it. I might not be too big on Earth sciences, yet learning more about the history of the happiest, err, oddest shaped place in the US is right up my Monorail!
