Holy 36-foot-long crystals, Batman!

Yes, that's a man in the center of the image. Click the image to see the story.

WOW! I wonder how many places around the world have those precise conditions to allow for such massive crystal formations?

Had to share this.

Best,
Chris

Can you even imagine? Wow.

Now add colored lights. Ooh, or picture a laser-light show there. Just add mind-altering substances.

Hey, I was at that concert in the late 1980s!

The Miami Planetarium used to have a weekly Friday and Saturday night laser show that featured Pink Floyd. It was quite the thing for bored young teenagers to do when they weren't attending showings of Rocky Horror (or if they just wanted to mix it up).

According to their website, looks like they still do it. Some things are just too good to die!

Apparently just being in there is mind-altering. Tha's just awe-inspiring.

Bwahahahaha!

I'd always wondered how people actually sat down on Krypton. I guess, with their super-powers and all, they don't need to, but still, that's gotta be uncomfortable.
