[many eons ago...] I was taught Petrology as part of my Geology degree by a professor who received a PhD from Johns Hopkins who steadfastly and vehemently denied plate tectonics as it was proposed. He denied the mechanism.

Since he made his course exceedingly hard and he was otherwise terribly boring, members of my class would seek to bring up the topic to distract him. It worked. Damn topic triggered the crap out of him.

Yep. Clear evidence. You cain't git no clearer.

It's a dude going down on a mermaid.

/Her head and hair is to the left, she's on her back, and her fin goes to the right and is resting on his left shoulder and wrapped up across the back of his head while going into the screen.

Ummm, Sideling Hill, Route 68?

I remember my 6th-Grade Teacher explaining this wacky new theory of plate tectonics back in '66, so she was ahead of her time by one year.
