Old car factories had a harmful impact on the environment, releasing toxic chemicals into the air, land and water. But it wasn’t all ugly. Oddly enough, one of the by-products of car production was Fordite, also known as Detroit agate. The colorful layered objects take their name from agate stones for their visual resemblance. But instead of forming from microscopically crystallized silica over millions of years, Fordite was formed from layers of paint over several tens of years.
"Wave washing" refers to a hunting technique used by some Antarctic orcas. If they see a prey animal (such as a seal) on an ice floe, the orcas will move in a synchronized pattern to create waves. The waves knock the prey off the ice floe and into the water, allowing the orcas to get ahold of their meal. Talk about smart! I don’t know about you guys, but I am SO glad that orcas aren’t prone to attacking humans! (well, not so much in the wild, anyway)
