10 October 16

I could say that I'm wearing this great dinosaur tie today just because I've gone almost a whole year without showing it. Or I could say that I'm making up for missing the chance to wear it back in August to celebrate the 26th anniversary of the discovery of the most complete known skeleton of Tyrannosaurus Rex. The date was 12 August 1990 and the place was the Hell Creek Formation near Faith, South Dakota. Sue Hendrickson, an amateur paleontologist, discovered the skeleton, and the displayed specimen at the Field Museum in Chicago is named Sue in her honor. If you don't accept either of those reasons for my tie, you will be in good shape to celebrate International Skeptics' Day, coming up on Thursday this week (I believe).
