    Hamelin pool in Shark Bay WA has some very cool stromatolites which are very very old.

    Now Siberia permafrost thaw has made a freaky one. Microscopic animals which were frozen when woolly mammoths walked the earth are back. Bet they might be a little hungry after not eating for 24,000 Years

    The worry is, it's not just micro-animals that are thawing but viruses, pathogens, bacteria's, that we might have no immunity to.

    Life is just a series of obstacles preventing you from taking a nap.
