Only people in the know so far. They'll be announcing it soon, I'm sure. The map is usually released in early July.
If everyone is special... no one is.

I do believe I will go to Burning Man...

I think we should let the Czechs and Finns name the streets......alternating between no vowels, and, 3 foot long words............

Crypto, what is the state fossil of Nevada? Every Nevada schoolboy knows this, must be a Nevada thing. I thought it was simple, apparently I was wrong. Icky park was near Austin, I think. The Great Basin was once a huge inland sea full of swimmers and bottom feeders that got stuck when pools finally dried up.

Caution Thread Drift!...What is the state mollocule of Texas? Buckyballs, C60. Spherical carbon structure named after Buckminster Fuller, other fullerites are similar but with more complex atomic structure and element composition.

Ok, back on topic. Why not list extinct species? I think I linked Wiki article about that last Winter when theme came out.

If all emergency type people were given decals for their windshields of the road system, I see no reason why the alphabetical system should be maintained. BM just keeps us stupid with structure (like coffee at CenterCamp) that makes it way too easy out there.

Ionosphere
Thermopause

WTF!

If you're going that route, then it's:

Inner Core
Outer Core
Mantle
Lithosphere
Crust
troposhpere
stratosphere
mesosphere
thermosphere
exosphere
It's going to be alright.

Okay, I googled and it's an icthasaur.

Something fishlike and yet I remain this board's exemplar of fishyness. And there is no equivelent for the California State Fossil (besides Arnie, of course.)
