    When religious people say that they have a spiritual experience when they enter in the church, I think they mean what I feel when I enter in a museum like this

    Kallie always looks so happy to be wherever she is. She's a great interviewer because her positive energy rubs off on her guests. It's really inspiring to see people excited and passionate about their work.

    It's hilarious watching these two nerd out over their jobs. I'll have to stop by MoR on my way back from Glacier this summer. Bozeman, beer and bones.

    Has anybody ever thought about how we would completely lose stuff like this (forever as a species) in the event of a nuclear war? I don't know why I thought of that, it just dawned on me. And I'm sure every little town all around the world has some "thing" that is special to our history (as a species) that we would permanently lose should anyone ever use nukes on someone. I don't know why I just thought of that. I guess because it would be sad to see something like this be lost forever.

    My dream job. I’m planning on majoring in geology or biology and minoring in paleontology when I start university soon.

    Can you please do a video on the Eurypterids!? I don't think you've even mentioned them so far!

    Royal Tyrrell Museam in the Alberta Badlands would be choice. Maybe get an up-close look at the nodosaur!

    I love watching these professional educational videos that seem to be more and more rare on YouTube

    Since "eons" involves more than animals, I think it would be cool to do a video on the dynamic earth itself -- maybe elevation changes that put primordial sea-salt deposits in Utah and the Himalayas, for example. I have cooked with some 300+ myo salt, and both the taste and the idea of it were somehow sweeter. In this, we are connected to raw elements that are not only ancient, but perhaps eternal :)

    I would love to take a road trip there! Best storage place ever! Well. Next to the rock core library in Marquette Michigan.

    I would like to see Eons go out to an active fossil dig site and show how amazing the process of discovery is.
    Also, I would really like an episode showing the progression of dinosaur species across time on different continents.

    Hey! I've been learning about evolution in my biology class, and now I'm curious about the evolution of horses. My teacher said that horse fossils are fairly having a complete evolutionary record, and that's kinda interesting! I wish u can make a brief summary of this topic, and is there any other animals that also have a complete evolutionary record?

    Speaking of Triceratops, a video on the Torosaurus Triceratops situation would be nice.
