"Just stopped to see some dinosaur tracks, they were really awesome.  Both the
impressions and the negative 'bas-relief' on two adjacent rocks.  A chance occurence, all of
the biases of fossilization working in favor, the moment after the dinosaur ambled over
mud, until the present, millions of years later.  The biases of what is fossilized, how it is
preserved, and the chance that it is revealed."
