That's awesome! My totally unscientific comic inspires the pursuit of actual science! :D If you'd like to post (or just send me an email) later about your dig experience I'd love to hear about it. I'll be going to the nearby mammoth dig site (link: http://www.cwu.edu/~masters/mammoth.html
) again this summer, but I've never participated in anything like that.
Also, @ John, I'll have to post up another chapter or two at KidJutsu, I wasn't sure if anyone was really reading it there or not! Thanks for letting me know!
