Humm ... Nat'l Geo ... that would be the same outfit that a few years ago published an issue of their famous mag claiming proof of evolution. The proof? ... electricity. Seriously, they claimed that since electricity was still a theory ... no one has actually proved what it is, so it goes with evolution -- evolution is real and will never be proven. So sez the Nat'l Geo. I walked away from Nat'l Geo after that and never looked back.

If I am around a TV that gets it there are some programs on the Nat'l Geo channel I like to watch.

A tattoo. It happened during a brief moment of stupidity.

That show is based on the same people that want to skydive from Space,
enter the Earth atmosphere and open a parachute and fall on the ground safely,
at least if they have a titanium cage to enter it might be possible...

The title is misleading.

It's a history of lakes formation and other cool stuff.

Just off Mackinac Island, a survey ship and divers have found what they think is an ancient waterfall.

They found a straight 400' drop and caves.

I enjoyed the show.

My sounder right up against Mackinac Island goes from 40' to 300' in about 50 yards.

I watched the show and it was interesting. 7500 years ago the lakes were much lower with many land bridges, the weather was much dryer and the lake levels so much lower they were hardly connected.

Right after that program Sunken river Boats of the Yukon was on.
It too was amazing.

Yep. Enjoyed Yukon paddle wheel show.

Especially the part where the 100 year old rudders still worked.
