Charting 2012’s Top Cultural Obsessions
You can’t talk 2012 without talking GIFs: the year’s cultural superstar, the Oxford American Dictionary’s word of the year, and the means by which the internet shared its obsessions (and we all know the internet really likes to obsess). From the GIF to politics to the apocalypse to Honey Boo Boo, the guys from I Love Charts bring you the year’s top cultural obsessions — in GIF form, of course.
2012 was a year where major issues dominated the global narrative. Mainly we talked about the election and zombies.

is a species of hummingbird found exclusively in the Rio-Utcubamba region of Peru. They are medium sized (for a hummingbird) growing up to 6 in long. The name Spateuletail is due to the birds two marvelous tail feathers that look like discs or a spatula. They are endangered due limited population size as they only occur in one small region in Peru.
White dots mark unconformity.
Note the apparently differently dipping beds above and below (we’ll know if it’s true dip when Curiosity gets closer).
This marks a gap in deposition, an age difference, not to mention tectonic uplift. As a first guess I’d say this is related to mountain building, there was uplift and erosion between layer 1 (base) being deposited and layer 2 (top) being deposited. Before further tilting affected both layers resulting in the configuration we now have.
This is a fake unconformity, the overlying beds show a apparent inclination, this can be explain it with a deposition following a slope … by the other side the underlying beds are subhorizontal, showing no tectonic activity. Clearly this is not a evidence a tectonic process on Mars, but we have to keep looking =).
PD: to the NASA people, as we say in my country (Chile): baker to his cakes (pastelero a sus pasteles).
