Thanks for the berries.

What would it feel like to touch this?

Hm. The first image I thought Birch tree.

Then the second one looks like something man made...

Concrete? They look like prefab building or bridge/road panels.


Or, Gilmer got in my head.

You got it, trach.

What do you see? I just want to touch it.

How about Japanese katana steel?


But not my turn anymore....

There are cartoon faces in the center stripe. Zoom in a little.

Katana steel is like Damascus steel. The blade isn't forged. It's formed by repeatedly folding the metal. That's what forms the "grain". Layers and layers.

trach, I'm afraid I cheated. I'm so ashamed of myself! I thought for sure you'd renamed the image. Anyway, I have to bow out of this one.

Nice feller

Least, that pufferfish creation is one of the most astonishing things I’ve ever seen in my life!
