What Is The Strangest Fossil Ever Named? Today We Dig Up A Few Along With The Most Expensive Dessert.

Welcome to October 14, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate weird names and wild desserts.

The discovery of fossils is an ongoing treasure hunt and their discovery both inspires and informs us.  They often reveal missing links between our modern world and life on earth billions of years ago.  The best way to preserve this link is by naming them something that will stick in our minds instead of boring old Latin names that get left on a shelf.  Here are some of the more memorable. The fossil of a 15 million year old snake with giant teeth: Montypythonoides riversleighensis.  And how about the extinct moth named Carmenelectra shechisme.  Okay that guy was just dreaming.  On National Fossil Day dig up some cool facts of your own about the weird science that continues to teach us from the dust.  

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the most expensive dessert in the world is The Frrrozen Haute Chocolate ice cream sundae from the restaurant Serendipity 3. This frozen dessert is made with a blend of the 14 priciest cocoas and 23-karat gold flakes.  It’s served in a goblet lined with edible gold. But wait—there’s more!  If you order this confection, you get to keep the goblet, the tennis bracelet that’s wrapped around the base, and the gold spoon! And all for the low, low—I mean ridiculous price of $25,000! In case you’re wondering, the previous record for the most expensive dessert was a mere $1,000. Talk about inflation! On National Dessert Day treat yourself to something delicious and don’t be afraid to go over the top!
