Today ‘Your Inner Rhino’ acknowledges Mr. James Hall, born in 1811. He was an influential Geologist and Paleontologist in the United States. A major contribution was his expertise in Stratigraphy, the study of geologic layering, which helped categorize fossil finds in the 19th century; the age of the rocks pinpointed the age of the remains.
Mr. Hall was greatly admired and held a variety of prestigious offices. Today would be his 206th birthday, in case you want to toss that into a conversation.
And yes, that is a Layer Cake… in his honor.
