One’s too many and a hundred ain’t enough.
Someone should write an Abyss/Supernatural crossover where Dean is the leader of an underwater oil drilling crew, Sam is his right hand man (and also the brains of the operation who designed the rig), and Jimmy is the Navy SEAL sent in to investigate strange readings coming from the nearby trench.
Only instead of a submarine and an unhinged lieutenant with a warhead, there’s actually an angel in the trench. And Jimmy goes to investigate and returns possessed by a weakened Cas. And Dean has to decide what to do about their new guest—did Jimmy lose his mind after a dangerously deep dive? Or was there really something alien at the bottom of the trench that now possesses his friend? Topside wants to destroy whatever’s down there, so Dean doesn’t have much time to choose who to believe.
Protip: This is a really bad question to ask when visiting the National Mall. We have 8 buildings surrounding the Mall, and a total of 19 museums, 9 research centers and the National Zoo. A S.H.I.E.L.D agent should know better!
(We think she means the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in this case.)
I love that this is on the Smithsonian’s tumblr

When God is gone and the Devil takes hold; who will have mercy on your soul? No wealth, no ruin, no silver, no gold; nothing satisfies me but your soul.O Death.
A 110 million-year-old fossil of Cleoniceras ammonite, found in Madagascar. Ammonites are extinct cephalopods that lived in shells. Their closest modern relatives are nautiluses, octopi, squid, and cuttlefish. Like the nautilus, ammonites gradually added onto their shell to accommodate their increasing body mass. As they extended the shell they built a wall behind them, closing up the now too-narrow portion of the shell as they moved into the larger portion of the spiral.
Unlike the nautilus, the morphology of the tissue wall ammonites built between the chambers is not just a smooth curved wall. Instead it has a bizarrely complex 3-dimensional fractal shape. These are called “suture patterns” and mark the intersection of the septum walls with the shell. Scientists can’t agree why these walls are so complexly furrowed or even how they formed.
