I'm looking at "The Smithsonian Guide to Fossils," filled with beautiful, precise photographs. I'm thinking about fossil fuels.

The guidebook doesn't include microscopic fossils, which is what fossil fuels are, but the fossils in the guide, brachpods, dinosaur bits, look very old to me and blowing up that much stuff that's that old really fast is weird and presumptuous. It can't end well.
