The image on the left depicts the Great Salt Plains in Oklahoma. This area is (or at least used to be) open to the public and people (mostly kids) could come dig up the crystals, commonly called Salt Crystals, shown on the right. They may not be very spectacular, but it sure make a fun field trip.

Rent is a Broadway play, and now a film, based on the italian opera La Bohème. Rent depicts a late 1900's version of the Bohemian lifestyle/counterculter movement, as well as the social-economic struggles many faced during the time period, like AIDS, stigmas attached to homosexuality, and financial struggles. It's a great musical; I'd recommend it to everyone.
