That's not old

Given that different people have different view on what 'old' is, I thought I'd share this figure from my thesis.

I apologize to any tectonicists who may have wandered in here for describing the Braziliano Orogen (The South American correlate of the Pan-African; one of several continental suture events that led to the amalgamation of the Gondwanaland supercontinent) as 'cover'. But let's face it folks. Thrust sheets get in the way just as much as mud piles do.

So if it seems like I haven't updated my blog for a while, use these numbers to keep a perspective on things...

I will henceforth refer anyone who clamors for updates when I get behind to this post so they can get a clue about real time.
