Today were going to take a sci-adventure over to the La Brea Tar Pits! I’m moving out of this area soon to a new place where I can finally have a real permanent Nickipedia Lab!! So before I leave this part of town I wanted to show you this amazing science phenomenon, the La Brea Tar Pits!

What’s really interesting is that the “Tar” pits are actually asphalt pits. And that tar and asphalt are two different substances that come from two different sources. Tar comes from coal, and asphalt from crude oil.

Seeing the tar pits one day made me question why my apartment building always smelled like asphalt with some digging around and sleuthing I found out that the building I’m living on is RIGHT ON A TAR PIT!!! In fact the pit is still seeping up oil right in the basement! I wonder how many cool and amazing fossils are down there?
