The Billion-Year-Old Curb Bulbout
Jack Lackey reports on the curious case of a billion-year-old boulder that's sitting at the corner of a busy intersection in Toronto.
"Anyone who has travelled along Bloor St., west of Spadina Ave., may have spotted a massive boulder at the southwest corner of Boor and Major Sts. and wondered why it’s there," writes Lackey. "The rock was excavated during construction that has made Bloor a challenge for drivers and pedestrians this year, and deposited exactly where motorists who want to head south onto Major make a right turn."
Lackey's sympathies clearly lie with drivers, not the rock.
