The Adventures of Adam Atom – Never Get Caught in a Cud!

All right, gang – it’s time once again to hang onto your hadrons, fasten your safety quarks, buckle up your buckeyballs, and here is, in real spacetime continuum – (may I have a Big Bang, please) …

The ONE – the Only – the I Am that I Am atomically and anatomically smashing-

Adam Atom!

Hey great to be back! If you remember last week’s episode, I had just survived the killer asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs 65 million yearsago. Quite the earth event that was!

asteroid hits earth 1

asteroid hits earth 2

So anyway, I hung around in the atmosphere for like, millions and millions of years. Sun spot flares would zap me in a skip zone radio transmission, bouncing me in and out of the solar system. I can tell you stories, and will, of forays into other galaxies and different planetary systems. But oh, about 14,000 years ago I was back in earth’s atmosphere. I hung around for a couple thousand years and then I was getting pretty bored and figured what the heck, how about catching a wind drift down and see how things were on the earth’s surface again.

So I made it down to Siberia, which at the time was a very pleasant place, nice and temperate, and I bonded with a blade of grass. Well wouldn’t ya know it, along comes a Woolly Mastadon who trunks my blade into his mouth and was about to chew me into its cud, when all of a sudden-

Wooooooshhh – whiizaaaAAPP!

Along comes a mega-subzero arctic wind andfrozen mastadon ol’ Woolly Baby is frozen stiff! In mid chew!

The Old Silly tells me that living in contemporary Michigan the weather is subject to temperature and condition swings at the drop of a hat, but good grief – that was ridiculous! A balmy mid-70’s afternoon and all of a sudden it’s colder than a frozen arctic realm of hell!

But I got outa there in time. Fortunately. Nothin’ worse than being caught in an ice cud. The wind blew me free, thank goodness, and I got swept along to another …

Nah, not gonna spoil it. Blog in again next Monday, and I’ll have for y’all the next exciting episode in the continuing-

Adventures of Adam Atom!

    Loved this episode. I remember reading about the Mastadons and their frozen plight during the sudden onset of the last ice age. Freaky!

    Hey! Adam left us hanging!

    How about coming to Yellowstone Park and stirring things up. You can blast right through Old Faithful.

    Dear Adam Atom,

    That was cold leaving us hanging like that.

    Very, very cold.

    Lucky Adam Atom. That missed cud could have been the end of a molecular regeneration. 🙂

    Oh I LIKE this! I’ll be back next Monday…GEEZ! Really gotta wait that long ‘eh? 🙂

    I’m so glad Adam Atom was blow away because being stuck in an ice cud sounds pretty gross to me.:)

    Good thing ya went out in an ice cube because had not he suddenly become an ice statue, you could have gone out the other end, yuck. At least you had a nice cool trip. See ya next week.

    Another great episode. Does Adam Atom ever just sit and read a book? He sure gets around.

      Helen, he would read, but there’s not much in print that appeals to his age bracket. Omnipresent Omniscient Lit hasn’t caught on yet. (wink)

    Recently, there was a PBS (?)…maybe Discovery Channel…special about excavating the remains of a WM. It was pretty interesting stuff.

    Best Regards, Galen

      I saw that one too, Galen – great show.

    Yo dude, yo yo YO! How ya gonna leave us hangin’ like this, Adam? LOL – Fun episode, Marv!

    Why didn’t the Mastadons simply use a wormhole to escape? No wonder they’re extinct. They must not have been the brightest crayons in the box. BTW, I’m originally from Michigan, so I understand the quick and dynamic weather changes.

    I see that you are up on your quarks today…wink, wink!

  15. NA Sharpe / Aug 31 2009 9:42 pm

    Great episode – that Atom sure gets around! Wonder what he’ll be up to next. Can’t wait for next week to see!

    I was hoping it was Madagascar. I need some music with a serious beat! Now I’m feeling a bit cold. Hum….I wonder why.
