Mount Everest

Ok, I am a geology geek watching the history channel about how Mount Everest was made. The top is limestone, the yellow band below it is marble and the base is granite. There are sea fossils at the top as it used to be underwater before India ran into Asia. It is still growing due to a India being forced underneath it. Gosh it's going to be even higher! After the rock of India get shoved underneath it gets hot and melty and rises up, up! Click here to see when it is on next so you can watch and learn stuff too. Does anyone besides Amy want to geek out with me about this? Oh I gotta go, they are going to tell me about the Grand Canyon now!
