The problem of a nonuniform distribution of muscovite-poor rocks (e.g., pure marble) would only exacerbate the mismatch between t * and z *. This may not be a problem for the samples from small basins, but the samples discussed here with large basins that include substantial proportions of the LHS may be not well sampled by the coarse muscovites used in most detrital studies. As discussed here, the technical necessity of restricting single-crystal analysis to coarse-grained muscovites (which are less common in the LHS in our observation) will bias the population toward the GHS and away from the LHS.

Although the statistical analysis of Table 3 suggests that only a few of the basins discussed here come close to a rigorous definition of a good fit between the distribution of elevation and muscovite ages, an inspection of Figure 6 shows that some fits are clearly better than others. Figure 6 offers a bootstrap confidence assessment by qualitatively checking how well the t * overlaps with the cloud produced by the 300 random samplings of the topography. The samples with the best statistics in Table 3 have a relatively good fit using this measure (samples Nar, Nyadi, S5, S12, and S37). The basins corresponding to these samples have areas that range from 180 to 1627 km 2 . One might expect this relationship to get worse with increasing basin area, but this is not the case, particularly for the six new samples reported here. The two samples from very small catchments (MO-50 and MO-81) fail the bootstrap measure of overlap over most of the range of t * and z *, but the two largest basins (corresponding to NAG-12 and MO-217) have t * that overlaps with the z * cloud about ¾ of the distribution for the CDF but do not overlap nearly as well for the PDP ( Figs. 6A, 6B ). The two medium-sized basins (Guy-2 and MO-139) have the worst correspondence ( Figs. 6C, 6D ). Rather than suggesting that the assumptions of Ruhl and Hodges (2005) are met better for big basins than for small, the better fit of z * and t * for the largest basins suggests an averaging over space (in particular over a range of elevations) and time not possible in small basins (see Gabet et al., 2008 ).

The overall poor correspondence between t * based on muscovite ages and z * in central Nepal suggests that the cooling from ∼400 °C to surface temperatures requires so much time (even at Himalayan erosion rates) that post–muscovite closure deformation of the region (even relatively small regions) will be a much stronger factor in the geographic distribution of muscovite ages than a simple age-elevation relationship. However, t * distributions based on other thermochronometers with lower closure temperatures such as zircon or apatite dated by either the fission track (FT) or (U-Th)/He method may give better and more-common correspondence to z *. In such cases, valuable and nuanced tectonic interpretations may be forthcoming. We do not mean to suggest that dating of modern detrital muscovites is without utility; far from it (see following). However, due to the high T c of Ar in muscovite, the instances in which one can do things such as calculate basin-wide erosion rates from the range of ages and the range of elevations seem to be the exception rather than the rule (see Braun, 2005 ).

I’ve got a funny story about how I managed to amuse myself.

A few years ago—actually, quite a few. It was in December, 2006—I was working on my textbook about how to make comics, Drawing Words Writing Pictures . I collaborated on it with Cinnabar Moth earrings Black Astley Clarke ZlglZgh
, my husband and fellow cartoonist, and we were working on a chapter about how to create characters.

There’s an activity in there we’d done many times in our classes, where you randomly choose a physical characteristic, a job, and an emotional characteristic, and then you put them together, and you build a character out of it.It’s funny, and fun, and it demonstrates definitively the power of juxtaposition—just put those non-aligned things together and your mind starts working. I can’t tell you how many students have gotten bizarre combos like “melancholy jockey who wears colored contacts…”

…and then gone on to actually love those characters and use them in stories.

Anyway, I had Matt give me keywords for two characters, so I could draw some illustrations for the activity in the book.

Here are the prompts Matt gave me:

…And I came up with a roller girl and a 7-legged Martian.

The second part of the assignment is to put the characters together into a scenario, and build a story structure. So I gamely put Trish Trash, my rollergirl, on Mars, and invented a wacky caper plot involving a stolen suitcase, and then drew another illustration to suggest that storyline. It was just an example for our textbook. I wasn’t trying to come up with anything deep.

But days later, I still felt myself drawn to the idea. On Christmas day, 2006, I jotted down a few notes:

Roller Derby is biggest Earth sport. But Mars is farm leagues – not competitive. Bad roads, too many rocks. Dust, wind. Can’t skate. No good arenas

Patricia lives in Tlaloc, dirt farmer. Grows spinach (popeye) curses lack of rain. Obsessed with RD, wants to go to Earth to join, strict immigration quotas. Loses dream somehow.

Buddy alphaCentauriian Mechanical genius, invents skates that blow air. Floats them.

Gary panter mars

Team: the Terror Novas.

town: terra nova. new earth. terrans—earth people. “terra formed.”

Farm machine breaks down. gets holo-image asking for help? Has to find old martian. Idea for skates. Gather girl gang at HS, side kicks (Wonder Woman). Practice w/ old shitty skates or no skates? Just running?

meanwhile, solve crime. Earth team concealing crime.

…that’s just goofy. clearly riffing on Star Wars and the silly illustration I’d done for the book.

martians use wheels – they’re uncool.. possibly based on mars lander, first time they saw them. Maybe have built-in wheels (biological?) It’s religious for them?
