「蕈」是菇的意思,顧名思義,這些岩石形似菇類,遠看又極像人頭或其他各種特殊形狀,第一區的海蝕平台是蕈狀岩家族成長的舞台,可看到許多個蕈狀岩在此活動而形成蕈狀岩林,在濕鹽分夜以繼日的侵蝕下,蕈狀岩的頸子越來越細。一旦頸子承受不了頭部的龐大重量,就會斷裂,結束蕈狀岩的ㄧ生。此外,颱風、地震和遊客隨意觸摸等都可能加速頸子的斷裂。

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
