The art of realizing meaningful coincidence in the seemingly mundane with mystical or esoteric significance."

Researchers just released maps that show Zealandia in unprecedented detail, revealing its shape and how it was formed millions of years ago
I wonder what future archaeologists will make of that You Tube of Mr. Crowe's above in years to come?-)
I've just got to let any future archaeologists know that Russ made a mistake by saying that a furphy is a mistake.
A furphy is a tall tale, or outright lie ... unless I'm mistaken:-)
I wonder if they heeded any "global warming" news stories back in the day?-)

UPDATE: June 28th, 2020
I just have to add that when I was watching Russell's on line Aussie/Kiwi slang class and he held up the word "knackered", I thought to myself that while we do use the word a lot, is it really our slang word?
Anyway, after thinking about it a bit I flicked through my "My List" on Netflix and saw the Irish show 'Derry Girls' which I had added to my list after hearing good things said about the show on 
'The Screen Show' podcast.
A discussion on Derry Girls with historian and super fan Clare Monagle
And in that first 'Derry Girls' episode they use the word "knackered":-)
So unless those Derry Girls are using Aussie/Kiwi slang I'd have to say that Russ is telling you all a furphy about the word "knackered" being an Aussie/Kiwi slang word:-)
And as for "chilly bins and eskys", just to play the devil's advocate and open a chilly can of worms for PC name change in this bonkers f#cked up modern world we all live in right now, "esky" is short for "Eskimo", for those who didn't know -
The term Esky derives from the word Eskimo
All Just Eskimo Pie in the Sky?
