Damned straight. You can spot a geologist by their rock collection. They lack beach pebbles and shiny chunks of quartz, partly because they never collect them but mostly because they are devoured by the more agressive specimens.

Speak to us of crystal energy and we will introduce you to pitchblende and thorianite.

What a treat to find another geologist here. Smile My undergraduate degree is in geology, structural and rock mechanics.

When I moved east from Denver, I put my rock collection in three boxes. I thought the movers would be using a dolly, but they tried to lift them. One groused, "Whatcha got in here? Rocks?" Uhhh, Blush
I didn't tell him I had a small sample of carnotite from Utah in there in a lead lined box.

I think we need more cake.

I'll call the caterers.

If only we had a way of ordering more provisions on-line somehow...

This looks like a good place.

We're all earth scientists to one degree or another. The ones who aren't die young. Wink

Thanks for the welcome. Big Grin
