However, this one's a gem!
You know, I heard that the geology department at MIT just isn't what it used to be; it's slated for removal.
All that I can say is that puns about geology are a diamond dozen.
Many geologists live a rather sedimentary lifestyle.
Are you bored yet? I have way Moh if you want.
... time to get your schists together.
While learning about atoms, my instructor said that covalent bonds were the strongest bonds. I said, "I always thought Sean Connery was the strongest Bond." So many groans. I could feel the eye rolls. I love being the old guy in class.
i’m new to this subreddit 🏃🏽♀️
My favorite class is geology. I love that class. Geology rocks.
It knew how to rock before it was cool.
They’re called stoners for a reason, you know.
Because if the are I've got some pretty gneiss ones but most them are schist. If so, I won't take this opportunity for Granite.
My sediments are with his family.
I don't give a schist.
I'm trying to become a rockstar.
But, honestly, Geography is where it’s at.
...because he thinks geology rocks
I think I’d do well because I keep discovering a new rock bottom.
My sister teaches at a high school for children with learning and behavior disorders, and every year she hosts a skills summer camp.
2015 will be geology-themed, and we need help thinking of a fun name for the camp.
Previous years: 2014 Summer Scenarios: Little Egypt (Egyptian themed) 2013 Summer Scenarios (first year had no kitchy name, but it was zombie-themed)
Potential examples: Stone Throne, Rock Steady, Taken for Granite, etc.
During the live-in camp (boarding school), they'll learn survival/outdoorsmanship skills (fire starting, gardening, canoeing, etc.), and have geologists as guest speakers.
Any high school learning-friendly geology-themed blockbusters would be welcome suggestions, too--but I'll post that for the people over at /r/movies.
Thanks in advance!
Edit: Thanks to everyone who actually gave appropriate suggestions, and high-fives to those who just made rock puns. My sister selected Game of Stones.
They approach a table displaying a wide assortment of rocks. The chemist points in the booth's direction and asks the miner, "Which is your favorite; cinnabar or cassiterite?" The miner thought for a moment and replied, "Either ore."
I'll see myself out.
but sometimes I come up with a gem.
I guess I'm taking these easy 100s for granite.
Teacher: tomorrow we will be learning about waste management, it's going to be a rubbish lesson.
I'm still groning.
Roommate "I have been studying these three pages of notes on geological formations. It's so tedious."
Me "Yes, but, would you say that the information is rock solid?"
My girlfriend was visibly upset.
Because it had a sediment impediment.
Us having a pure hear-say conversation until this point:
Him: "Yeah, no, suicide rates are definitely going up in celebrities. They were awhile before Robins died actually."
Him: "Yeah. Just recently, some girl stabbed herself in her trailer's kitchenette. She was in Walk the Line, blonde blue eyes an-"
Me: "Reese Witherspoon?"
Him: "No, with a knife."
You win this time.
So I can be a rockstar
There were so many great shales!
You are on your way of becoming a genius about igneous rocks.
What happened to the mid ocean ridge in the back alley? It was basalted.
When people ask a question he doesn't know the answer to, usually not a geology question, he answers "elephants and rhinos". When elephants and rhinos combine they make elephinos. Which sounds like "hell if I know". I giggle every time
Quizzing each other back and forth GF: "What is the definition of an intrusive rock?" Me: "You know, one of those rocks who's always in your personal business. Really annoying, kind of a drag to be around." GF: Blank stare
So my dad and are touring a college in Rapid City, South Dakota, and we drove past a Geology Museum. He casually pointed it out as we had not noticed it before. I waited a few seconds, fully expecting a Geology rocks joke, but he was silent. I asked him why he didn't make a joke, as he is notorious for awesome dad jokes, and he looked at me and said, "I was going to but I felt like I was stuck between a rock and a hard place." I just looked at him and gave him a fist bump. This is going to be a great trip.
Talking to my dad about how I felt about my geology final, I go on about how boring the class was and that the kids that are actually geology majors are stereotype hippies. Smell weird, barefoot, dreads, Coachella lovers.. etc.
He seems to ignore everything as I can see his smile forming then as soon as I stop talking...
"They probably get stoned all the time too."
