In what order do you stash your rocks?
October 9, 2019

I don’t remember much of what I supposedly learned in my civil engineering classes, but I’ll never forget one presentation our geology teacher gave us. He was showing us slides of various rock formations (I know, try to contain your excitement) when (perhaps in an effort to wake us up from all the excitement we weren’t feeling, either) he showed us the photo of a sign off the side of a mountain.

“Beware of falling rock,” it said.

No kidding.

The sign was mangled from an avalanche.

That was the beginning and the end of my interest in rocks, until I heard this story.
