Hmm, just learned something. It's good day.

So, 16, how many rocks have you managed to set on fire or clog your toilet with?
Thanks for clearing up my queries about quaries.

Keith, I went backpacking in New Mexico and was advised to crap under large rocks to keep from animals rooting through it and eating it. Does this hurt the rock's feelings?

Another time I was camping and threw a rock down at a tree and my friend walked out from behnd the tree and it smacked him in the head. My friend was fine but did we need to get the rock medical help?

I did my masters thesis in Franciscan Group. I have several of the cherts and serpentinites, and a reall awesome pillow basalt altered to greenstone.

Btw, fun fact of the day: Serpentinite is what they make asbestos out of.

LOL

Geologists are 'scientists' with unnatural obsessions with beer and rocks. Often too intelligent to do monotonous sciences like biology, chemistry, or physics, geologists devote their time to mud-worrying, volcano poking, fault finding, bouldering, dust-collecting, and high-risk colouring. One of the main difficulties in communicating with geologists is their belief that a million years is a short amount of time and their heads are harder than rocks. Consequently, such abstract concepts as "Tuesday Morning" and Lunchtime are completely beyond their comprehension. (This difficulty generates problems particularly when dealing with the girlfriend/boyfriend/spouse and attempting to explain why you were "gone for so long" or why something is taking "so long to occur.")

The rock will get warmer. Unless it has metallic minerals in it, and then it will spark, and potentially hatch dinosaurs that will trash your house.

The rock was attacking him as revenge for your defecation.

Yes, it is. It's recycled from what used to be solid rock, and is now weathered down to dirt and dust by various erosional processes.

You can compress Rock, but not water....therefore, water is harder....

actually, "hardness" is the resistance of a rock to being scratched. You are thinking of the poissons ratio of the two materials. Water has a higher poissons ratio, meaning it translates deformation in one dimension to the other two dimensions rather easily.

Yes, but be sure you get your pet rock from a reputable geologist, make sure it did not come from a pet rock mill. Usually those rocks are treated, and because they deal with so many rocks, you never really know if it truly is moss agate or phiroza agate or some sort of mix.

Why is this even a question, it is clearly better to be stuck between a rock and a soft place.

Let's stick to real questions please, not ones that common sense could give you a simple answer for.
