I do not believe in global warming, so I'm refusing to answer either of these questions.

We've already been over this. The part west of the San Andreas fault is moving northward, and eventually LA will be next to SF. And the parking will be beyond awful, and bros will, like, totally ruin the Norcal vibe, man. It's a total bummer.

When Nibiru collides with the Earth in December of this year , will the Earth assimilate the geological matter formally known as Planet X ?

That would depend on how big this Nibiru is. We'll just have to see when it magically appears out of thin air at some point.

There seems to be a distinct lack of actual answers in this thread , more like misdirection and avoidance , and I think that pushes it dangerously close to political in nature

Perhaps a ban is in order

Well, there's a ton of serpentinite up there. Pictures of hazmat suited and masked EPA folks riding bikes through kid's parks made the front page. Lots of hysteria ensued.

Samples from Marin Headlands and Mt. Tamalpais:

Been to the Marin Headlands many times.

If they had just asked a geologist they wouldn't have needed hazmat stuff. The dangerous typeof serpentinite is alled Crysotile Serpentinite, which I can tell from the picture that that is not.

Crysotile is the fibrous form of serpentinite, pictured below.

I'll take this one Keith, I think a good piece of limestone, does some pretty good damage and if thrown hard enough it will break into pieces to reduce evidence.

Chert would be an excellent choice, as it can easily be sharpened to your desired level of danger.

Another good choice. It also dissolves in HCL so while you are destroying other evidence with acid, a la Breaking Bad (although that was HF), the rock will vanish

I'll take this one too. It depends on the distance you are throwing said rock. Anything of less than 15 feet, there will not be enough resistance to affect the trajectory of the rock (unless you throw like a girl then you may want to consider an aerodynamic rock on anything over 6 inches).
