A Little Geologic Humor


It's been well over a year since I indulged in a little geologic humor.
If nobody gets these but me, at least I had a lot of laughs picking them out.






































































































































And last, one for my brother, the engineer, from his sister, the geologist:

    1. I had to put that one in because of my engineer brother. I like to tease him. My grandfather MacBeath was a civil engineer, so I think he would have gotten a kick out of it. Have a great weekend, my friend!

  2. haha that rock being held up by the sticks wouldn't inspire confidence for me to go under it. My ocd would have to fix the library book shelves eventually.

  4. Ha ha ha! Thanks for the laughs!

    My favorites are the library shelves, the ark, the evolution one, and the dinosaur with the spaceship. :)

  5. I know a job I would never do because that looks more terrifying than stressful.

    1. I agree that that shovel operator job is terrifying. I've had to be rescued from the side of several cliffs during my life, sobbing I have to admit. I couldn't even watch that shovel job being done, and I love to watch construction work. All the best to you, Diane!

    1. Watch out for cassowaries, Adam! They can kill! They are the closest we have to raptors at this time.
