Okay, if you are a real geologist, you probably enjoy transferring geology vocabulary into everyday situations. For example, if you agree with what someone has said, you may say, You breccia! or My sediments exactly!
And if you are not pleased with the person’s statement, you may resort to the old:
That’s not gneiss!
1) You judge a restaurant by the type of decorative building stone they use rather than their food.
2) You manage to turn any conversation into a discussion of geology, as in:
”What did you think of that Superbowl game last night?”
”I must have missed that conference. Who sponsored it? Geological Society of America?”
3) The only thing you notice about attractive members of the opposite sex is the stone in their jewelry.
4) You refuse to let nightfall stop your field excursions and continue looking at the outcrops using the headlights of your field vehicle.
5) You like rock music only because it’s called ”rock” music.
6) You will try to claw through the water flowing in a stream to get a better look at the bedrock at the base of the channel.
7) You will walk across eight lanes of freeway traffic to see if the outcrop on the other side of the highway is the same type of rock as the side you’re parked on.
8) You name your children after rocks and minerals.
9) You’re not sure if you have children.
10) You view non-geologists as subhuman.
