. . . I've been told that I write novels for email messages. Perhaps this is the way to go. I'll try to make each entry, or Gemstone, a "precious" one. On mediocre days, all I might be able to produce is a "semi-precious" entry. In any case, an entry might be a "neat" Gemstone--something that is uniquely mine.

Do Geologists Need Math?

I just had to laugh at this Calvin and Hobbes comic strip when I saw it in the book, Structural Geology (by Pollard & Fletcher), and wanted to share it here.
Number 1:  I sure didn't use all that much math when I was working as a geologist, just water well or sample depth calculations.

Number 2:  What do you mean "Geologist" isn't really a job!!!

Thanks for sharing the link, but unfortunately it seems to be down... Does anybody have a mirror or another source? Please reply to my post if you do!

I would appreciate if a staff member here at neatgemstones.blogspot.com could post it.

This is my post and it comes up just fine for me. It is of a Calvin and Hobbes comic with a little bit of commentary about it. I don't know why you can't see it.
