Rocks & Minerals B/C ID/Question Marathon

Post by Jim_R » August 28th, 2013, 8:36 pm

ID Thread and Question Marathon for Rocks & Minerals B/C.
-The path of the Administrator is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

-Nothing\'s gonna get deleted. We\'re gonna be like three little Fonzies here. And what\'s Fonzie like? Come on, what\'s Fonzie like?
-Cool?
-Correctamundo. And that\'s what we\'re gonna be. We\'re gonna be cool. Now, I\'m gonna count to three, and when I count three, you let go of your mouse, and back away from the keyboard. But when you do it, you do it cool. Ready? One... two... three.

Thanks! I was gonna show "2014" through calcite to show birefringince/ double refraction, but it wasn't showing up very well :|

And yes, you're right! Here's to a long and thriving marathon of rocks and minerals questions! I'm glad the admins created a special place for these.
