This better be a summary of a Serious Screenplay.

Good. I never liked New Zealand.

Pumice is made from lava and water and is very lightweight, so it poses no danger to ships. Pumice has a variety of uses: as an ingredient in concrete, polishes and scrubbing cleaners; to stone wash jeans and exfoliate skin.



I always thought it was a weird crossbreed of pumas and mice.

That's it, I'm going to make a ship of rocks, just to flip out the squares.

Seriously New Zealand, you need to start sacrificing virgins to different gods. Better gods. Gods that do not want to kill you all in a variety of horrible and painful ways.

It is approximately 100 million cubic hummingbirds, so you'll have to do the conversions from there.

Well that is one joojooflop situation, right there.

brap: That's it, I'm going to make a ship of rocks, just to flip out the squares.


Granddad, in the course of his long and adventurous life once took a job to salvage a ship that had sunk off the coast of S. America after running aground and ripping its bottom out. The Plan was to fill the bottom of the ship with concrete, pump the water out and and sail it back to NYC Harbor. A damn fine plan actually, except this was the early 1930's and so there were no weather satelites to warn him of the giant hurricane that had blown up and was headed directly for him and his ship.

Thanks to great sailing, and heroic work by the engineers in keeping the pumps operational, they did make their contract and return the ship to safe anchorage in NY Harbor-but only because the contract failed to specify safe anchorage ABOVE the water. Granddad and the chief engineer were rescued from the bridge about five minutes before it completely submerged.

Authorities have warned ships to steer clear of the area or be scrubbed clean of barnacles, rust, old paint, and/or calluses.

I came here to ask that same question. @!$@%ing metric system...

Subby gets the Fox News Journalism School Gold Star for that headline.

FTFA: "A mass of small volcanic rocks nearly the size of Belgium has been discovered floating off the coast of New Zealand. The stretch of golf-ball-size pumice rocks ... "

The group of rocks is about the size of Belgium. The actual rocks themselves are the size of golf balls.

I clicked expecting to hear about something out of Armageddon. Subby fail.

Now New Zealand women will have no excuse for calloused feet.

Sweet, New Zealand should navigate all their ships through area to scrub the barnacles off their hulls.

Witchyman: Very small rocks!


That line always bothered me. If you crush a rock into dust, it's still a "rock", albeit a very small one. Dust will float.

Well, that's nice. I'll put it in my diary.

Ah, so YHWH, Jesus and Allah are out. Where'd Aphrodite go?

What I want to know is which is bigger, Belgium or NZ?

Which would be pointless if they cannot stop the cultists near New Orleans.

stone washed jeans

I'm sure that reference was lost on most Farkers

You take your east coast commie pinko measurements and get out of here. Real 'Mericans measure things in football fields

It is highly abrasive and I'd bet that it wreaks hell on water pumps used for engine coolant, not to mention hull and propellor abrasion.

/Even a small amount of airborne pumice destroys a jet engine.

Wouldn't it be preferable to slam the actual country of Belgium into NZ? Kill two birds with one stone, so to speak.
Not that I even believe Belgium exists.
