brap: As a gynecologist, I understand completely.*eyebrow waggle*During an international gynecology conference, an English doctor and a French doctor were discussing unusual cases they had treated recently. "Only last week," the Frenchman said, "a woman came to see me with a clitoris like a melon!""Don't be absurd," the Brit exclaimed. "It couldn't have been that big... My God, man, she wouldn't have been able to walk if it were.""Aah, you English, always thinking about size," replied the Frenchman. "I was talking about the flavour!"
Makh: I can confirm that old geologists did this. My grandfather used to lick minerals. He could tell you the different lead and arsenic minerals from California. He's dead now.
gito: Is licking rocks gneiss? You breccia!
ZAZ: Suddenly I want to date a geologist.
sno man: that's gotta be a euphemism.
WhippingBoy: Rocks is a synonym for carpet.
Gyrfalcon: WhippingBoy: Rocks is a synonym for carpet.It's a synonym for stones, you moron.
Rozinante: gito: Is licking rocks gneiss? You breccia!Puns are so diabase.
rev. dave: At least until that rock or pool of water has some cyanide in it or some other equally lethal compound or microbe.
largedon: I was actually trained to tell the difference between siltstone and shale/mudstone by using your teeth. Your teeth are incredibly sensitive that way.Not sure about the whole mineral ID thing, but hey, whatever works for you./Yes I am a geologist.//Haven't licked and/or bitten any rocks in a long time.

EvilEgg: Isn't water a pretty stable compound.
Geologist: I take it for granite that this thread will be full if puns. While some may fault us geologists for that, I assure you it's normal for us to thrust in as many puns per post as possible. To offset this reality, I recommend you look into a joint.
Ivo Shandor: EvilEgg: Isn't water a pretty stable compound.No, water is being created and destroyed all the time. For example plants split off the oxygen during photosynthesis, using the hydrogen + CO2 to make sugars. Even in a sample of pure water the molecules don't stay together; they self-ionize into H+ and OH- and swap these around with neighboring molecules.

AndreMA: Licking rocks beats being an old-time physician where tasting the urine of your patients was an accepted diagnostic technique.
