That my friend, is as cool as hell. Is the dent at the bottom natural...ish or from using a pick hammer to excavate?


In the time honored tradition rock nerds everywhere, I hit it with my rock hammer. And thanks, I thought it was pretty nifty too. Bonus, I got to hit something with my rock hammer!

Man, this shift that I am on sucks for Farktography. Left home at 6 PM Easters, and just got home now. And I can not access the Fark forums at work, they are blocked, although the main page is not. Hmmm.
