The Geo/Pun/Holmes Trifecta

Okay, granted, this takes off on the teevee/movie Holmes, not the book Holmes, but it’s still fun.

I’d love to talk forensic geology with Sherlock Holmes. If I get to kick around in an alternate universe, and can’t get to the one with The Doctor, that’s the universe I want to be in. Can some mad scientist somewhere please oh please make it so?

    That rock is so simplified and minimalist that I’m thinking it may more likely be metaphoric.

    I don’t think I want to be The Doctor’s companion. As Rory pointed out in the Series 5 episode I watched last night (Vampires! In Venice!) the doctor is a danger to anyone around him, by making them a danger to themselves.

    OOOH! Just realized Lockwood said “metaphoric”! Good one.

    Excuse me for barging into this pun-fest, but I was wondering if Dana had seen the current highlyallochthonous blog. It is worth a look

    ‘Slate here, you know, so I’ll scree ya laterite? Sweet drumlins, I’m off to bedding, gotta 9mohs job on my tectonic, could be an anticline though.

    And… now I’ve got Ian Tamblyn’s ‘The Ballad of Mica and Magma’ going through my head. Played that one for a geologist friend of mine just so I could watch his facial expression during the hurricane of puns…

    Oooh, just did a Google search, and there’s a sequel as well, ‘The Ballad of Mica and Kim Berlite’, along with a whole ‘Epic Rockj’ CD of geology music. Well, I know what I’m listening to tonight.
