Geology is Boring


, , ,

​Me: Geology is the most boring scientific study.

Eric: No, that’s not true. There are other things that are more boring.

Me: Name ONE.

Eric: Ummm… Theoretical astrophysics.

Me: Wrong. Know why? There’s lots of sci-fi written utilizing theoretical astrophysics, but not geology.

Eric: What are you talking about? Journey to the Center of the Earth!

Me: That had nothing to do with Geology! He went into the ground and found no geology. He found another world with oceans and stuff. It’s like Jules Verne went out to do research for his thrilling new geology story, dug a deep hole and said, “What do we have here? Well, gosh, that’s boring! Know what would be more interesting than this? ANYTHING!!!!”
