Do some geologists actually act a lot like Randy Marsh?

    Or in other words, are a lot of geologists pretty crazy and funny at the same time?

    I'm getting this sense just by looking at the presentations of the geologists at the Yale Geology & Geophysics open house. It makes me wish that people in other fields had the same sense of humor that geologists have - haha.

    I found when I was doing my geology degree that people in that field were reasonably laid back.

    cheers

    lol ya nutter hahaha

    those "clouds" is the steam and fumes coming up from the lava going into the ocean
    that was my trip to Hawaii then on to the mainland USA in 1999

    One of the best experiences of my life.

    it is super hot 1000C or so, I was right beside it, my friends and I were even using sopup ladels etc to scoup up the lava, very difficult ... like very thick treakle (molassus)
