Ooh, look! A bandwagon!

I love bandwagons. (What the hell is a bandwagon, anyway? Wikipedia says that the phrase was first used in 1848 during a political campaign, but we all know how reliable Wikis are…) Anyway, back to the important stuff. Instructions from Chuck: Use bold to indicate minerals you’ve seen in the wild. Italics is for those seen in laboratories, museums, stores, or other non field locations.

In other silliness, someone gave me this to put in my new apartment. I’ve been staring at it for hours now. It is so incredibly cheesy, but I can’t stop watching it. Yep, my brain is toast today. I do, however, love this thing. It’s the perfect time-waster for a volcanologist.
