Hi all, I came across this excellent forum today and decided I would join. I somehow stepped into the world of geology one and a half years ago and realized that although I am not the most intelligent person ever, this is what I want to center my attention on and understand.  I am now a second year student at a college in PA and am just trying to learn more about this field. I have already pretty much mentioned this, but again - this site is awesome!! So that's my little bio - just thought we should become acquainted  [O8)]

Hellooooo & welcome to TNS. Your screen name puts me in mind of my Mrs. She has a certain affinity to gemstones.

I'm sure you will enjoy delving through the strata of the forum and will doubtless come across the odd fossil or two!

Who are you calling odd, turtle-man?

We are just well-aged specimens of dignified geologist here and are  pleased to welcome our brother, gemlove, to the proceedings of the naked geologist group.

Welcome GL!

If you could remember where you left your bifocals JB you might be able to see that gemlove is not a brother. Probably left them beside your hearing trumpet. I said probably left them beside your hearing trumpet! Sheesh!

Although I am using a rather old meaning of "brother" - as in "brotherhood" I do not automatically check whether a new member is male or female. I am not that much of a troll. This guy is.

I ask, what does it say of a person to make such a distinction? It says that the Geezer is a sexist pig, that's what!!!

I am sorry, gemlove, that you should be so grossly exposed to the underbelly of life on the web. It does reflect poorly on this renegade refugee from the wilds of the mountains. Please excuse this poor troll, er, person. It is not representative of this forum!

What about our new member? Are we this crass?????


OH, THE IGNOMINY OF IT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gemlove, - go ahead and insult someone. Then you will fit in with these mental midgets. I, the Scion of Geology, will protect you.

Put your Bippy away. I warned you about flashing it in public before.

Well as far as I know, I am indeed a woman. But I am not offended that someone thought otherwise! I just hope you found your glasses [;)] I apologize for the delay of a reply - I have been out conquering my life from now forward -cringe- outcrops. Delighted to come back to a nice welcome though!!
