So I'm studying geology right now in prep for a test tomorrow....

Ch 5 of this book has a section call "Ash Falls in it".

The first sentence derailed me. "Roman naturalist and historian Gaius Plinius (Pliny the Elder, born A.D. 23)"...

Right there ADD set in..

And he apparently coined the phrase "In wine there is truth."

Geology ain't so bad after all.

I hate when I'm brewing outside and ash from a nearby volcano falls in it.

Stick with the studies, and you too can be a geologist like me!

Man... I want to share that uncyclopedia entry with my geology professor, but he looks like he might be a little uptight so maybe after the semester is over and grades are final.

You better believe it, I have a geology degree and I can't think of anything better than to use my degree to make beer.
