Rocks are the Mind Killer

Fafblog on the geology of fear:

“Giblets is pretty sure this is basalt.”
“The basalt of fear, Giblets,” says me. “Which is the only kinda basalt we have to fear.”
“Crazy talk!” says Giblets. “Basalt is an extrusive igneous rock whereas fear is a clastic sedimentary! It is formed over thousands of years by the gradual process of erosion and deposit.”
“Particles of anxiety and paranoia get broken down through chemical an mechanical weathering,” says me. “Eventually they settle in river beds of dread, where horrifular pressure condenses them into geological fright.”
