As some one who is fascinated by Geology to the point that it even persuades my humor it was great to see a movie with some geology humor in to. What is great is that I'm not the only one who can laugh at a good geology joke. During the movie Planet 51 I was delighted to see one of the main character had about the same level of interest in geology as I do. Then when I thought this movie could not get any better there were two seen that made me laugh so hard so that I thought I would share it with you.

In this first clip "Rover" is collecting rock samples and finds more than just a rock what made me laugh is how he dealt with this pest (which is a scorpion / lizard).

On this planet when it rains it does not rain water; however, in its place is something I would never want landing on my head.

As a student of geology hoping to one day be a planetary geologist this movie was interesting.
