Man Spends 10 Years Collecting Complete Rock Alphabet

June 10, 2016

Because everybody needs a hobby, André Quirinus Zurbriggen has spent the last ten years scouring the Swiss Alps collecting a set of rocks that spell out the entire alphabet. No word what he's going to do now that's he's completed the set, but I suggest going for numbers 0 - 10 or risk falling into a deep depression now that your hobby is over. Same thing happened to me when I finished my matchstick Eiffel Tower. I got so depressed I didn't even want to get out of bed in the morning. So you know what I did? "Burned it to the ground and started over?" Shit, I wish I would have thought of that. No, I've just been struggling with it.

Keep going for a couple writing examples.

Thanks again to donkey, who's been trying to collect a complete set of Japanese characters with much less successful results.

    I bet the guy's neck is kinked and he has a hard time looking up.

    Gneiss. Bet that was hard. My rocks look like schist in comparison.

    Man, geology puns really scoria no points with some people. Tuff crowd.

    Don't let the hater's breccia down, son. Chalk it up to experience.

    Yes it is - it's crappy. Everyone else got rather OK ones but J blows. *huffs*

  • The Magnificent Newtboy

    The z seems the most questionable to me. But a lovely idea anyway
