Have a safe and happy Fourth of July! Whether you're in the USA or not. (What? You thought I'd wish someone an unsafe and unhappy day? ;-)

I guess you have to be a member of Mineralogical Society to get this joke... Nah, rocks are cool. No doubt.

Yeah, I probably should have explained that one.

For years, on the fourth of July, the Polka Dot Agate mine in Madras, Oregon, would explode a wall of the collecting area and let people watch the blast (at a safe distance) before they allowed rockhounds to come in and collect chunks of agate (after the area had been declared safe).

Not sure if other rock collecting sites did this or not.
