An orthoclase feldspar in the rough

First | Previous | 2016-04-21 | Next | Latest

Strip by: David Morgan-Mar, Andrew Coker

T-Rex: My laundry hamper...
T-Rex: IS AN ELEVEN
T-Rex: on the Mohs scale.
Dromiceiomimus: Goodness gracious Friedrich!
T-Rex: I know!
Utahraptor: Wait...
Utahraptor: Whut?
T-Rex: It's the too-hard basket!

The author writes:

Today I Learnt: It's not "Moh's scale", named after some guy called Moh. It's "the Mohs scale", named after some guy called Friedrich Mohs.

(In a case of cosmic irony, while erasing this comic there must have been a speck of something hard caught between the whiteboard and the erasing cloth, because it left a really nasty scratch.)
