Have rocks been lying to us all this time? A geologist in North Dakota claims that rocks are actually incredibly soft and squishy and tense up only when humans touch them.
Geologist Gina Worthing has been studying rocks for years. When researching the hardness of rocks, she noticed something very peculiar.
I touch hundreds of rocks a day. So I implemented a new experiment where I would sneak up behind the rock real quietly. When I grabbed the rock it felt like a damn stress ball. Fucking crazy, man…
