Door 21: Four non geologists who should totally be geologists

Twenty one

In our quest to seek out those who should totally be geologists, we may have invented a new game….We’re calling it Geological Nominative Determinism. This may be a little clunky, so please suggest alternatives below.

  1. Dr Ann T Klein

Dr Ann, we’re sure you’re a very fine practitioner of medicine, but we insist you cease immediately and become a structural geologist. It is your destiny.

Perisphinctes_ammonite2. Amy Knight

Wikipedia tells us Amy Knight is currently a scholar of the KGB, and this frankly isn’t good enough. Ammonites are a noble and rewarding scholarly persuit, and we demand that you turn your mind to them, for the sake of nominitive determinism.

Perry_Malinowski_flag3. Maggie Ma

Oh, Maggie Ma. Why star in third rate horror film sequels when you could be hunting down volcanoes? It doesn’t make any sense.

  1. Sadie Muntz

You could say we’re reaching now, but we say Sadie Muntz should abandon her burgeoning high school basketball career and take up sedimentology. The name aside, it’s a far more lucrative career prospect anyway.
