I keep them at home, though.
Maybe they get into that cycle again at a different point, then, after my death …
I did collect stones as a boy (8-10 years old). Even saved all my weekly allowance to buy a book about rocks.

pibbur wo thinks that's one of the things it might be fun to revisit when he retires.

pibbur who, AFAHK, has never been part of a scientific study, and who has only once called the police, for a completely different reason - to report his car being stolen (it wasn't)

PS. BTW, once in the Berlin Zoo, I witnessed a tiny baboonish youngster playing with a rock, systematically pushing it around on the ground. It got very annoyed (it seemed although I'm not up-to-date about emotional expressions of baboonoids) when other monkeys tried to take it from him. DS.

Reminds me of an ugly episode of my own life :

One day, after playing too long a game, I looked out of the house window, saw the sky, houses across the street, the few trees, the birds, and suddenly thought : "What is the screen refresh rate of Reality ?" Then I instantly knew I had to shut down my PC.

Really happened ! I didn't make this up !

I regularly, to some degree, have the same feeling. Don't shut my PC down, though.

pibbur whose refresh rate is 1/day (exercising).
