My Moon Rock

Do moon rocks float in water? I don't know. But if I had a moon rock, which by the way I do not, I wouldn't fling it into the ocean just to see if it floats - it might sink, and then I'd lose it forever. I'd test in in the tub first. Then, if it floats, I'd take it to the beach with me and, while I float on my inflatable raft, I'd let my moon rock float next to me. I'd set my drink on my moon rock. "No, it's not magic!" I'd proclaim when others wonder aloud at my floating drink. "My drink is actually resting on my moon rock. My moon rock floats, you see." Then I'd guzzle my drink, whip the glass as far as I could from my semi-reclining position, and hold my moon rock above my head in blazing triumph. I'd be careful not to drop my moon rock on my head because I wouldn't want anything ridiculous to tarnish my moment of victory.

I actually held a moon rock in my hand. It was the size of about two of these ::. It would not float me a loan. So there's your answer.

Snake, both you and Esther are on some serious medications, aren't you?

And here I thought moon rock was the type of music Pink Floyd played. I blame my public-school education.

Kenju: No one here is on serious medications. Some may be on trivial medications; some may be on snickering medications; some may be on medications of subtle irony casually enhanced by wit. I cannot be certain without further testing, but -- serious medications, decidedly not.
Bird: Au contraire. Moon rock is used by artists to sculpt buttocks. If you don't believe me, take a look at some of those Greek statues. Besides, music is not a mineral.

Please ensure, having guzzled your drink, that a small dribble does not run from the corner of your mouth. This would distract the audience of your blazing triumph. Also, perhaps wearing a crash helmet whilst reclining on your inflatable beach raft may be a precautionary measure worthy of consideration.
