    Whereas someone who specialized in sheet metal installation will instantly be able to see a geologic formation? Sorry, Ish. Not buying it. Not when we have, essentially, a con man who wants to...

    Using that standard we could have a debate on whether or not they ate tree bark and shit wooden nickles. I find such speculation to be utterly worthless.
