Back in aught 6 I went on a west coast trip my my dad, my brother, and my dad's friend. We stopped at a tourist trap gift shop/gas station/restaurant outside Zion National park and in the store they had a big display full of magnetic hematite stones. I was playing with them and to be honest, I slipped a small handful in my pocket and walked out back to the car. A few minutes later my brother gets in, and I show him what I stole. Lo and behold, he smiles, and pulls a handful of magnet rocks out of his pocket which he also stole. A few minutes later, my dad gets in the car and says "hey, look what I grabbed when no one was looking..." and pulled out a handful himself. My dad's friend just shook his head in disbelief.

I wonder what happened to all of those little rocks.

Rocks were a big part of that trip. We actually made a point to grab a rock from many of the places we visited. I bet my brother still has those.

That's awesome. I love grabbing rocks from different places and putting them in the printer's tray at home. I've never been brave enough to steal them though.

Won't that lead to paper jams?
