Oh yes I did forget humans, animals, bugs and microbial life forms. Also if one wants to say a hammer is one that hits a road, then why not count every farmer's field as well? Most are composed of fill material.
Trees and plants shouldn't be included either and I own the La Criolla that whacked the orange tree. But it would be nice to add 50 percent to the value....hmm...

You forgot humans-proper , Matt
Yeppers sounds like a bunch of politicians trying to make it fit the category by exploiting every last stretched scrap of obscure "pseudo-logic".
--just like every 3rd stone mentioned is "oriented" and just like EVERY rusty ancient Campo, Canyon Diablo and W4 NWA has fusion crust...yeppers I ought'a write a book..
What became of the work to adopt an "orientation" scale?
