    It's keron+medic. Considered keramedic (like paramedic) but it didn't sound right.

    It means I care about the environment.

    (Original post by Wikipedia)
    A group of people in San Rafael, California,[2][3] calling themselves the Waldos[4] because "their chosen hang-out spot was a wall outside the school",[5] used the term in connection with a fall 1971 plan to search for an abandoned cannabis crop that they had learned about.[4][6] The Waldos designated the Louis Pasteur statue on the grounds of San Rafael High School as their meeting place, and 4:20 p.m. as their meeting time.[5] The Waldos referred to this plan with the phrase "4:20 Louis". Several failed attempts to find the crop eventually shortened their phrase to simply "4:20", which ultimately evolved into a codeword that the teens used to mean marijuana-smoking in general.[6] Mike Edison says that Steven Hager of High Times was responsible for taking the story about the Waldos to "mind-boggling, cult-like extremes" and "suppressing" all other stories about the origin of the term.[7]

    Hager wrote "Stoner Smart or Stoner Stupid?" in which he called for 4:20 p.m. to be the socially accepted hour of the day to consume cannabis.[8] He attributes the early spread of the phrase to Grateful Dead followers, who were also linked to the city of San Rafael.[8]

    I'd genuinely wondered about yours before. Can't believe it's a mineral. That's cool.
    Plagioclase is actually the name given to a series of minerals which have a chemical composition that varies continuously between NaAlSi3O8 (Albite) and CaAl2Si2O8 (Anorthite) and we name each plagioclase member depending on where its composition lies between those two extremes, normally given as a percentage of Anorthite e.g. if we've got a mineral and it's 40% Albite and 60% Anorthite (An60) then it's called Labradorite.

    This is how it looks like under a microscope with special lenses - very distinctive!
