Björnsson, who is also called Thor, shared the photo on his official Instagram account.

Geologist Gets Revenge On Neighbors Who Blocked Her Car With A Huge Boulder
“[They] forgot I am a geologist.”
What would you do if there was a huge boulder blocking your car preventing you from getting to work? Most of us would probably call on a few friends to move the thing away. However, one geologist took matters into her own hands and got back at the drunk neighbors who tried to get her into trouble in the first place.
Melissa Scruggs is a volcanology Ph. D. candidate who has been dealing with rowdy neighbors in the past year. Although her neighbors were usually considerate, things got out of hand when they had a big party. A huge boulder that had been meant to keep the fence steady was inexplicably moved right in front of Scruggs' car. Unfortunately, this could prevent her from going to work that morning.
This could be the worst thing to wake up to, unless you're a geologist.
