MacWizard: Jon iz teh kewl: MacWizard: jabelar: othmar: i kind of don't think that had anything to do with that opening of the Hobbit movie.

I don't know, it is pretty cool that a mountain used in the movie that has been dormant for a century happens to erupt within a month of the opening.

Except that Mt. Doom isn't part of "The Hobbit." The mountain's contract clearly called for an eruption at the opening of the LOTR's second movie. It's wa-a-a-y behind schedule and will probably lose a percentage of residual income.

how do u know u haven't even seen The Hobbit

Because I'm a wizard.

And I read the book.


There are going to be certain LOTR characters in "The Hobbit" that aren't in the book. Like Galadriel, for example.

Now, that's a movie I wish they'd do properly... No, the one with The Rock doesn't count... It was semi-enjoyable for mindless entertainment, but it wasn't Doom... Doom requires fighting actual demons from Hell! (Of course, there's not really much of any actual plot beyond that, which presents a bit of a problem...)

...so what's the over/under on a simultaneous eruption of Mt. Fuji and (insert Cascade mountain here)?

Because, there is a word for how that would be, and that is awesome.

I'm surprised that I didn't see 53 of the 57 comments making of of the submitter for the fact that this volcano is neither of the two Mt. Dooms. Mt Ruapehu -- one of the volcanoes shot as Mt. Doom and a neighbor of this volcano -- sent out some nasty earthquakes a few days ago. I wonder if that helped knock loose the magma in the chamber underneath this volcano. Anyway, Mt. Doom hasn't erupted... yet.
