Some 'Splainin' To Do: DROxINxTHExWIND: Clemkadidlefark: If you got the stones, use 'em ...

Why? While I'm curious to know why people do intentionally dangerous stuff that has no benefit to anyone, it's their life. They can do what they want with it. What puzzles me is why do you people think it's "cool"? It's the definition of stupidity. Farkers talk about Darwinism all of the time. This guy is a classic case.

"Cool" and "Safe" are sets that have very little overlap. "Cool" and "Stupid", however, have a large amount of overlap.

Does that clarify the subject for you?


Not really. Stupidity is not cool to me.

Devolving_Spud: LDM90: That's like 110 in real degrees, right?

They are using metric kayaks, so the magma is measured in Celsius.


The Centigrade / Celsius scale is really no more "metric" than the Fahrenheit. It simply happened to be the measure that was integrated into the metric system (calories et. al.). Both scales start from a definition of 0-100 degrees between two points. Fahrenheit used two arbitrary standards: the coldest temperature attainable with a mixture of water and salt, and human body core temperature. (This was later found to be erroneous, which is why we now know body temperature as 98.6 instead of 100.)

Celsius's scale definition is simpler; it sets 100 degrees as the span between the freezing and boiling points of water.

We also have the Rankine and Kelvin scales, which reference from absolute zero and use Fahrenheit and Centigrade degrees respectively.

Celsius was originally known as Centigrade (the names are still usable interchangeably) but the official name was changed to Celsius due to "Centigrade" being used in France as a unit of angular measurement (source: teh wiki.)

Well, you know when you eat a piece of pizza and it's too hot and it burns the roof of your mouth?
Lava is like, twice as hot as that.

callthekiteman: I was just out there a week ago - on a much larger boat.  There are three lava/ocean entry points right now and it's really flowing.  Those cliffs he was crawling around on fall down all of the time.  There is nothing to support them.  Also, any sand that is there is super duper sharp, like glass.  There are also a lot of burning hot chunks flowing around in the water.  This dude is insane.  And lucky.

It's like the Grizzly Man, sometimes you get away with doing stupid stuff, but if you tempt fate enough you can be the first person killed doing something really dumb, and we'll all laugh at you.
