If you ever drop your kayak into a river of molten lava, let it go because man, it's gone.

Some 'Splainin' To Do: Cybernetic: SurelyShirley: Neondion: 1,000 degrees Celsius -Is that above or below freezing?

Equals just about a metric ton.

How much is that in kilometers?

About a trillion pascals, or 2 1/2 decimates.


How many fortrans is that?

Nah, but if you unearth a small tiki statue, leave it where you found it, man.  Those things are bad news.

Our Chinook pilots once overflew the huge crater at Volcanoes National Park, on the Big Island of Hawaii. We were at about 500 feet, and the thermal updraft almost stalled our rotor blades. We rose from 500 to 3,000 feet in maybe 15 seconds. It scared the hell out of everyone aboard, because even if we autorotated to the ground, where do you land? It may have been the dumbest thing I've ever seen done in a helicopter.

Pav: I have walked close enough to that exact lava flow to put a stick in it.  While I was down there a guy came along and went swimming just off to the side of where the lava was hitting the water.  The only danger these guys were in was inhaling that smog thats created when the lava hits the water.

You Are All Sheep: This similar to people that work with molten metals.  Every day.


Not too many workers go kayaking in a foundry.

Probably the same reason it seems risky to drive your car down Tire Blowout and Crash Boulevard.
