I read that as Mount Sinabung, you know... like the volcano.

What mall is that in?

At least they have coffee to go with that pastry.

Not that the story in the TFA is a repeat, though.  That mountain just can't keep it's trap shut, apparently.

Any mall, I think you'll find.

Taunting you with carbohydrate taste goodness and diabetes-inducing glazing.

At least it's easier to say than that volcano that went off in Iceland.

I forgot to submit this last week.

// was going to make a cinnabon reference as well, I tip my hat to the submitter

// and now that I think of it "pyroclastic frosting" sounds like a band name.

THAT'S NOT A CINNABON!!!

They're only in the east half of PA; and at that, only one in Scranton, all the rest in the southeast.

Sounds like you guys are hanging out at The Dirt Mall.  Say, would you like a chocolate-covered pretzel?

I've never understood why an eruption is described as an "explosion."  Or why nuclear weapons tests are compared to eruptions in terms of energy released. 

Isn't it an "explosion" in the same sense that toothpaste "explodes" onto my toothbrush?  

Always thought an explosion was a really quick exothermic chemical reaction.  Not piping hot mag-ma (pinky to mouth) being squeezed through the crust.

Geologist farkers?

Plinean eruption.

That's some top-shelf geology pr0n right there.

But I'm pretty sure the explody part generally refers to the initial eruption, where pressure has built and is let forth in an explosive manner. Think about the side blowing off Mt St Helens. Or whatever.

Mt. St. Helens would like a word with you. :)

Seriously, though, from what I've seen it would seem that most eruptions involve at least some explosions during the process.  Pyroclastic clouds are certainly foreceful enough to merit the term, I would think.

I guess while a volcanic eruption isn't necessarily an explosion, a volcanic explosion is most definitely a form of eruption.

REferring to these events as "explosions" might sometimes be a bit of hyperbole, but really it's not too far form the truth in describing the violent forces typical in volcanic activity.

I don't explosion require exothermic chemical reaction.  The word just means a rapid, violent, expansion or bursting forth.  A polar bear can explode out of the water, and my uncle Fred can explode with anti-Obama rhetoric.

Awesome, thank you two! 
I will check out Mt. St. Helens!

Well, there are a lot of different eruption types. Hawaii (high iron/magnesium, low viscosity) types are your toothpaste eruptions. Inner island arc and crustal boundary eruptions (high alkali mineral, high volatile content, high viscosity) tend to be much more violent and, yes, explosive. In that case you get the rapid conversion of mechanical potential energy to kinetic energy rather than conversion of chemical potential energy. Fission/fusion is kinda-sorta a different beast in terms of potential, in magnitude if nothing else.
