heat + ice = water + steam?

Do you happen to have links to those images in larger form? They'd make awesome backgrounds

Subby's frigid mom is in a Reverse Cowgirl with me again?
 
2014-08-22 07:28:33 PM  
I dunno subby, why don't you ask your mom what it was like last night when I erupted under -- oh, it would be a major violation of the TOS for me to continue. So, let me just say glaciers are enormous, frigid blocks of ice that grind rocks into the ground. And I sometimes refer to my manhood as Mount Vesuvius.

The same thing that happens when it erupts under anything else?

Open Google Images, drag and drop into the search bar. Or TinEye. Can't really help you, sorry...

Do I want to live someplace that has a word for volcano-generated glacial flooding? I think I'll stay here in the land of freedom independence liberty.

Something like dutch ovens

I think the real question is what happens when a volcano erupts underneath a large number of sharks...

Tangential to the topic is a story related by John McPhee about the time a volcanic eruption threatened to close a harbor in Iceland. The lava flow was out at sea, and people went out on the solid, still hot surface and tried to cool it off to get it to stop. A measure which sometimes included peeing on the lava.

I think the eruption ended without the harbor becoming blocked.

Yabut they have attractive women.

And all the guys are skinny weirdos in leather pants who spend their time ruining perfectly good songs by waltzing in and rapping about lobsters for the love of Christ what the hell was up with that.

ftfa: However, when lava cools quickly--like, for instance, when it'shiatting up against a glacier-- it doesn't release nearly as much heat as it does when it cools slowly.

How in the wide-world of thermodynamics does that make sense?

Ecliptic: Lahars... Say goodbye Tacoma!


It'd smell better...

/iirc only Mt. St. Helens is still considered to be in a growth stage. Any of the others will just lose height.

That erupts inside a turkey, it's called a Turglashevol.

You try shiatting up against a glacier and try to make sense of it.

Okay, Iceland, we've had about enough trouble from you. Knock it the hell off.

Iceland is simply the top of Earth's ass crack. You see, something really big..or something really fast..or maybe something in between smacked a new butthole in the planet opposite pangea. That buttcrack has been spreading ever since as a giant goatse to the universe.

it just releases it faster...steam and thus pressure builds up and you may* get an explosion from that.  Should be interesting.  *pop corn*

Glacier loses every time.

Something that ate its way through ten miles of rock won't even notice the glacier on top.

What would happen if you took a lava lake and dumped the whole thing at once onto a glacier?

Wait for it....wait for it....

So, a bottle of superheated water full of lava byproducts melts through 1300 feet of ice cap, goes all diet coke and Mentos.

Because puny humans keep trampling on sacred mountain; and a few get their souls eaten by the old gods...

I pray to all the gods; the old and the new...

Nicki Minaj's asscrack video is released and simultaneously the earth's bunghole starts rumbling. Coincidence? I think not!
