The anniversery is 2 days away, however I remember a Sunday morning driving with my dad and brother through downtown Oak Harbor with the windows down in a pickup when we heard a loud boom.  We thought it was the Navy there testing a weapon or something.  We found out later that day that Mt. St. Helens had exploded.  Oak Harbor is 200 miles away.

Vesuvius is a subduction zone volcano and its lava source is part of the African plate, its lava has a high silica and gas content.

Kilauea is a hotspot volcano- basaltic lava with low silica and gas content

Actually almost everyone who lived in Pompeii took the threat seriously and survived because they left before shiat went down.

You can draw your own conclusions about the collective course of human intelligence over the last 2,000 years, but remember this: Pompeiians drank their water from lead pipes and they still had more sense than these people.

Anybody remember the old geezer who claimed that the authorities could fly him out in five minutes if the pyroclastic flow came his way? He is now in a safer place, between 45 and 100 feet below solid rock.

Apparently he underestimated the ease of flying a helicopter into a volcanic eruption, as well as the willingness of the authorities to spend the money and take the risks to save his sorry ass.

oa330_man: As someone who lived over 300 miles away from Mt. St. Helens in 1980, I can say ash sucks and I wouldn't want to be anywhere near that crap.  But you can't just quit vacationing because solids are raining down on you , can you?

Correct me if I'm wrong Sandy, but if I kill all the golfers they'll lock me up and throw away the key.

Golfing is how people with very low intelligence, but great social networking skills, are able to get themselves into positions of authority.  So I approve of this.

Volcanos on the Big Island generally don't work that way Subby. Their lava as a rule just isn't as viscous as that found in other volcanos along plate boundaries that sometimes that blow their tops off or create pyroclastic flows like Mt Vesuvius.

neritz: My father always told me that "It never rains on a golf course."

Update: "It never rains volcanic ash on a golf course."

Would like a word with you.....

I know it's a long shot, but I love this headline and think it should at least make it into the headline of the month competition.
