Volcanoes and lightning?  Very very frightening!

I always thought that it was a by-product of the evil experiments conducted by the supervillains whose lairs are located there.

You would have to be some kind of idiot to make a secret lair in a volcano.  When it blows, your whole operation blows with it.

They probably don't do it by relying on Forbes for their science news, subby.

Was that in one of the Hunger Games movies? I dunno, I just remember the girl with the rack and eternally glazed look on her head.

Nah.  I was 11 when I had a front row seat to a real life demonstration of volcano induced lightning.  I'm good.

Ambivalence: You would have to be some kind of idiot to make a secret lair in a volcano. When it blows, your whole operation blows with it.


On the contrary, the self-destruct system costs about 5% of what it normally would, since you're using the very forces of nature bent to your will.  The peace of mind that comes with knowing your secrets will not fall into enemy hands is well worth the price.

Yes, I have wondered how volcanoes make lightning.  Not enough to click on a Forbes link, though.
