LOL'd, I did.

I've heard that when Mount St. Helens blew up in '80, you could see a face in the smoke cloud.

That's what happens when you quit smoking for 200 years and then decide to start back up.

Angry car is angry too.

(I find this funny that this came from Chad's photobucket, but I found it while google searching as a post on a VW forum)

I've seen several volcano eruptions and the big item to be aware of is that they kill a car. The paint changes color in spots and doesn't change back. The dust eats the inside of the motor out. The acid eats everything else up.

Yep - living in Naples (Italy) for 3 years was interesting - and one of the "attractions" was the fact that the whole area sits on a huge Y-shaped volcanic fault - Vesuvius to the south and Solfatara 30 miles to its north. Very common to see the hanging lamp in the apartment living room jiggle back and forth. The whole area is affected by volcanic dust - you don't thoroughly rinse it off the car before you wash it and the paint looks like you used a Brillo pad. Volcanic steam vents are as common as stop signs - even in the middle of a road! (The engineers bore a slanted tunnel into the vent and patch the road.....) Just north of Naples in Solfatara (think: Pozzuoli - Sophia Loren) 15 miles of beach rises and falls as underground pressure varies, and it sunk 4 feet while we were stationed there.......Don't mess with Mother Nature.

Sub, does the volcanic dust cloud have any effect on satellite communication? It also can't be good news for COPD sufferers and other lung disease sufferers in areas affected by the volcanoe's fallout.

It was a different form of eruption at Mauna Loa on Hawaii, but standing inches from molten lava really impresses.

Man's works are puny in comparison.

This is really gonna screw with Iceland's green credits .... :suspense:

The volcano is Earth's way of telling the greens to go F themselves.

Thank you, Jesda. :)

The good thing about natural disasters is that it reminds us of how insignificant our actions for ecology can be. One little volcano makes up for decades, nay, centuries of man minimizing pollution. One step forward, 500 years back .....

Of course, that's no excuse to trash your own house. Never piss where you eat.

04-18-10, 12:11 PM
Wow, thats a pretty crazy shot

Some years ago a KLM 747 pilot decided that flying through a volcanic ash cloud near Anchorage couldn't be that bad and in less than a minute he was flying a large four engine glider. Some how he got a couple engines restarted before they went in the water but it was close.

I read about that koz, I think they said he fell like 12,000 feet with no engines.
They said something about another one that the dust cloud sandblasted the windshield and the pilot had to stand and look out of the window to the side to see.
