This is where the Super Mario Bros. would come in handy.
they should just plug it up with indonesian balls.
Never understood why people lived near volcanoes. Or why people lived so close to fault lines. Oh wait.
Then again, same goes with people living in Tornado Alley or Hurricane Country. Guess you can't live anywere truly safe.
Hopefully Vesuvius does one of those "smoking for two days" as a warning, instead of just up and blasting it's cap.
So many jokes ... so many jokes ... instead I'll just say, Pompeii was a great documentary by the Discovery Channel.
Remember in the opening for that cartoon where Superman plugs up the volcano with a big bolder? They should do that.
Wouldn't that make the volcano look like one giant tit?
And wouldn't the pressure just build up and shoot that thing into the air only for it to come back down and crush people?
Actually, no. If you were using something small and round with little to no mass, correct. But you add something of the mass of a giant boulder on top of a volcano that's releasing gas not to mention the pressure build-up altogether, you're looking more at a massive explosion from the center of the pressure build-up.
Or the sides of the volcano give-way and the boulder falls in to the volcano, which doesn't make anything better either.
Superman was a dick.
Wasn't that what happened at Mt. St. Helens? I recall that the side of the volcano erupted and collapsed and not the top.
You would be correct. Well, somewhat correct.
EDIT: You see, the volcano was relatively unstable, but after an alien spacecraft crash landed in to it, it set off a series of events that took millions of years to unfold. In the end, these mechanical beings from another planet caused the eruption of Mt. St. Hellens, and are awaiting their moment to strike our vast resources that we've already depleted.
People live near volcanoes because the soil tends to be really fertile for growing crops and stuff.
Same goes for floodplains, now that I think about it.
oh shit phy just bitch slapped us with some geography nollij
Super Volcanoes FTW.
And FTL, if they really do pack that much punch.
Man...they're gonna be pissed.
Hmm. But what about the fault line thing?
Maybe Idaho or something...
