I would like to go see...
« on: March 07, 2011, 06:57:07 AM »
... lava!

It is like fire from the depths of Hades!  

Volcano erupts in Hawii.

A lot of people say, 'O, before I die I want to see the Grand Canyon' or the pyramids, or go skydiving, or whatever.  Those would be nothing compared to seeing lava flowing up close, I think.


It is the most awesome, most powerful thing on the face of the earth, other than love. Nothing stops lava!  Not even the ocean! Slows it down a bit, but look at how many islands are created purely from volcanic flow.  Lava is both destructive and creative, something no other natural force on this planet can claim.

Figuratively, of course! ;)

1,250° Celsius,  2,282° Fahrenheit.

How hot is lava?
Lava is extremely hot. Lava can reach temperatures of about 1,250° Celsius. The lava of the Hawaiian volcanoes reach these temperatures. Normal lava temperatures reach 750° Celsius. That is still much hotter than your oven is capable of reaching.

Don't try to step in it!
Even a shielded Pyro takes serious damage.

On that thought, the fear would probably keep me away.

For a science class I'm in, I've been watching a lot of videos that have a lot of lava in them for some reason. As a result, I've been thinking a lot lately about just how very hot that stuff is, which of course gives me the willies in turn every time I go too far with that line of thought. :P

Have you ever heard of a word called 'humour'?

And why dig up a two-month old thread to make an inane comment like that?

What are you?

maybe what he is saying is humor. Some love digging up old topics.

He did quote something I said. I don't know if that says this person is a legitimate person or not.
some people just love giving new people that nice welcoming feeling, hey?  ;D

maybe we ought to have the new people go through training and find out who they really are.
I'd fail. I'm a bot myself, no one caught on.  ;D

I'm not sure if you're serous or not Vanguard, but I'm pretty sure it's not a spambot.

You just gave me a really wierd idea for a cyber-villain.  I can't get it out of my head now.

Any case, we'll see if this guy/gal/thing comes back tomorrow, next week, - or ever.  (I am aware that Jeremy is a man's name :P... doesn't stop a woman from using it online, theoretically).

what part aren't you sure?
First line could be true, digging up old topics. I have seen it done in other forums.

He did quote something that I said, about playing Call of Duty and Descent. He says he loves Call of Duty.

and I am a bot. I malfunction at the 500th post. almost there.

I really don't think Jeremy is a spam bot. His posts may seem spammish but look at the crap we post everyday. The only difference is we know each other well enough we accept off topic and inane dribble as just part of the lively banter we engage in. Give the guy a break. Also, it took him an hour to post 10 comments... would a bot do that?

We'll see if he/she/it comes back.

My other theory if it's not a person is it could be designed to let someone look at our profiles and harvest our emails to be spammed.  That person would probably be very disappointed when they discover the true size of this community  ::) ;D.

I don't think regular members have accesses to e-mail address. Correct me if I am wrong and I'll look into the permissions.
