We're just witnessing the unfolding of a lava story.



I lava you all. :)

Tectonically, of course. :P

That's pretty awesome. Probably not worth a whole lot of money.

Looks like you can get 50 grams of those for $1.90 on Ebay.

Agreed!

Trumps hair and face: Orange.

Lava: Orange.

Coincidence?

God that is putrid. Fucking Disney. Leave it to them to anthropomorphize a fucking hole in the ground from which lava spews forth.

It's basically a zit on the face of the earth. You might as well write a song about two pimples falling in love with each other.

It's Pixar which is not technically Disney. Also it's all based on Polynesian folklore so quit your cultural oppression and shit.

Cultural appropriation by a giant multinational conglomerate. That's another point against it. :x

Don't give them ideas. They would do it. You know they would.

Disney is responsible for Inside Out. A movie where a teen girl's anthropomorphic "joy" intentionally created 99999 imaginary boyfriends who "would die for her" and talked them into doing just that by stacking themselves up and falling into a chasm so that her anthropomorphic "joy" could rescue her anthropomorphic "sadness". Neither one shed a tear, or so much as blinked, as all those imaginary boyfriends fell to their deaths.



You think they would hesitate to make anthropomorphic zits having a romantic interlude? They're probably working on it right now. A pimple could be the next Disney princess.
Such potential!

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) shared the picture on “Throwback Thursday” last week to highlight a “rare” lava-dome fountain that was spotted in Hawaii on Oct. 11, 1969.

“Dome fountain of episode 10, October 10–13, 1969, eruption of Kilauea Volcano,” USGS tweeted. “Symmetrical dome fountains such as this are rare.”

Lava domes — or volcanic domes — vary in size and shape. They can reach up to 1,640 feet high, but typically stay within ranges of 30 to 320 feet, according to the USGS.

They’re also pretty common. They’re formed by viscous (gooey) magma that piles up around the opening of the volvano, also known as the “vent,” according to research compiled by Oregon State.

“Like lava flows, they typically do not have enough gas or pressure to erupt explosively, although they may sometimes be preceded or followed by explosive activity,” Oregon State explained in a blog post. “However, unlike lava flows, the lava that forms domes is often [too] thick and sticky to flow very far, and thus instead pile up thick and high around the vent.”

Tells you something about the state of journalism is the story is the "internet freaks".

Very self-referential.
