Volcano in Indonesia
Apparently a volcano, Mt. Merapi, erupted on 26 October 2010, forcing thousands of villagers to flee for their lives. Some 15 people were killed because they were too close to the blast zone when the volcano erupted. If I were one of those villagers moved by this natural disaster, I'd probably want to sue God or something. I'm not sure who the lawyer would be, but I'd think of something.
Anyway, on to the point of this post: I want to be close to a volcano eruption someday. Wouldn't that be awesome? I've always wanted to wear one of those shiny heat-reflective suits and dip things into a moving stream of lava, just for the fun of it... dodge flying pieces of magma, and maybe even break my leg after falling due to the earth shifting below me! What magical times those would be! OK, so maybe that wouldn't be such a great idea. Murphy's law and all that.
But I still dream about it nonetheless. :D
