Link364 have you considered that the lava/magma/red hot stuff is erupting, not flowing. And the guy on the right looks more like he`s skipping.

belunan, just so you are aware, the term "viscous basaltic lava" is an oxymoron.

lava/magma/red hot stuff travels slow enough to just walk away from, so there`s no hurry

[quote] just to make a correction, when referring to magma you would say this has a low viscosity. [/quote]

You mean high viscosity. It flows slowly.

This is the kind of lava that moves slowly and crumbles as it does.

*High viscosity. As in, highly viscous.

maybe they assume the whole "calmly walk away from an explosion" idea also works for extremely slow but powerful explosions known as lava

"Gee, maybe this was not such a good idea after all?"

I thought Fancy said the language filter was inherited from the original code and he could not remove it without messing up the site or he would try?

Kagenbesexy - That lava is probably moving slowly. Slowly enough for the surface of the lava to cool and harden, anyways.

Also, the guy on the right looks like he`s skipping.
