This site has original scans of the tourist brochures showing exactly what they did and how they did it.
They stopped doing the Yosemite Firefall more than 40 years ago. Jeff Sullivan, the guy who posted that picture on Flicker claiming it as his own, is a lying sack of $h!+.
It`s a waterfall lit by the sunset.
"um, old ollie? Lord of the Rings is not a Hollywood film. it was made in New Zealand. "
It was filmed in New Zealand, but a LOT of scenes were filmed in front of a blue screen, in a studio. Very likely, in Hollywood.
And Lord of the Rings is literature first, movie second.
There is no standard faal, so sometimes (for a mid-life-crisis-chilli-head) its a disappointment. Sometimes a `lesser` heat dish is packing some serious chile and it blows your socks off.
Last nights was good. "hurt me plenty" without actually killing me. I wish capsaiwhatsit dissolved before exiting though...
Totally Kamchatked today!
I tried a phaal once on Brick Lane in London. After my sixth glass of milk, I had to call the waiter over to ask if it was supposed to hurt this much while I was eating it... Little did I know that the intense pain of ingestion was only to be surpassed the next day by the excruciating agony of the subsequent excretion. Never again.
And Davy, you`re right: Hollywood screenplays don`t count as literature.
And finally, I suppose by now you have all Googled "Yosemite Firefall" to see what`s really going on in the picture.
Ohhh, be careful about being getting technical around a geologist. Lava, by the very definition of the term, is magma at the surface. Hence no lava at Yosemite. I rest my case, Your Honour.
As for the authenticity of this picture, you all can still bicker that one out.
There ain`t no lava in Yosemite, buddy. And for what it`s worth, that quote is from the movie only. Doesn`t appear in Tolkien`s original text.
THOSE WHO BREAK THIS RULE WILL HAVE THEIR TESTICLES RIPPED OFF AND FED TO THE LIONS!
Anyway sweet pic.
Now that we have that out of the way, SHOPPED!"
1. It`s a quote.2. Incorrect, It can be used in both ways. The from is implied, but can also be put in front of whence to form a perfectly legitimate sentence:
Now that we have that out of the way, SHOPPED!
