madest: I`ve never had a problem with science. I have a problem with philosophers dressed up as scientists spouting their anti-religious beliefs and forcibly proselytizing them to our children.

I mean really, Nothing in the bible can be true because you`ve found fossils of dinosaurs ? Get real.

I had sound :S maybe turn it up a bit? There was plenty of roaring and blasting towards the middle.

Anyway, I bet Peter Griffin is feeling pretty smug about his volcano insurance right now.

Steelgrid: Did you see all that white cloudy looking stuff ? That`s steam. Lava doesn`t just explode on it`s own, It can be spewed out from pressure, A collapse of the crater wall, OR water turning into steam. Groundwater and or an underground aquifer seeps in to the crater, it takes several seconds to heat up and then *BOOM*.

P.S. I don`t like to harm anyone, but I would gladly go to jail for stabbing the crap out of these spammers.

I`m pretty sure Earth wants to kill us. Just waiting for the best time, such as the arrival of a Dante(DMC reference, not historical person reference).

Can we hold the front page on the supervolcano eruption until after I`m dead? I definitely definitely do not want to be around for such an event.

Earth wouldn`t just kill us. She would rape us, kill us, then piss in our eye sockets.

technically we`re overdue for another super volcano
its technical because it does`nt erupt at precise time intervals

Yeah, Earth could kill us all, quickly, if she really wanted to... but it`s a lot more fun to watch us kill ourselves, slowly.

Ain`t Mother Nature and Karma a pair of bitches? (Speaking as a failed experiment in primate evolution, that is.)

Steam shockwave? No.....You can clearly see that after each shotwave that LAVA is bein spewed into the air....For the size of this crater the amont of water required to do this would have to be much much higher....Most of the ice has already been melted by the time this video was shot

@ CrakrJak. How dare you cite science? God creates lightning and you know it.

To understand how impressive that is, try to imagine the amount of TNT required to mimic what is shown in the vid

Angelmassb: Volcanic lightning, Yes, Impressive. All those particles rubbing into one another produce a lot of static charge, Just like the ice crystals in normal clouds.

Likely steam explosions causing the shock waves. This is in the middle of a rather large glacier, So it`s likely a lot of water is trying to seep into the crater and instantly turning to steam when it hits the lava. It`s an explosive 1600 to 1 ratio, 1 gallon of water makes 1600 gallons of steam.

And then we realise that this is in Iceland and all volcanoes there aren`t deadly.
Take that mother nature

Volcanoes are just Earth`s little way of reminding us who`s wearing the pants in this relationship.
