the guy without a suit is too far in the danger zone to not wear a suit. if it were real his skin would be bubbling.

@Byfield- Tanks and volcanoes are two wildly different things.

POINT: that is that guys job. that kind of thing isnt scary. Really, i worked with a a tank display show, and we have some really strange people turn up in tanks to roll around our arena, and my job is to stand in front of the tanks if they go to fast or if they are being unruly. its not scary, you get used to it.

It might just be me but I don`t really wake up in the morning and think to myself "wow, I really want to descend into an active volcano today!"

... I don`t know it just doesn`t seem like my idea of a good time.

"except hell is invented by christians."

Before you guys go any further with this, I`d like to remind you that this is a post about a volcano, not something having anything whatsoever to do with religion, so please make this the one post that doesn`t devolve into a Jesus flamewar.

that`s retard close

for them to get that close INSIDE the volcano, they`d have to "turn off" their self preservation instincts/emotions/biology.

beccab86 - Wow, you can`t say you`re not `dissin`` their bravery and then in brackets put stupidity. and if they`re wearing those suits I would guess they are pretty damn close.

Don`t be retarded your whole life.

How close are they really? I`m sure you can`t get but so close to lava, even with one of those shiny suits on.

I`m not dissin` their bravery (stupidity); I`m really curious.

That must be pretty intense. It would totally suck to just slip, and fall into that. Could you imagine being stoned off your ass, and doing that?

And some people have trouble believing there is such a thing as hell, That looks like a `Lake of Fire` to me.

The crazy thing I have so much trouble fully wrapping my head around is that the "red glowing water" sloshing about so freely is ROCK. Just amazing.

I like how he`s just casually standing there and waving while on the precipice of hell itself. If there was anything that could make me a theist, this would probably be it.

It boggles my mind that we live on a planet so fierce. Not bad compared to other planets, obviously, but impressive none the less.

I understand the rush of getting up close to such power. I walked on a lava flow still entering the ocean in Kalapana in 1989. It`s almost like you want to touch it but can not. they are just lucky. A few weeks after my walk the lava bench fell into the ocean and killed one person and crippled another along with severe injuries to others. Since then the Volcanoes NP more actively controls walks out to such viewing sites. I sometimes wondered after hearing the rock crack under my feet if the breakfast I ate. Just made me heavy enough to fall through into an active lava tube. Still though it was a rush.

I have a friend to this day still takes a boat ride right up to the flow into the ocean and take pics. Even the boat is marred and charred in places from burning lava.
