Anyone visit a volcano, or live near a volcano?

Anyone visit a volcano, or live near a volcano?
Back in 2000 when I was still married to my x, we went to spend a week in Japan to visit her parents. If our flight out there had been on time, the weather would have been clear, but it got delayed and it was the middle of the night when we landed ant took a 4 hour bullet train ride to where her parent's house was. She told me the train was passing Fuji, but I couldn't see a thing.

But, on the way back , to our flight back to Tokyo, her parents drove us and we stopped at a tourist rest stop on another mountain during the day. But, it was overcast so while I could see the base, the top was covered in clouds. I can however say, that volcano is mother loving gigantic. All I could think at the time was, "Don't do anything while I am here."

Fuji is so tall, even in the summer it has snow on the top. Just like the volcano's of Hawaii. 

So does anyone live near a volcano, or have you visited a volcano?

Considering throwing a virgin in?

Cute. Sorry to disappoint you, but I have dipped my wick, and out of the dips I did, two I dated one could consider magazine model material. And I have been married too. 

I think a better dig, since you want to go there, would be why couldn't I keep any of them?

I think Stormy has better recourse and defense if she threw the former guy into a volcano.

I’ve visited several volcanoes. Your other question depends on what you mean by ‘live near’. NZ has about 100 volcanoes and we’re a small country. You’re never very far from one.

I get that humans adapt, but still, the power of such nature is scary to me. I guess when it is a slow leak, lava flow, it is more a pain in the ass than sudden bomb explosion. I cannot imagine, or comprehend what the people of Pompeii went through in 79 CE. 

Pyroclastic flow is a monster. But the common slow moving lava flows we see on the news, I get that people can deal with it. 

But I could not believe how massive the base of Fuji was. It went from left to right, or right to left, however you want to look at it, and it seemed forever. Since the cloud cover prevented me from seeing the peak I could only imagine how tall it was. 

Looking at Fuji and how massive it was, reminded me, looking back now,  as a kid, when my mom took me to an NFL scrimmage, not even a preseason game, but a pre preseason game, a scrimmage, and at the time, I was tiny, millimeters tall compared to the players, and to me, at the time, the players looked like Jupiter compared to my size when I was adopted. 

Fuji may be quiet now, but like any volcano, or for that matter, any star in the universe, nature always has the advantage. Nature may sleep for a while, but it always wakes up, and not always to our species advantage.

Not always, but it can be.

I think cobras are scary. Not that they are evil, but just in that you really have to know what the hell you are doing if you are going to interact with them. Volcanos are both destructive and constructive. Volcanos create new land masses, provide nutrients for plant life. But you also don't want to be around them when they explode.

Exactly. So many thetans flying around after that happens.

That's why I don't wanna live near a volcano.

In all of life, something always gets us, even if just old age. But out of all the ways to go, I think most humans would rather not see the end coming. The thought of being in the path of of a pyroclastic flow, with time to realize you are going to die, is not appealing.
