Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
Don't these events release CO2 into the atmosphere, leading to global warming? What can be done? This is terrible. Where is Al Gore when we need him? If we sacrificed Al Gore by putting him under a lava firehose would it stop the lava? Since nobody has done that before to Gore, no time like the present to see if it would work.
Yes, let's sacrifice him to the fire god, Pele. AGW is kind of a religion anyway. We can have hula girls, a luau and fire dancers! Then, at the penultimate moment, Al is tossed into the tube, and bets can be taken as to when his flaming corpse will be disgorged into the Pacific!
Like it. But not much of a sacrifice. Gods may get even angrier
Still, it's worth a try?
Very Interesting. I've walked in lava tubes here in N Calif and it's an experience.
In the beginning of Hawaiian time... Madame Pele was born in a far-distant land at the edge of the sky. There she lived with her parents until she was grown up, when she married. After a time, and the bearing of children, her husband was “enticed away” by another. The deserted Madame Pele, being ‘much displeased and troubled in mind’ (a.k.a. pissed off), on account of her husband’s indiscrepancy, went in search of him. First, Madame Pele searched the island of Kauai and travelled southeast, finally making her home in Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island. Apparently, though, in this story, she never really resolves the “huhu” she’d had with the husband. http://goodstuffsworld.blogspot.com/2012/10/hawaii-volcanoes.html
That's why she's always so mad, and ready to cover the countryside with the hot lava of her anger.
And if you are lucky (or Madame Pele likes you) you may find some of Pele's Tears or Pele's Hair. Don't get too close to Madame Pele's house, though. She doesn't like that!http://www.amusingplanet.com/2015/09/peles-hair-and-peles-tears.html
