TRAPPN#98: Mount Merapi eruptions

Images of the eruption at Mt. Merapi in Indonesia, from Boston.com’s Big Picture Blog. The volcano has been erupting since October 25, 2010, and 140 people have died.

My failure to post photos of the actual victims is purposeful -this is a hard time for many in Indonesia, and I don’t mean to ignore that. It’s just that I find it so much more intriguing to consider this volcano in its sublime form. Beautiful and terrifying. The more these world disasters happen, the more I feel like the 2012 hypothesis is correct. Oh well, I’m just gonna move to Fogo Island and finish my life off worry free.
