This is a series of shots from German photographer Martin Rietze of last month’s eruptions of the Sakurajima Volcano in Japan. He looks like he’s standing pretty close, but hopefully he was just using one of those super-zoom lenses perverts use to take shots of girls on the beach from their hotel room balconies. That reminds me, one year in college I went to Daytona Beach for spring break when it also happened to be Motorcycle Week there and this older, leathery-looking woman on the back of a chopper flashed her boobs at me in a Walgreens parking lot. I gave her a thumbs up but deep down in my heart and peen they really just made me sad. Obviously I had to get really drunk afterwards and that night I swallowed a glow-stick.

Ever wonder what would happen if you threw a 30kg (~66-lb) box of trash (predominately food remnants) into a volcano from 80-meters (~262-feet)? Me too! Man, I get bored and think of all kinds of shit. Like, what would happen if you got struck by lightning while holding fireworks. Would they go off? Is there any chance of turning into a firework-related superhero? And, if so, is a Native American rain dance still the best way to summon a storm? Why are there so many landfills when we have perfectly good volcanoes to throw trash into? If you toss enough garbage in them will they eventually all simultaneously erupt and destroy the world? How soon can we start dumping?
Hit the jump for the video. Allegedly it’s so violent because of the steam produced by the organic matter.
