Garbage Disposal in a Volcano

[YouTube Clip by Richard Roscoe of Photovolcanica]

Campers in Ethopia threw a bag of garbage into a volcanic crater to see what would happen. The bag broke through the thin crust covering a pool of magma and allowed the lava to spew out. And, of course, the garbage was incinerated. No word on whether they were fined for littering. -via reddit

Holy cow, I'd no idea it would be that vigorous. It would be kinda embarrassing to destroy a whole town just because you threw two bags of garbage in.
