Lightning in FRIGGIN' VOLCANOES

As you probably know, there is a great big cloud of ash from an Icelandic volcano engulfing just about the entire European subcontinent right now. On the news last night, Brian Williams reminded me (personally) of one of my favorite natural phenomenons, right up there with when bunnies clean themselves with their little front paws: VOLCANO LIGHTNING. Something about the charged particles in the air from eruptions often results in lightning storms generated by the VOLCANOES THEMSELVES. HOLY CRAP, you guys!

Since lightning in erupting volcanoes is about the most heavy metal thing, ever, I made a quick mock-up of what it must have looked like when Lemmy Kilmeister originally emerged from an erupting lightning volcano back in 666 BC:*


(The picture is actually of Lemmy a few moments later, as he descends into the jungle to stalk warm, living prey.)

* For the horrendously ignorant, Lemmy is the lead singer and bassist for Motorhead, still the best metal band in the world after over 30 years of touring and about three tons of hard drugs consumed to date.
