1. Beautiful! What a planet.

At first I thought "crustal" was a typo and was going to make a joke about the U.S. Southern pronunciation of "crystal." Then I realized "pertaining to crust" would be "crustal."

As in "I have crustal cravings when it comes to pecan pie, but my nuttal cravings are stronger."

3. You're quite the analogizer! Yes, that's a word I recently read in an anthology of The Best Science

Fiction Stores of 1977. I'm using it myself now for the first time!

4. Watching the video, I thought, ' where's the marshmallows?'

And then I started to read all the posts.

Glad to know I'm not the only one who went there.

10. Sulfur and who knows what metals might be emitting fumes as it burns.

11. I actually think it LOOKS like my campfire marshmallows

Flames licking around in different spots as it blackens and gets all molten inside.

Iíve not been near a volcano but now I wonder if this would give off enough radiant heat to do a marshmallow from afar ó away from the noxious fumes

13. We were roasting marshmallow in the fireplace once when I was a kid. My marshmallow caught on

fire so I quickly raised it to blow it out. Unfortunately, I hit myself in the lip with the molten marshmallow and got a nasty burn. I've only been in volcanoes that were venting steam and sulfur fumes.

14. Yeah burning yourself is part of the ritual

Itís why Iíll never go near a volcano, since I cannot be trusted not to injure myself with marshmallows
