lago feito de lava

Cair em um lago feito de lava é, provavelmente, a forma mais “instantânea” de morrer. Ao contrário do que vemos nos filmes — em que se uma pessoa cai na lava o corpo começa a ser consumido e afundado em partes, como se estivesse em uma areia movediça —, o que aconteceria na verdade seria ver “fogos de artifício”.

The initial thought was that it might be a musket ball, but it’s rather on the big side for that – more like a small cannon ball or piece of grapeshot.
