    I remember visiting the volcano national park HI and they had a ranger suite there that was half burnt away because a ranger was leading a group of scientists throughout the field of lava rocks and fell in a spot that was still hot lava and the rock was not hardened yet. Thankfully the ranger survived but I reckon he wished he didn’t with the agonizing pain he went through.

    He took so long, standing on the edge like that because he was thinking weather to toss the ring in to the fire. I think the last second bubbling over the edge as he ran just meant he did it, so props to him.
