of late (Japan, Myramar (sp?), New Zealand, Chile, et al, I wonder if "son of Krakatoa" will blow it's top like Papa did in 1883? That event killed tens of thousands outright, changed the global weather for five or six years, and I see that Anak Krakatoa is growing and spouting flame and smoke again. I just finished the book by Simon Winchester; Krakatoa: The Day the World Exploded and it got me to wondering is why I thought to post this here. A quick google search showed up some pretty staggering photos of the latest activity in the area.
