Probably not a good idea to get too close to the edge. The Wiki piece mentions that when the (mad) scientists decided to burn off the gas "expectations were that the gas would burn within days, but it is still burning, more than four decades after it was set on fire". Money to burn.

Since the group owner was supposedly busy, he appointed me as one of the moderators. So, I took the liberty of changing the group picture on the front page from Dore's, "The Flood", to one of Michelangelo's sibyl in the Sistine Chapel. When the owner found out, he went bonkers and rescinded my my moderator status ever since. But I decided to stay on the group since the picture of the sibyl is still on the group's front page. Anyway, FWIW. ---In email@example.com, <j_alexander_stanley@...> wrote: Google image search says it's this place: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Door_to_Hell http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Door_to_Hell ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <jr_esq@...> wrote: Is this a fake photo creation or is it real?
