These Diverse Things (Animals, Weather, Sports) Can Certainly Harm You
22 June 2008 | by (Lockport, NY, United States) – See all my reviews

This was an extremely interesting Modern Marvels episode, one of the better ones I've viewed. Of course, the topic is pretty intense: volcanoes, snake bites, tornadoes and base jumping. As the title indicates, all of these things can be very, very dangerous to one's health.

Volcanoes - The most dangerous volcano in the world today: Mount Vesuvius - did it once, will do it again. The most dangerous in the U.S.A.? The northwest area of Mt. Rainier, where are 13 volcanoes. The problem they will cause: lahars. What's a lahar? It's all the mud that rolls down like a raging river of wet cement.

The most dangerous, years from now: Yellowstone Park. Big-time eruptions.

Snakes - The most dangerous in the U.S.? The diamondback rattlesnake. This programs offers a lot of interesting info on different snakes, their bites and remedies. The country with the highest death rate because of bites: Sri Lanka.

Tornadoes - Why are mobile homes always trashed with tornadoes? No foundations. Worst blitz of these frightening funnels? In 1925, the Tri-State tornado killed 695 people over a 3 1/2 hour rampage. The worst fear - that one will touch down on a sporting event where thousands of spectators don't have time to disperse.

Sports - the most dangerous? (American) football. Many, many concussions but football helmets have come a long way, as we see in this episode. The most extreme sport? Base jumping. People jump from a high spot. There is no time for a reserve chute to open. It's a rush.
