WATCH: What Happens If You Step On Lava?

By

Ever wondered what would happen if you stepped on molten lava?

Thankfully, you don’t have to try it for yourself and you can just watch the video below.

*PLEASE DO NOT TRY THIS. USE SOME COMMON SENSE AND DON’T BE AN IDIOT, OKAY? IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK FOR?*

“When the lava emerges from one of the vents at Kilauea, it comes out at 700 to 1,200 °C (1,292 to 2,192 °F), and begins to make its way to the path of least resistance. This video shows how pressure applied to this dense material only causes a slight indentation. While this may not be surprising (it is liquid rock), I think that many people think of lava as more of a hot-watery-like substance. You would never fall into a lava lake the way you would a swimming pool, the molten rock is much more dense, so you would simply land on it, sink a little, and be burned.”

I’m not sure what I really expected to happen, but I was pretty satisfied with the result.

I’d love to see what the bottom of his shoe looked like afterwards. It could be a pretty sweet marketing tool for whoever makes those hiking shoes if they weren’t completely destroyed from this attempt.

Also, I have to ask… why would you ever do this? There had to be a greater-than-75% chance that his whole foot could have caught on fire, right? I like YouTube for what it’s worth, but there are some really dumb people out there…
