Today the Department of Awesome Natural Wonders takes us to an incredibly hazardous location on the Indonesian island of Java: the Kawah Ijen volcano. Thanks to its sulphur content, this spectacular volcano produces ghostly blue lava and blue flames.
"Kawah Ijen is a part of the Ijen volcano complex – a group of stratovolcanoes in East Java, Indonesia – with an active crater that’s 200 meters deep. The complex is also home to the world’s largest turquoise-colored acidic lake, full of sulfuric acid. The lake is a sulfur mining site; miners carry sulfur-laden baskets by hand from the crater floor."
Visit Oddity Central to learn more about this noxiously amazing volcano and the people who risk their lives to making a living by working inside it.

Early Frozen character designs by Minkyu Lee
Remember when Frozen was visually confident and original?
Disney has never made a villainous character with a long cape, a thematically appropriate hat, and a staff of some kind.
Really blazing some new trails into uncharted territory there.
Yeah, I think giving a character a coat made of live animals is…fairly original.
