Volcanic Eruptions

I’m a big fan of wtf_nature, a livejournal community where members can post all the weird shenanigans earth has been up to.  A recent post of a huge underwater volcanic eruption off the coast of Tonga had me googling other volcanic eruptions because they are (obviously) awesome.
