Does this mean I'm edgy? :D

Well I think it's more about my origin.
I remember in German class, we had to do little presentations about our countries in German (with our bad German yes..) and I told a story about the Cracatoa (Krakatau in Indonesian) cos we have volcanoes all accross the country and my tribe actually comes from an island which in the middle of Lake Toba, biggest volcanic crater lake in the world, which is a part of the most powerful volcano in the world, read this, you'll be amazed;

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Toba

the little island itself called Samosir island, and there's a very small traditional port, only for fishermans ship which has the same name with my family name, and that's where my family comes from, maybe someday we can go there together :) btw my tribe is called Batak Toba., the language called the same, this is how the script looks like.

so why i suddenly talk about volcanoes, well it's been kinda my obsession to see if not the biggest, its one of the biggest volcano in the world which once entitled as 'The world's navel' or the belly button of the world, because on its largest explosion in 1883; the recordings show that the shockwave from the final explosion reverberated around the globe 7 times in total. you can read it up in wikipedia or here http://www.krakatau-tour.com/site/krakatau-volcano-adventure-tour-indonesia.html

yes finally after years of admiration, I'm going to see its majesty, this is one link of latest documentation of it http://www.volcanodiscovery.com/volcano-tours/photos/krakatau/july09/vulcanian-eruptions.html
I hope when we get there, there will be no significant explosion or what I'm most afraid of is tsunami :D , well we're gonna be in safe distance hopefully. I will post pics when I get back, but if not remember I love you guys,,,just kidding hehe ;)
but I do think if Toba explodes again, I think Indonesia will be a history, well at least for sure my homeland or my tribe, I will be extinct, like an orangutan, so guys see Indonesia before it explodes, or at least be very nice to me, I'm endangered species hehehhe,,,I'm just blabbering, have a nice summer!!!

well I'm going with a bunch of people that I would meet for the first time tomorrow,,,so let's see if they're not such crazy adrenaline freaks and go too near :D
next edgy thing would be giving my dog a bath tomorrow morning, he is a good dod, but bathing is such a battle with him and i always end up with many scratches, what a brat heheh
