Haha if i were to stumble on one of these bad boys in the 1600\’s or before i would probably have taken a bath in it. looks bad ass. We don\’t give mother nature enough cred for the kinda shit she whips up.

but for real its no fountain of youth. found it on some pic of the day sites

    +10 to nyokki for proving a repost and not having to say it.

    But still, the water will kill you.

    The water is about 200 degrees Farenheit (38c). It would parboil you right quick.

    Happened to a co-worker — his dog jumped in a pool at Yellowstone, and he waded in to rescue it. Not smart, and the dog died anyway. He was in the hospital for a couple weeks.

    Ruined his vacation. 🙂

    My father burned his foot by this thing. I’m surprised there isn’t a gate or something around it.

    Actually it is the fountain of youth. The water blisters the age right out of the body in what top scientists suspect is a miracle.

    The Grand Prismatic Spring at Yellowstone. You have to scramble up a hill to get that view- it’s HUGE. If you haven’t been to Yellowstone- GO.

    Yellowstone is TIKI’s most favorite place in the world to visit… he just loves steam… ROFLMFAO!!!

    @storminator: He certainly had a lot to say about it.

    too bad that if you had decided to take a bath in it all your skin would quickly burn off and you would be painfully dissolved into boiling hot, crazy-acidic water

    My co-worker was the guy in the Update, from Washington state. The update says he was in the hospital overnight — probably correct, but he had bandages on and was in mega-pain for a couple weeks.

    @bawb: I can’t even imagine that pain. When I was little would go to the beach and make candles. Shape a hole in semi wet sand (make a mold), melt colored wax, pour it in the hole and wait for it to harden. One day, I was chasing our dog (terrier)around and stepped right into one of the holes that had very hot wax in it. I remember screaming and my dad picking me up and rushing me to the water. Of course that hurt even more at first. I ended up in the ER, but I was fine, just… Read more »
