Hawaii LiesScience brain teasers require understanding of the physical or biological world and the laws that govern it.
Blondulla is very imaginative and is known to "spice" up stories a bit, making some parts untrue.
After her trip to Hawaii, she was going to tell her mom what happened, but she really didn't do many exciting things. So, Blondulla, being the imaginative thinker she is, came up with a scenario.
"Mom, it was so exciting! I got to see one of the volcanoes erupt, it was amazing! The lava shot a few stories into the air, I've never seen anything like it! Oh, and I was watching a river of lava too! I was only seven feet away from it!".
After her mom heard this story, she knew that a part of it wasn't true. Which part wasn't true and why?
HintLava is known to spout a couple dozen stories into the sky, it wasn't that.
AnswerThe part that wasn't true is the part about watching the river of lava. The temperature of lava flow is usually about 700° to 1,250° Celsius, which is around 2,000° Fahrenheit, which would have blistered and burnt her skin in seconds at that range. To safely watch lava, you need to be farther away.
