The Gray Ooze That Ate the Indonesian Villages

For more than three months, the hot, noxious goop has spewed up through a crack in the earth at a natural-gas exploration site, swamping everything in its path.

The expanding, surreal gray lake with the stench of rotten eggs has enveloped more than 10 square miles of land in eastern Java, Indonesia's most densely populated island. The flow has forced 8,000 to 10,000 people from their homes, engulfed about a dozen factories, contaminated fish farms and intermittently closed a major highway.

What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.

that just about describes it.

I believe it was from a volcanic vent (volcanoes sometimes spew hot mud) Which would also explain the rotten egg smell (sulpher).
