Get Lost ~ the island doesn’t want you here

Remember the story about the new volcanic island Hunga Ha’apai forming near Tonga in March 2009?  Here’s the video:

 

The strange part is that one man decided to be (perhaps?) the first person to take a step on it.  His story is crazy enough that you would think he would get the hint that the island wants him to go away.  It reads like an episode of Lost.  The whole event makes you wonder why anybody would risk their life just to be a part of airborne mud.  Ahh, our great love of tropical islands.
