I want to Argue... But Technically it's true....

No it isn't, Lava is liquid stone and just because its a liquid doesn't mean its drinkable.

Four things will get in the way: consistency, heat, cooling, our anatomy
>Its liquid stone mixed with glass, stone keeps it flowing and glass is like glue that keeps it together
>Its heat will set your face on fire long before you can get it near your mouth
>If you somehow manage to get the lava in your mouth the temperature difference will cool the lava long before you have a chance to swallow
>Your mouth would melt almost on contact so that doesn't really classify as "drinking" more like having a liquid in your mouth briefly then spitting it out.

so technically the lava would drink you?

Sounds like you attempt to drink it but die in the process. Guess you can only do that once.
User avatar #14 to #13 - moistnuggests (02/13/2014) [-]
The big word here is "attempt". The claim says you can do it once the fact is you can only "attempt" it once.

You won't drink anything just die trying.

All you need is a small amount to make it into your throat to be considered drinking. I think if you were determined enough you could do it. Then Die.

And Perhaps the picture is just trying to kill off a few idiots.

Ok, imagine this: very dense cold oatmeal mixed with jello and seasoned with a concentrated form of the worlds hottest pepper extract. "Drinking" this would be easier than drinking lava.

So you're telling me there's a chance..... YEA!

>Take a deep breath, so you don't inhale the fumes or heat as this will inflame your nose/tongue/throat
>Close your eyes so the heat doesn't get to them
>Make sure to do these next steps as quickly as possible
>>Take a cup full of lava and position it above your head
>>Keep the cup as far away from your head/face as possible
>>Open your mouth and pour the contents of the cup as quickly as possible down your throat

If you are determined enough, it is possible to make a 'swallowing' type gargle as your throat melts (from the deliciousness of the lava).

So, In Conclusion, Technically the Content is True.
User avatar #20 to #19 - moistnuggests (02/13/2014) [-]
No, technically its impossible; physically and semantically.

-Physically because your throat will either swell up or burn to a crisp before you can swallow. I should also mention that the lava when coming in contact with your body will cool down and solidify before it makes it to your throat.
-Semantically because drinking requires swallowing, if something makes it into your throat without you consciously "swallowing" it doesn't count.

But you said 'If you are determined enough, it is possible to make a 'swallowing' type gargle as your throat melts (from the deliciousness of the lava).'

So it's possible to Swallow in a sense, and you also did state that if you did it quick enough you could do it before you died.

Seems like you're just arguing with yourself now

'swallowing' type gargle and 'swallowing' are semantically different, technically you would "gargle" rather than "drink" the lava. Swallowing requires muscles in your throat to contract and relax which takes almost 2 seconds, this motion is impossible if half of those muscles are burned or on fire.

Also note this is all purely hypothetical, and while my opinion of this is that physically/semantically its impossible. All I have to go on is what I assume will happen based on my experiences with hot objects coming in contact with flesh.

I'm surprised you stuck around this long. You've put a lot of thought into this, but I've agreed with you since the first point. I've just run out of counters.
User avatar #24 to #23 - moistnuggests (02/13/2014) [-]
Well it was an interesting conversation on an otherwise boring day so I can't complain ^-^

I would actually like to see someone try it. Not because they would die, thats a given. I'm interested in how they will get close enough to drink it. Your face will probably melt off before it touches your lips
