Volcano in Japan Blows Again?

Mount Shinmoedake in Japan has blown its top! This was the location of the fake lake in the James Bond movie ‘You Only Live Twice’.  Ernst Blofeld, the evil villain, had his secret missile base under the lake. This movie had one of the best lines from Blofeld…

BLOFELD: Close the shutters. We are now impregnable.

LOL! The shutters were these flimsy looking things more suited to a Martha Stewart catalog. Whereupon Bond proceeded to escape, blow the place up and escape with the girl. Great movie! Blofeld obviously needed a better Real Estate Agent.

Shinmoedake, though calm on its face
Is a new evil villain test case.
If Bond hadn’t blown it
The eruption has shown it
As not the best place for a base.
