This is a truly majestically awesome sight.

While climbing Mount Semeru in Indonesia, Ryan Purvis happened to catch the volcano erupting. Not only can he tell his friends about it, but he's got the video proof, so he automatically has the best story to tell for every party he ever goes from now on.

Yeah, the guy who brags that he got a waitress to give him a free onion blossom appetizer has nothing on him.

Just take a look at how close he got to the volcano doing its volcano thing. It's like Mother's Nature's equivalent of sitting in the front row at a Beyonce concert. Right? No, okay, maybe that's a bit of stretch, but those seats are still pretty cool.
