I can't believe I have to say this but, stay out of volcanoes. -- Anon Guest
Of all the multiple and nuanced arguments in favour of Humanity being an insane species, there is one that is simply one word:
Though the field of science exists across any species born on a world with tectonic activity, only the Humans ever came up with the idea of wandering around and poking at a mountain that might explode. Everyone else was sensible about it, inventing probes, robots, and other non-invasive means of finding out the how and why of exploding mountains.
