Those aren't just pools of water, though. They're hydrothermal vents full of dissolved acidic minerals. Temperatures have been measured in some of the pools at over 400 degrees F.

Probably go into shock within 5-seconds, so not much pain. Ask a lobster!

Unbelievable. And yet, some people do walk on the thin crusts of thermal pools and geysers, and sometimes they fall in and boil to death. These idiots are now wanted by the National Park Service, but I imagine they are long gone by now.

The unidentified men were issued a summons for thermal trespassing and they're set to appear in federal court in December, according to the National Parks Service.
Thermal trespassing. When I grow up, I want to become one of those evil supercriminals, and be an international thermal trespasser.

Next on their list, they went to the zoo
At the tiger cage, one had climbed through

With a stick in his hand, he poked the great beast
A picture was shot of the man now deceased.

May they do so. They are idiots, as well as lawbreakers. I hope they get assessed a hefty fine.
