Gunshueiping Mud Volcano, Yanchao
Taiwan

The Gunshueiping Mud Volcano is on the Gunshueiping with an altitude of 30 meters at the boundary between Haifong Village of Ciaotou District and Jiaosu Village of Yanchao District in Kaohsiung City. There is a small hill with an elevation of 2 meters, and on top of the hill is the opening of mud spray with a diameter of 0.5 meters. Gray underground fluid flows out of the mud fumaroles and usually carries fathomless methane. When tested with long bamboo sticks, the sticks are soon all buried, making the volcano appear like a bottomless pit. Due to sunshine over a long period of time, the gray mud that flows out to the ground becomes dry and forms all sorts of strange and unique shapes.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
