Hellfire is just better launched as Hellfire: From YKTTW

Working Title: Hellfire is just better: From YKTTW

Kizor: Here is an argument about Convection Schmonvection in LOTR. It is of some interest but was in the wrong place.

  • Even in the books, Gollum got close enough to fall in instead of being incinerated near the brink.
  • Which is because in the book, it was depicted as the Crack of Doom, as in a realistic open chasm in the ground, extremely deep, not a giant chamber-of-flame.
    • Right. A crack or fissure in the middle of a volcano...
    • It wasn't in the middle of the volcano, it was one of the side-shafts branching off from the main chamber.
