    You missed a chance to make a joke about the deadly Lake Kivu on the rift zone. This lake is known to have killed thousands, perhaps tens of thousands, in just a an hour or two, and will kill a million or two in the future as it's shores become more densely populated. Kivu has magmatic gasses trapped under its surface at high pressure. Among these gasses is massive amount of methane, and an even more massive amount of CO2. All is fine in this part of the world until the gasses build up enough pressure that it explodes out of the lake, like popping the cork on a champagne bottle. This type of eruption is called a Limnic eruption, and it has happened in recent times on another lake in Africa not associated with the rift. That lake's name is Nyos, and in 1986 a Limnik eruption occurred spilling perhaps as much as 1.5 million tons of CO2 into the neighboring valley. The air around the lake became saturated with CO2 and killed 1,700+ people and more than 3,500 head of livestock. The scary part is that Lake Nyos is much, much smaller than lake Kivu, and methane is heavier than air. This means that when Lake Kivu erupts, almost everyone who lives within 30-50 miles of the lake shore will almost certainly die of asphyxiation. We're talking about millions of people...all dying at once. Currently, there are measures being taken to alleviate the gaseous deposits in the lake, but they are small and rather futile at the moment, and the gas continues to build more and more pressure. It's a ticking time bomb that almost no one knows about.
