Friend sent me a video, titled "New Zealand Volcano Eruption in Real Time".
Can't seem to find a way to post a LINK to it.
Tried to find it on Youtube, but not there.

Anyway: It SEEMS to be from a secruity camera, high up on a building, aimed down the street , toward the ocean.
Shows the sea bubbling, then all hell breaks loose, an wave and a cloud of smoke rush toward shore, and when the smoke clears, the buildings near the shore are VERY badly damaged.

BUT- it looks fake.
No people or cars are seen moving, AND the volcanic forces which damaged the OTHER buildings, did not shake the camera, not even a fraction of a degree, and the point of view does not change in the slightest from the first part of the video to the end.

ALSO: all the New Zealand volcano shots I could find on Yotube show an eruption of an existing island, NOT something bubbling up from beneath the water.

So, I'm asking you New Zealanders: Anybody know if it erupted from underwater, or if it came out of an existing crater?

I sent the link to THAT video, with the information RIGHT THERE, that it IS a simulation, to the people who sent that video along to so many others.

On a related note:
A local Wisconsin mother re-enacted s scene with her two daughters, based on something which DID happen to someone else, NOT her, and NOT her daughters.
Posted it on social media, with a VERY CLEAR label that it was based on a true story.

A child reported to her own mother that Mom's boyfriend had touched her inappropriately, and the mother did not believe the child.

But other people RE-posted it, WITHOUT tagging it as a re-enactment, and the mom who ORIGINALLY posted it has gotten threats and condemnations for "allowing" HER boyfriend to "get away with it".

So, folks, let's not blindly pass along as "REAL", something we BELIEVE is real, without trying very VERY hard to determine that it is REAL, and not a re-enactment or an artistic rendering or a deliberate fake.

For example:

Gioachino Rossinii was NOT hired by MGM Studios to write a theme song for The Lone Ranger.

And/or

Albert Einstein did NOT  give up the banjo and take up mathematics after being pelted with sauerkraut at a talent contest in  his home town, the German city of Ulm.

Well, howdy, Don!

I gave up the banjo, after being driven off the stage, back in the day,  took up the fiddle.

But I do so LOVE the sound of banjo!

I'll grab my fiddle, you grab your banjo, and let's do an old German folk song!

-Albert-

===========================

Got me a gal 'cross Danube creek,

Go up to see her once a week.

Keep my lederhosen 'bove my knees,

Wade old Danube Creek, when I please

(CHORUS)

Going up Danube Creek, going on the run, going up Danube Creek, have some fun!

Going up Danube Creek, going on the run, going up Danube Creek, have some fun!

It definitely is a simulation. The "volcano" in question is the extinct one just outside Auckland in the Hauraki Gulf. If any volcano here erupted (we have a number) we would know about it.

I could be wrong, but I believe it destroyed the island. Underwater explosions create Tsunamis and the like, and I don't recall hearing about those, just that is blew up while tourist were out and about. If it was underwater, it was close to show. It could easily have been both.

@Mander: In the immediate follow-up. I reported that I discovered the video I was sent, WAS a computer simulation, not a live video.

THAT was the main question.
