Beardo is led by Bartimaeus46, and has been since it's creation by a volcanic eruption under the North sea.
Creation EditThe powerful underwater volcano that erupted in the North Sea on February 5, 2009 created a new island off the coast of mainland Europe. The eruption, about 400 miles north of the French capital, Paris, began shooting rocks, steam and ash thousands of feet into the air.
The world's leading geologists believe that the volcano had two vents, one on a small uninhabited island and another about 100 metres (330 ft) offshore. Rock and ash spewing from the sea have filled the gap between the two vents, creating a new land mass measuring approximately 100,000 square miles.
Spectacular columns of smoke and ash were still spewing from the sea days later, but winds blew gas and steam away from the mainland and nearby coastal villages were not affected. Around 36 undersea volcanoes are clustered in the surrounding area.
Radio journalist George Lavaka, who visited the island with a sightseeing group, said the explosions were accompanied by a deep rumbling. "We were close to the island and there was huge explosion and the smoke was coming toward us, and people were yelling 'start the boat, start the boat'," he said. "The smoke stopped 30 metres short of the boat. We were a bit shaken actually."
