Sleight of Mind and Limnic Eruption

Sleight of Mind by George Johnson from the NYTimes, cognitive science meets vegas: Money quote:

“Stage magicians know that a collection of cheap tricks will often suffice to produce ‘magic,’ ” Dr. Dennett has written, “and so does Mother Nature, the ultimate gadgeteer.”
And Limnic Eruption from the wikipedia:
Limnic Eruption, or exploding lake, is a rare type of natural disaster only observed twice, but the 1986 incident killed over 1700 people.
