Really, you know how to pronounce Barðarbunga? How exactly do you pronounce the letter "ð"?

Besides which, the eruption is actually closer to "Dyngjujökull" . Seriously Iceland?

Please don't say that! My wife is in Iceland till Monday. She's in Reykyavik, so I'm hoping the westbound flights will remain unaffected. (flying KEF to Boston)

Cat-like volcano not detected.
 
2014-08-23 09:29:51 PM  
Did Iceland choose these names by throwing scrabble tiles on the ground?
 
2014-08-23 09:36:50 PM  
I am pretty drunk and can indeed pronounce that volcano's name correctly according to the video. Good job, subby!

Yes! THE PM of Poland died and the TP pretended to get all butthurt that Obama didn't attend the funeral.

So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one -- big hitter, the Lama -- long, into a ten-thousand foot crevice, right at the base of this glacier. And do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga...gunga -- gunga galunga.
 
2014-08-23 09:56:24 PM  
Snæfellsjökull is still okay, though, right?

Friends spent a few extra days shopping in Paris. Their company then drove them to Spain where the air was clear enough to fly home.

I just hope Putin doesn't seize this opportunity to invade Moscow.

No, but in icelandic the names really aren't that interesting. Eyjafjallajökull literally means "Ice on top of the Mountain". South shore of Iceland is a pretty surreal place though.

Eyjafjallajökul is "aye-yaf-yalla-yerkel" in my non-discernible accent.

Hmm. Lots of movement in the last hour. 1.x magnitude every minute or so now.

there are typically lots of small earthquakes after the largest quake - aftershocks ...
but in theory, you can only tell if they are aftershocks once the BIG ONE has happened ...

probably completely different for volcanos ...
