If this new one blows, we can expect Míla to get a web cam to let us keep an eye on it. There is a link to Míla's volcano cams under the volcano image on my sidebar too.

  1. When Yellowstone blows, it's going to make iceland's volcanos seem puny by comparison. We do everything bigger and better here. USA! USA! ;-)

  2. The Gulf Blowout already makes them look puny and nontoxic....

  3. A fart compared to what will happen when Yellowstone goes off.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Yes, but WHEN is Yellowstone going off? You keep mentioning it, but it never seems to HAPPEN.

  5. I wonder if it will hurt me much in my Himalayan cave....

  6. When Eyjafjallajokul was erupting there was talk of a larger sister volcano which historically erupted shortly after or in concert with Eyjafjallajokul.

    But I believe it was closer to Eyjafjallajokul and that this is another volcano entirely.

  7. Unless the jet stream reverses it will get to you in that cave before it gets to where you now live...

  8. I dare you to say that three times fast....

  9. Crap, I can't even say it once!

  11. I don't even think they can say it in Iceland.

  12. And you can't even SPELL it! :o]

    You left off the final L....

  13. Actually, technically, I THINK, it's supposed to be:

    Eyjafjallajökull frá Þórólfsfelli

    which, I THINK, means Thorolfsfell Glacier... and STILL can't be said three times fast!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Or, obviously, Thorolfsfell Volcano.

    I mean, I THINK, eyjafjallajökull means both glacier and volcano....

    ReplyDelete
  15. But I could learn to spit out "Thorolfsfell" pretty easily... but eye-jaf-jalla-joke-cull can't be anywhere close to how you SAY that.

  16. Is that a guess or is that a fact?

    And look at these jackasses....

  17. I don't think they turn their J's into Y's... else why would they bother having both?

    ReplyDelete
  18. educated guess. Not sure how to phonetically spell the sound of an umlauted o, but I'm pretty sure their j sounds like the German j, as in Ja, mein Führer.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I mean, you say the J in "Jónsdóttir"...?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh! I don't CARE. I'll learn to speak through a mouth full of marbles and dodge lava glops if I can just live in their hot springs.

    ReplyDelete
  21. The Y modifies the sound of the vowel preceding it?
    i suppose googling icelandic pronunciation guide would work.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Umlauted letters are pronounced differently in every language and differently according to what letters are around them. It's a fucking hellish mess. In some languages, ours, it just means you don't pronounce the two vowel sounds together. Then there's the problem with names like Koenan and Joeger. Caynan and Yager. Nobody gets those right. Goethe stumps half the world or more too.

    I know it's desperately un-PC, but I'd LOVE it if everyone would just settle on ONE language... preferably English... so I don't have to sound any stupider.

    ReplyDelete
  23. But it does not EVEN sound like that. A-ya-fyat-la-yo-kutz comes closer.

  25. And you can't even SPELL it! :o]
    You left off the final L....


    Ha! Then neither can the folks at Mail Online - I copied and pasted it from the caption below the first photo in their article!

  26. You gotta listen to those hairdos trying to say it! LOL... just nuts.

  27. Goethe stumps half the world or more too.

    We used to have a park along the American River named after Charles M. Goethe who donated land for the park and left his $24 million estate to CSU Sacramento, which he founded in 1947.

    But then...

    Community members began pushing for a name change, as they believed the nod to the late eugenicist and Nazi follower did not represent the general feeling of the community.

    I used to cringe at everyone calling it "Gatey" park or "Goeth" park.

    In my German class I learned it was similar to Goot-eh

    (My German teacher is the only person who has ever pronounced my last name correctly the first time.)

  28. Oh crap - wrong tag button again!

  29. Try Kurt Gödel on 'em. They freak. Whaddya mean "Girdle"? He was a fucking mathematician, not a women's undergarment!
