    Oh, no worries, I wasn't offended. And Iceland has a number of ready-to-go volcanoes nearby, so who knows what will happen. The whole situation just shows how vulnerable people really are and no matter how advanced our technology is, when the system goes tits up, we're all in a shock for a while.

    Apparently the volcano could erupt many more times in a very short space of time, which is of course a possibility but it depends whether the media are over-sensationalizing it

    Hmmm like some sorta weird domino effect gone wrong...Somehow though, despite this people still take nature on, and acheive some truly incredible and aspirational feats, which is admirable, however in conjunction with what Sky said, perhaps sometimes it might be advisable for people to leave nature alone because it can send us into chaos whenever it feels like it.

However, it's good that you brought up the volcanic dust issue, I've been wondering why this topic hasn't been mentioned in the current events section. Seems like a big deal to me after all. Are people's minds so up in the air that they fail to notice anything else around them? Interesting.
    The focus has been on the tourists and people stranded, but there are other implications. A lot of goods are sent by air too and a lot of companies besides the airlines are going to be losing money due to missed contracts and late deliveries.

    I'm just sort of surprised that no one has a Plan B. It's not as if this hasn't happened before in the past. I'm guessing we'll see a lot of patents on ash-resistant jet engines in the very near future

    Exactly, this influences a lot of people who are dependent on this. And that's not good for anybody. Everything is connected.

    I know! Every time something big happens people are in shock or running around like headless chickens. Doesn't anybody think in advance, or the people who do don't have the means to make themselves heard or what exactly is it? Poor management and inability to organize things fast enough? That's what you get for being too comfortable with things that are seemingly working well. Plan B's, ftw.
