Hot Lava!

  1. Hot Lava, but Cool post! I heard the last time Eyjafjallajökull erupted in 1821 it erupted continuously for 2 Years! It will probably take me that long to pronounce it’s name…

  2. Eric, I haven’t heard anyone actually attempt to pronounce it, so when you do I hope I’m around to hear it.

    Thanks for the links, Carol!

    1. Thanks, Carol. I still could not pronounce it but it was lovely to hear. That’s an interesting clip. “Almost like speaking Viking” — who knew? I doubted the talking head who introduced the interpreter as one of only 2655 people who spoke Icelandic, so I looked it up. Of course he was way off; Wikipedia puts it at over 320,000. (Here are the sources.) Interestingly, his figure is being repeated all over the Internet and sourced to ABC News.

  3. Maybe he meant that of the 320,000 people who speak Icelandic, only 2655 of them can pronounce Eyjafjallajökull…;8^)

    PS – I thought this was a neat desktop wallpaper…
