Ash

Stupidly neglected to include 'volcanic ash cloud causing economic collapse' from my end-of-the-world scenarios. Please consider it added.

Also, Iceland was just picking up some much needed dollars from the tourist market and so a volcano happens so that people can't fly there to spend spend spend. What has the universe got against Iceland? All they have is colourful knitted sweaters, epic poetry and rugged scenery, give them a break.

They have Bjork. This could go either way - in their favour if you are other people who like Bjork, or against them, if you are me, who finds her unforgivably ridiculous. Still not ash deserving though.

Oh, they brought it on themselves. They borrowed tons of cash to make their economy collapse, but long before that they settled right on the mid-atlantic ridge, which is always going to be a volcanic hot spot.

They need to wise up, think smarter etc, and probably move to the Bahamas.

I wonder if anyone is going to hold them liable for *their* volcano causing all this trouble....

They have matronymics and Sigur Ros to console them.

I have to pass this on:

London bankers asked Iceland for 3 billion pounds of CASH, dammit.
