The latest from Sky News is that several NATO fighter jets have suffered engine damage due to flying through the ash cloud. I guess it's not that safe, after all.

Well, I'm stuck on the late shift at work for the fifth week running as my colleague went to Brazil for three weeks holiday and has now been stuck in Spain (they diverted him there) since last Thursday.

Fucking bastard ash cloud, I want an early shift, fuck off you stupid stuff. :lol:

Loretta is still stuck in Ibiza and missed our meet-up. He made no effort what so ever to get to mainland Spain and walk up to Calias. What a git. I'll bet at this very minute he's in some bar pissed up and not worring at all about us back at home.

We spent the whole weekend making Loretta the butt of our jokes.

My only consolation is that this weekends weather has been better in the UK than on the Med.

All joking apart it must be a nightmare being stuck abroad. When I spoke to Loretta on his mobile he sounded geniunely pissed off.

Talking to a work accomplice who's been talking to a friend of his who works on the weather BA146, there's two bands of this shit bothering us. One sat below 10,000 ft, and another that stretches from about 25,000 ft up to 60,000 ft. The second of these is really light particles caught in a high pressure isobar shape spiralling around the UK, and it's not noticeably going anywhere at the moment.

lol, now the idiotic asshole ministers will allow flying again as it damages economy, and before you can say "fuck the government" the first planes will crash due to damage done by the ash cloud

it's always the same, people are just stupid 8-)

Continental plates shifting isn't the doing of mankind.

If we weren't here, what do you reckon would happen to oilfields in the way of volcanic and seismic activity?
I think they'd get vapourised much the same way that a Toyota does it, only without a catalytic converter.

I used to work with an Icelandic bloke, a real hoot.

He used to tell English girls that his family usually ate Penguin steaks instead of chicken ones. All these ladies would say "Oh, I wouldn't want to live in Iceland then!"

Nobody asked the volcano what it thought about lifting the no-fly ban.

Fresh cloud on it's way, just in time to close the London airports, just as they were about to reopen.

At this rate, it won't be that long before you start noticing certain things being either very expensive in supermarkets, or not available at all.
