Eyjafjallajökull, now say that 5 times really fast!

I have become fascinated by this crazy volcano that's been spewing it's guts since 21st of March. It's closed hundreds of airports and brought airline companies to their knees! Maybe it's a reminder to take care of the planet, like the earth is saying "don't mess with me, I don't f**k around!", yet it is such a beautiful thing. Mother nature in all it's frightening glory! Don't get me wrong it's annoying as hell, I know several people that are stranded and are going to miss some pretty important occasions due to the ash. But there's no-one to blame or get mad at and nothing nobody can do, except sit back, let it happen and remember don't forget Mother Nature will mess you up!
