More from Eyjafjallajokull

From The Big Picture:

As ash from Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano continued to keep European airspace shut down over the weekend, affecting millions of travelers around the world, some government agencies and airlines clashed over the flight bans. Some restricted airspace is now beginning to open up and some limited flights are being allowed now as airlines are pushing for the ability to judge safety conditions for themselves. The volcano continues to rumble and hurl ash skyward, if at a slightly diminished rate now, as the dispersing ash plume has dropped closer to the ground, and the World Health Organization has issued a health warning to Europeans with respiratory conditions. Collected here are some images from Iceland over the past few days.

A Transcript of an Argument I Had With My GPS Last Night

Mrs. C and I went out last night and had dinner at a sushi place. I wasn’t familiar with the area but we had to stop at a supermarket after dinner. I found one with my iPhone and entered the address into my car’s GPS. Here’s the transcript of the last leg of the trip:

GPS: Go right in 200 feet.
(We go 200 feet)
GPS: Go right.
Me: Ok.
GPS: When possible, make a U-turn.
(Makes U turn)
GPS: When possible, make a U-turn.
Me: Wait, I JUST DID THAT.
(Drives a little bit down the road)
GPS: When possible make a U-turn.
Me: FINE! FINE! We’ll make ANOTHER U-Turn.
(Makes U-turn)
GPS: When possible, make a U-Turn.
Me: FUCK YOU! Two U-Turns make a circle. Are you OBTUSE?
GPS: When possible, make a U-Turn.
Me: FUCK IT. WE’LL DO IT LIVE. FUCKING THING SUCKS.
Mrs. C: Can you pull over. I want to get out.
GPS: When possible, make a U-turn.
