In a different week, the story of an erupting volcano in Iceland or a cargo ship that gets stuck in the Suez Canal would be remarkable enough to stand on its own. However, both events occurring at the same time are an unprecedented example of how people around the world react to giant things that make life more difficult.
Iceland volcanic eruption
Iceland has responded to the eruption of the Geldingadalir volcano with a healthy mix of scientific curiosity and human absurdity. In order to safely accommodate international Rubberneckers, The country has set up a live broadcast of the natural phenomenon which allows users to experience the vicarious thrill of hanging out next to a deadly lava field without being burned alive in the process.
While the live broadcast suggests that Iceland is made up entirely of mature and no-nonsense observers, other activities show that its citizens cannot resist our species’ constant urge to look at the overwhelming power of nature and just have a little fun with it. . For example, a tour guide named Sveinn Snorri Sighvatsson decided to celebrate the Geldingadalir eruption by walking to the lava field, dressing in a scarf and sunglasses, and posing naked by some photos. “A festival is not a true festival unless someone strips naked”, explained to reporters. In news related to hot sausage, Icelandic scientists took a break from studying the volcano to cook some dogs in lava.
Suez Crisis, stupid edition
The appropriately cheeky 21st century sequel from 1956 Suez crisis can have a Horrible impact on the environment and local and global economies. in the very near future. BBut for now at least we can enjoy how monumentally ridiculous it is that the crew of a great ship called Ever Given have disrupted a vital shipping route by putting his ship in a canal like a bunch of first-time drivers who massively fail their first parallel parking attempt. Many people have reacted to the Ever Given dilemma by pointing out how silly he looks see a comparatively small crane trying to free the ship, creating the inevitable Memes like “tfw when” in the process, while others marvel at the fact that a colossal shit has roll back modern trade routes centuries. However, the truly enlightened still enjoy the fact that this huge cock started with Ever Given drawing a huge real cock in the water. when your pre-stuck course is seen on a map.
The entire Suez Canal situation is so silly that Florida, seemingly eager for its title of home to the world’s most inexplicable behavior, is trying to spring into action. For now, the state has only handled a small facsimile of Suez—a 40 foot boat fell from a trailer to Interstate 10 block“But we have faith that you can do better by the end of the weekend.”
