lol, the Sun is even worse with their puns, play on words and spoonerism.

To help keep on topic, there was a 2.3 earthquake recorded in the Scottish Highlands (near Loch Ness) a few days ago.

I climbed up Mount Teide back in the early 80s. It is quite surprising how hot the ground is there when you dig down a little... and that's from an alegedly dormant volcano.

Is it Gran Canaria that is in danger of falling to pieces?

We have a volcano here on Lanzarote called Timanfaya, where they take tourists and scrape a little of the gravel off the surface and then pick some up from only a few centimetres below the surface on a shovel, they put it into peoples' hands and most can't hold on to it.  Nest they shove a bit of brush wood down a hole 2m deep and it catches fire from the heat down there and finally they pour a bucket of water down a bore hole 20m (might be 12m, can't remember) and it comes back up as a jet of steam.  they also have a grill which sits above a fissure and the food is cooked from the heat rising from the fissure.

And the island which will fall into the sea is La Palma, it already has a great crack in it, I've been looking at houses in the hills myself!

They should come up with a new way to measure earthquakes, a 2.3 earthquake sounds like roughly one which is 1/4 of the intensity of what hit Japan, it's not even 1/1000000

Yeah, I've noticed a few newspapers have started adding "several billion less energy released than the Japanese earthquake" (something like that) when reporting an earthquake in the UK, as if to reassure their readers.  :doh:

Did you, by any chance, read this article in the Daily Mail? I remember a work colleague showing me it a few years ago.

You really should read more respectable newspapers such as The Guardian etc.... ;)  :lol:

The gaurniad a respectable newspaper?

The idea that the gaurniad is a newspaper at all is pushing it a little. And no, I don't read the mail.

For some reason I always thought it was Gran Canaria as well, until I moved here.
