Eyjafjallajökull

It’s funny watching or listening the news at the moment.  Obviously the volcano ash induced air cancellations are causing no end of problems in Europe.  However every time they discuss it they always refer to the volcano eruption in Iceland. Why don’t they refer to it by name, I’m means there was St Helens, Vesuvius and Krakatua so why not call the volcano by it name, Eyjafjallaj√∂kull, how hard can that be? Eh very! Any way here is wikipedia to the rescue:

Where is my Hoverboard?

I have been saying this for years.  I can’t believe we are now so close to 2015 (2010 at the moment) and there is no sign of a hoverboard any where. Futurologists back 30/50/100 years ago were promising all kinda of thing, flying cars, cities on the moon.  None of that mattered a damn to me, all I wanted was a hover board.  Here I am in my mid 30s and still no feckin sign of one. If the thing ever does get invented I’ll be too old to enjoy one.

I was so incensed I was going to set up a facebook group to petition governments to invest in inventing this technology, wasn’t I surprised to find out that there was a group already, Its 2010, where the hell is my hoverboard!? , and it already has a membership of 120,000. I think this figure speaks for itself and there is obviously a groundswell of people who want this technology and they want it now. Join now! Yes we can!

UPDATE: OK it’s 2015 and I still don’t have a hoverboard, but I do have a shop selling T-Shirts and Mugs with the above image over on cafepress, I set the shop up years ago, but there seems to be some buzz as a result of like this year so check it out, Mavek Enterprises.
