After the Christchurch earthquake, a lot of people in Auckland said things like, “We won’t have to deal with earthquakes up here, for us it’ll be lava/eruptions/a new volcano.”
This would invariably be followed by laughter, because lava is hilarious, don’t you know. Oh yes. HILARIOUS.
Couldn’t see the joke, myself. But I am fairly humourless when it comes to molten rock and poisonous ash clouds. Surprise!
Anyway. There is a mini-movie on TV tonight that is guaranteed to fuel my paranoia about Auckland volcanoes. It’s called ERUPTION.
Totally taping it. Obviously.
