    Pesky volcanoes. Mind you, there was that BA flight back in 82 that flew through the volcanic cloud in SE Asia. They got down OK, but the message to the passengers over the intercom must be one of the greatest pieces of understatement in aviation history:

    "Hello, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem. All four engines have stopped. We`re doing our damnedest to get them going again. Trust you`re not in too much distress."

    The reason they grounded the planes is because volcanic ash destroys jet engines from the inside out.

    Dude, what the hell are you talking about? That was Scottish. Unless you`re talking about a completely different incident, in which case you shouldn`t be posting here.

    Also, it`s inadequacy.

    I thought it was interesting that his first "I hate Ice-Land" was loud and then he realized that he didn`t have a follow up, or wit, or anything going for him. He trails off with a sorry, self-hating repetition, and wanders off to plan his next news-cast bomb a little better. Poor, poor, Scotsman... I feel bad for the bloke.

    Do you really define race as nationality? A serious question, as there aren`t any biological grounds for race, so any definition of it is just made up by the speaker.

    If you emigrated to Canada, would you think of yourself as having changed race?
