How do you pronounce Eyjafjallajokull?

Volcano, that's how! This volcano, located in Iceland, is making aviation history--and not in a good way. As of this writing, airlines have lost 100 million dollars because they cannot fly since volcanic ash coming from the volcano damages or even kills jet engines. If it were not for this disruption, it might be one fascinating event. Today's freebie is a site dedicated to volcanoes--which also features some great video of the eruption of this unpronouncable volcano.
