Coming back to harbour. #Iceland
Incredibly, Alan the lifeboat's first episode over on the 'Tube has hit seven figures. Who knew. I'd not yet learned to mix sound properly, and it used legacy footage.
Casual Icelandic signage aggression.
People leaving food uneaten in restaurants hurts me very deeply, but in Iceland it's sheer lunacy. Each wasted mouthful is worth about a fiver.
We are nearing the annual #Arctic sea ice minimum extent, which is generally reached in September. Follow what is happening with sea ice daily via our Charctic interactive sea ice graph, which you can also use to compare ice extent with past years.…

I'm not too familiar with packing for summer trips, but Iceland offers a very different summer to most destinations! Gear organised and made ready at @VanguardStorage back in London. #ad
Some Icelandic water falling for you.
Has this guy ever been on YouTube? It's full of hour-long, serious chats and debates. Some three hours long. And they have millions of views. The reason TV formats are increasingly vacuous is because commissioners are merely reactive, having long since vacated the driver's seat.…
The first glimpse of blue wonderment for a week. #iceland
Once the marketing trend people are done with craft gin, and craft vodka, they'll be giving craft rum a miss, no doubt. For it has been cancelled. Just wait until they come for your session IPA...then we really will have a battle.…
I think most sensible people can see this is a toxic mixture of fear, frustration and a dose of charity messianic delusion by Farthing, and governmental need for a figure to act as a lightning rod for public anger. #PenFarthing #KabulSmallAnimalRescue #AirLift #Kabul…
Great to catch up with Brando, Icelandic Search and Rescue's @Landsbjorg Project Manager. The film of my visit and interviews will be online, I hope, late next month.

In fact, I've been advised this quantity of rain is likely to put out the Icelandic #volcano. #Fagradalsfjall #Geldingadalir
The Icelandic adage... 'If you don't like the weather, just wait a few minutes' ...only works in one direction, when calm, clear skies are with us and are surely soon dashed. Torrential rain looks set to remain for the foreseeable!
Have there been any serious psychological studies done into conspiracy theorists? It would be interesting to know if most are as they appear: using a method to sooth inadequacy and insecurity by wanting to feel 'in the know' or a bit cleverer than those doing well in life.
It's the difference between a politician that began climbing the greasy pole at university, and one who went out into the world and did something first - and truly understands a little of something. But someone will dig out an unwoke historical vote of his, and he's sunk again.…
It's important not to eat too aggressively. Yes, that's half the knife, which exploded into two as well.
@laehStreboR In reality, to contribute to an economy where it's profitable to not emit excess gases like CO2, methane and so on. Smaller gestures of course have virtue, but at scale it's down to the future profitability of 'greenness'.

A few years ago I made an August crossing of the ice sheet - as usually that meant most of the summer melt had refrozen. Not so today.…

If I weren't in a pub, I'd have caught that egregious double-use of 'proper'.
It's sad to see how many pubs, on proper reopening, have expunged all their proper local and craft beers. The small breweries have suffered too. We're happy to pay a quid or two extra for them. Pubs, please restart sourcing from small brewers.
Never too late to get some work done.
A tragedy that marked a change in how the competitive exploratory cohort views expedition labelling, categories and purity.…
Are there any @Ofcom rules about TV presenters giving totally disproportionate book promotion airtime to their colleagues?…

Highlights an unhappy truth few will admit is likely the case. Of the 300,000 Afghan troops, trained at vast cost, they will be divided into those instantly defecting to the Taliban (or who were always Taliban), and those who'll now be slaughtered. The % split is up for debate.…
Good to know we'll be able to receive regular updates from the new Taliban government on Twitter, but to get updates from Donald Trump you'll have to go elsewhere…

The need for evidence, or even an explanation, is so last century.…
Many decent people were hoping for an unremarkable, steadying, and perhaps even a dull #Biden presidency. #KabulHasFallen #kabulairport
.@POTUS may have inherited the #Afghanistan policy from #DonaldTrump - but the chaos unfolding now, the miscalculation, the intelligence failures, the ignoring of repeated warnings is on the present incumbent of the White House

As the Taliban reach the outskirts of Kabul there is growing concern in Whitehall about our ability to mount a rescue operation of our nationals and their Afghan assistants. The Americans are deploying much more military assistance than us. But they’re just as worried.

Well - there's the solution. I don't know why people didn't think of this before. #Afghanistan #Kabul…
You're told to 'sit down' or 'stay in your lane' during a discussion, based on an identity group you're apparently in? No. There's a reason we don't have court trials where witnesses and the jury are all friends of the victim. But, avoid your contribution proving them right...

Also. There will be the predictable gun ownership outcry. Requirements include a) reasonable need & b) no reason why a chief officer deems it unwise. Davison's broadcasts surely show these weren't satisfied. This is a law application issue, not a law issue. #PlymouthShooting
This sort of carnage is the result of frustration building into overwhelming derangement. There's much to question in @jordanbpeterson's teaching, but I think his original framework for purpose could have halted Davison's spiral into oblivion. #Plymouth…
[1/4] Jakob Olsen had in many ways a unique role on the 5th Thule Expedition. He was West Greenlandic, where the other Greenlandic expedition members where Inughuit from Thule. He was a catechist and preached among the Canadian Inuit during the expedition.
