Been a while since I've riled up the losers forum so lets bump this thread to update you all on how amazing this spin off is doing.....not.
So in the last 3 months 'Sam' has managed to attract an extra 30 odd users to the site, unfortunately the majority of which seem to be bots as you can see in exhibit "A" (he instantly banned this user, presumably for posting spam)



Exhibit A


What's even more impressive is that the bot signed up no less than 7 days ago (that's a week) so it's taking this site 7 whole days to sign up only bot accounts (impressive).

Now lets take a look at the latest Alexa rankings for this site:



I'm going to bed, goodnight.

You can book online at Aena.es or using the Aena app. Cheaper than paying in the machine. A week is about 48€.

Not sure what the daily rate is but can’t be that much, the hourly rate is peanuts. Think I was about 30 cents last time I was in for an hour or so picking up arrivals

"SEISMIC-VOLCANIC SWELLS IN LA CALDERA, IN THE AREA OF THE MAGNETIC CHAMBER FONOLÍTICA - TEPHRÍTICA AND MORE MOVEMENTS IN THE SURROUNDINGS, CANARY ISLANDS, SPAIN.- The theme today is of the White Mountain eruption and the reason is the seismic swarms- volcanic of these days in the area.

Yesterday we had a remarkable swarm that starts at approximately 6:07 p.m. with more than a dozen signals from which 2 initial earthquakes have been located in the Ucanca caldera of magnitude 0.9 at depths of 13.2 and 12.9 km depth, right on the area in which the phonolitic-tephritic chamber is situated to the SW of Pico Viejo, indicating a small pressurization in it, possibly related to a small intrusion of fresh magma from its base. Then we had more activity in the following three hours, highlighting three more earthquakes in the area, one to the north and one to the south in the contours of this magmatic zone. Then we had some more in the middle volcano area and around Tenerife, one of them by the way in the swarm hour.

MONTAÑA BLANCA: For all those who do not know Tenerife, they should know that this volcano is the third largest in the planet, it is very large, a colossus and on its slopes there are not only "small and calm" eruptions with small cones and flows, There are of all types, even large and explosive as is the case of the White Mountain eruption. This eruption occurred through a conduit located east of the Teide peak. Their flows fill the eastern sector of the Teide canyons through which the Caldera road passes and they give landscapes of pumice stone (also called Tephra) and ashes that are spectacular like those of the Minas de San José area, where the accumulation of ash and pumice stone (Tephra), besides being a great place to try space probes for Mars,

Montaña Blanca is not a monogenic building or formed by a single eruption, but is actually part of a polygenic building, that is to say a volcanic building formed by several eruptions, some authors (Carracedo 2008) speak of an incipient stratovolcano in which They have distinguished up to 8 phases or eruptions. It is dated by Navarro (1980) to 2470 years and by Abblay et al. (1995) in about 2000 years, this would allow us to place it between the birth of Christ and 500 years before.

Two main features stand out from the Montaña Blanca group, one is Rajada Mountain with striking features in its waves hanging in waves, in the dangerous cuts to walk on it, in the needles of material that stick out with their friction grooves, all this indicates the material philolithic of which it is formed: the other striking phenomenon is the mantle of pumice that covers a large part of the group and the surroundings of the area that indicates an eruption probably with a subplinian phase with a column, according to Abblay, of 10-15 km of height, but it does not detract from the pumice mantle that we found from almost the path that leads to the Fort from El Portillo to the slopes of Pico Teide with thicknesses of up to 1 meter in the area of ​​the Orotava Valley. This phase would last only between 7 and 11 hours. Finally,
around the eastern zone of the fracture.

Seeing these details we can imagine the fear in the body of the Guanches who lived then in Tenerife, so we can understand that they believed that Guayota, his mythological devil, lived under Echeide. Teide, or that this was one of the entry doors to his hell.

M Carmen solana in the article that accompanies this post states that "The prevention of a phenomenon similar to that of 2,000 years ago would basically consist in the preventive evacuation of almost the entire island, especially the populations to which the column of pumice and ash and those located on the slopes surrounding the eruptive center ".

In this same article they highlight something reassuring, that these events are not so common: "Although the last eruption of this type in Tenerife occurred recently, only two explosive eruptions have occurred in the last 35,000 years, so it does not seem plausible that another eruption of this kind will occur in the near future. " (Let's hope it is that way and be it small and normal).

As if this were not enough, in Tenerife we ​​have also had a very large eruption too, a long time ago, (several tens of thousands of years). These tremendous eruptions could lead to the generation of important slope landslides, boilers and other very important volcanic manifestations, but they are more rare and isolated, in fact it is believed that there have only been 4-5 events of these geologically speaking, of which I will speak surely in future posts.

I conclude by saying that this activity of the volcanic system begins to be more than usual and what is expected. If this path continues, it could indicate the beginning of a serious medium-term reactivation of the volcanic system, which would be accompanied by a seismic crisis felt throughout the island for months. That is why I bring a couple of resources under the arm on the emergency plans, for those who want to know or read them, to know their islands and what the authorities put in these plans before they happen, because as I would say Lucy Jones, being prepared is always important.
