Mt Doom heats up Can't Post

Ruapehu, one of the two North Island mountains that stood in for Mt Doom in LOTR, is becoming more likely to erupt.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

D'you think it's getting ready to let off some Gandalf-style fireworks to celebrate the opening of 'The Hobbit'?

Scary stuff! [In reply to] Can't Post

Let's hope it doesn't disrupt the premiere! Laugh

On another note, and I know there are TORnFolk out there who are more clued up on the English language than I am, but that title doesn't make sense to me?

I know the "more likely" comes from the quote: "more likely over the next weeks to months'' - and in that context it makes sense. But wouldn't have read better as "Ruapehu likely to erupt"?

I read the title as meaning 'more likely than usual'.
If the title said 'likely to erupt' I would think that an eruption was imminent.

I knew what they were getting at [In reply to] Can't Post

It just doesn't sit right with me. It just needs a "than" in the sentence, and then I wouldn't be moaning. Wink

An eruption of special magnificence? [In reply to] Can't Post

Hopefully New Zealanders won't take it as the king under the mountain returning...that's not gold flowing from Ruapehu Smile

"'Ai! ai!' wailed Legolas. 'A Balrog! A Balrog is come!'
Gimli stared with wide eyes. 'Durin's Bane!' he cried, and letting his axe fall he covered his face.
'A Balrog,' muttered Gandalf. 'Now I understand. What an evil fortune! And I am already weary.''
