Katla is the bigger sister of Eyjafjallajökull (cntrl-c cntrl-v) and it has a reputation to keep up that when the little sister blows its top, it does follow suit.

Doom scenarios have been considered:
- taking the boat back
- finishing university by correspondence
- finding a job in the USA
- all MediaWiki bugs get squashed
