"At the end of every good party there is a bill that has to be paid."

- err, not if you pay upfront and have your party in a field, or move anything of value out of the squat ( sorry, house ) :p

"Iceland must now fall back on the more mundane energy, farming, tourism and fishing industries, which are its best hope of economic recovery."
Mundane it may be, but it is real and tangible industry, just like we used to have in UK, when we created real wealth for ourselves. What have we got to fall back on I wonder ?
A chilling thought indeed chrisch.
