Wow. I can't imagine what a near-constant rumbling beneath you would feel like.

Then you can imagine how I feel after eating hard boiled eggs on rye crisp.

Yes they are but there has been much more activity than usual.
$1:
"I have experienced earthquakes before but never so many in a row," Reykjavik resident Auður Alfa Ólafsdóttir told CNN. "It is very unusual to feel the Earth shake 24 hours a day for a whole week. It makes you feel very small and powerless against nature."

$1:
Iceland sits on a tectonic plate boundary that continually splits apart, pushing North America and Eurasia away from each other along the line of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Most seismic activity here is only picked up by sensitive scientific equipment. Occasional stronger tremors are an inevitable part of living in an active seismic region.

Only this time, there seems to be no end to the rumble under the ground.

New Zealand is getting a lot of earthquakes too. Most of them are offshore but they did get a tsunami warning a couple of days ago.
