    Worrying stuff :(


    Evacuation Warning - Yellowstone National Park Area

    "I am advising all State officials around Yellowstone National Park for a potential State of Emergency. In the last week over 300 earthquakes have been observed by the USGS. We have a 3D view on the movement of magma rising underground. We have all of the pre warning signs of a major eruption from a super volcano. - I want everyone to leave Yellowstone National Park and for 200 miles around the volcano caldera."

    This is Non Official but the Geologist has a point

    Oh, that's bad news. My aunt lives very near there, I wonder if they've been evacuated.

    If that caldera blows we can all kiss goodbye to everything we know and love, and welcome another ice age. And that's global.

    Apparently it blows every 600,000 years. The last time was around 630,000 years ago. If it goes, most of us will be toast! :p

    Well that certainly is frightening. For comic relief here's something similar.

    I don't believe it. Nostradamus said the world would end in 2012. Of course, it's entirely plausible that it would take three years to finish us all off. Shall we get the Mythbusters on the case to explore the possibilities?

    Only Wall-e can save us now when that volcano blows. Or sucks as the case might be. :rolleyes:

    My dad is kind of crazy but has done lots of research on Yellowstone and how once it blows we are all screwed. Even though we live on the east coast we are still screwed and eventually the rest of the world is too. I always scoff at his crazy theories but he is convinced that is how its all going to end for this civilization. I hope to God he's wrong about this too.
