MattStafford: I'm not going to lie, I'm going to be kind of bummed if I die without seeing Yellowstone going off.  It's like some kind of Chekov's gun thing for me.


If I was you, I'd be more worried about dieing without finishing your economics degree.

Captain Steroid: Nefarious: Well on the USGS website the largest previous earthquake in the Yellowstone area was 3.5 so it was pretty big.  Now does it actually mean anything?

It means we need to stock up on K-Rations, ammo, and make our peace with God!


Look on the bright side.  If it goes, global warming won't be an issue.

MechaPyx: Nefarious: God-is-a-Taco: Western US has been quite active lately. There was an article on Fark a week or so ago after the first quake in San Fransisco that said it might be an ill omen. I don't know seismology, but since that article there's been an earthquake in LA and now this one.
Of course a couple earthquakes here as well, but that's fracking.

Maybe some unknown agency has an earthquake machine.

Mole people. They're secretly gathering their forces as we speak.


Thanks, Molebama!

Saturn5: The best part about the Yellowstone caldera blowing is you don't need to worry about it.  If it goes - you're toast.  Period. There is no prepping or amount of duct tape and plastic wrap that will help you.


You say that, but I have a lot of duct tape.

It probably means big bucks for yoga instructors. People will want to become flexible enough to be able to bend over and kiss their asses goodbye.

DamnYankees: There's really no point in panicking. If the Yellowstone Caldera ever goes off, everyone in the United States will die and the rest of the world will be left in a "The Road"-esque scenario. There's really nothing you can do save yourself from it, no point in worrying about it.


Yeah, not so much.  The ash plume will barely reach western Minnesota/Iowa.  Things might be a bit dodgy for the folks in Fargo, but the rest of the US should be OK.  Or at least not dead within a few days of the event.

As for Fimbulwinter, I've got my axe and my knife at the ready!
