fusillade762: Animals know when something bad is about to happenYet they are terrible at avoiding being killed.Don't anthropomorphise animals. They hate that.
fluffy2097: If the yellowstone supervolcano goes off. Nobody on the entire planet will be safe./Climate change from ash, leading to famine, leading to disease, and a general breakdown of society as we know it.

HindiDiscoMonster: fluffy2097: If the yellowstone supervolcano goes off. Nobody on the entire planet will be safe./Climate change from ash, leading to famine, leading to disease, and a general breakdown of society as we know it.pretty much... it's not an extinction event, but pretty damn close... you wouldn't want to live in the world after that eruption.
unchellmatt: The number of "OMFG Yellowst0n3 valcanoes about 2 asplode!!!!!" predictions almost exceed the number of "Apple Computer is about to go under" predictions. Give it a farking rest.
Hoopy Frood: Their lead source is a blog? Yeah, that's air-tight.
nymersic: HindiDiscoMonster: /I think it was a mistake for us to leave the trees...//some think is was a mistake to leave the sea.It was a mistake to leave the spaceship that dropped us off here!Why do I always feel that if some cataclysmic event occurs, I'm going to be one of the survivors living in a The Stand-like post-apocalyptic America? Does everyone else feel like that, that they'd be part of that small fraction spared?

Bendal: I thought geologists were just saying the Yellowstone super-volcano was not only dormant, but dead, Jim. Now we've got so-called "survivalists" and bloggers warning of imminent disaster based on herd animals running around. Newsflash: herd animals sometimes run around for trivial reasons, including waving grass, odd noises, random movements and weather.
skinink: If that's true then how come no dogs warned us about 9/11?
big pig peaches: I'll let you in on a secret. Animals migrate in the spring.Shhhhh.. Don't tell anybody. Only me an a few of my biologist buddies know about this.
Bslim: Your ideas, they intrigue me. Newsletter etc..
nymersic: There was such an eruption 2.1 million years ago, 1.4 million years ago, 700k years ago, and the magma has been right up to the surface for as long as we've had a science of geology (hence all the hot springs and whatnot).So if anyone really wonders, this is as far from dormant as you can get. It will happen... "soon".
