Spad31: XKCD Snopes


I really wish Snopes would do an entry on that XKCD comic. That would be hilarious.

Like they would admit "True."
 
2014-04-04 05:04:59 PM  
I didn't see them deny the volcano would erupt within the next week or so. They just said they don't see any evidence that it will. What are they hiding? I recommend panic.

A Marine was walking by Old Faithful one day when he saw a hippie talking about how Yellowstone needed to be preserved.  The fierce warrior walked over to the tiny, weak liberal and asked why that was even important.  The nebbish man, shirking from the might of the Marine's mpressive physique, said that it needed to be saved for future generations.

Our hero knew that this was a bunch of horseplop.  He said "What if I told you that Yellowstone could blow at any minute so there's no need to?"

The craven lib licked his chops at the thought of displaying his fancy, East coast college education.  He said, "Oh yeah, well when's it going to blow?  I'm going to close my eyes and wait for 'any minute'."

Like a flash of God's lightning, the training he had used in the Core kicked in and he smashed the sniveling twerp right in the face with a vicious roundhouse kick.  The weakling flew into a hot spring hotter than the lake of fire of which his people will go if they don't accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and savior which is why they killed him.

All of the Americans cheered and threw of the shackles of conservation.  They carved their names in all of the geysers and roasted marshmallows around a tire fire in the parking lot.

Current theory is the "hot spot" is subsiding, or cooling off, due to a disconnect between it and the mantle  Translation: The magma has been cut off from it's heat source and is slowly cooling and solidifying.  It's still a substantial pocket of magma, and it is still there, but the chances of an eruption are diminishing.  Basically if it was going to asplode, it would have already done so some time over the past many thousands of years since it became overdue to erupt.  Now if the lake boils away, then its time to head for Australia.  Me?  I plan on building my own rocket and visiting the ISS.

FTFA:
"Our research of the pattern of such volcanism in two older, 'complete' caldera clusters in the wake of Yellowstone allows a prognosis that Yellowstone is on a dying cycle, rather than on a ramping up cycle," he says.

Yellowstone will begin a series of small eruptions on Sunday, August 21st, 2016 at 10:04 am. Over the next 8 days, the eruptions will increase in frequency, location, and size until they culminate in a single massive collapse and eruption of the caldera on Monday, August 29th, at 12:48 am.

Perhaps..., but the hotspot just might be moving on to eventually form a new caldera to the northeast, if it stays on track.
