    They are trying to calm us down and tell us it isn't serious... but if you have seen the movie "2012" you know that when the super-volcano blows in Yellowstone we are all fucked.

    "Yellowstone sits atop a volcano that created a vast crater. Its plateau hosts the world's most diverse and expansive continental hydrothermal systems, including the multicolored springs, mudpots and geysers for which the park is known.

    While the Steamboat eruptions are unusual, what would be far more worrying would be the water in the hydrothermal systems drying up, which could indicate that the super hot magma deep below was making its way to the surface."

    We will have at least a 100 year warning before the Big One, so don't worry about it.

    I hope it's soon. I've been waiting for this since I first heard about the "super volcano" in grade school. I was kinda hoping for a zombie apocalypse first, but this stupid geyser will have to do.

    It made a good movie, but I don't think I would like living so close to it. I could blow a little bit at a time and just screw the area up slower. The crust is thin in that area of the Earth. I won't be around for the grand bang, or the smash and grab time of this Earth.

    Toba Eruption Event ... 75,000 years ago a super volcano in Indonesia erupted and triggered a 10 year winter that reduced the global human population to less that 20,000.

    Not a movie
