How many of you are aware that Yellowstone is really one giant volcano which explodes every 600,000 yrs or so. and it has been 640000 yrs since the last super eruption?
Something like this happening could be like an end of the world event.

I have heard that the volcano at Yellowstone is not likely to errupt, but if it did I think the human race could survive it. We have facilities that can protect people from nuclear bombs so I seriously doubt the human race would be over, but the planet would take a huge spin for the worse. I am personnally not going to worry about it because I have better things to do.:D

It's because we are using too much oil and ruining the environment. Can't you see the conspiracy?

hehe, facilities? ... Kinda foolish to think the human race has one up on the planet which completely sustains it. But you are right, if its going to happen, there's not much we can do about it except last until we die.

Yes, I am aware of that. Stuff happens and sometimes there is nothing you can do about it.
