Yabut, ain't nowhere safe from rocks from sky. No

Umm You're like 10,000,000 times more likely to be hit by a bus crossing the street tomorrow than any of this. Perspective people.

You miss the point that these things will almost certainly happen eventually.

Yes but worrying about something that might happen at some point in the next 10,000 years is a bit silly when put into the perspective.

Yabut, I never suggested anyone should worry about it. Just be aware of it.

One reason we should know about all of these things is to have a realistic understanding of the universe in which we dwell.

It's dangerous and unpredictable, it's not fluffy bunnies and sparkly unicorns.

It was more meant for Logisch and cheap and any other high anxiety people.

RE: Yellowstone
Meh... Not to long along a paper came out that said historically every time Yellowstone has had a super eruption the magma was high in some trace element that it currently doesn't have much of. Based on that they predicted there wouldn't be another big eruption for a million years.

Of course we know about as much about predicting volcano eruptions as we do the origins of the universe. The thing could go off next year.

And for all of them, I give you Dr. Sidney Freedman.

Pffft. Maybe I want fluffy unicorns and sparkly bunnies.

I can be just as dangerous & unpredictable. Drinking Beverage fear me

@ the OP. If Yellowstone ever erupted, the life of North American's would be changed forever. There's nothing we can do, and it could happen anytime.
