I would have to say that the worst part is that up until now, a lot of us had no idea that it could do that much damage.  The magnitude of the destruction was astonishing.  It makes me wonder what other possible major disasters we are unaware of.

Probably a lot. In my opinion, I think that there are a lot of secrets floating around in everyone's government that they don't want to announce because it could cause a panic.

We really don't need to worry too much about this, it's just the calamity of the moment. Remember when the big deal was the giant eartquake that would drop the West Coast of the US in the Pacific?

But really, there haven't been enough instances of eruptions at the Yellowstone caldera for scientists to make a very accurate prediction. When they say "average 600,000 years" that has an EXTREMELY wide margin of error.

And Yellowstone is so active, it's hard to tell what changes in its landscape is just normal inner workings or cause for alarm. We've not really had the means to study it for very long.

I thought of something to defeat this b****** if it ever goes off; if its even possible. A cold fusion bomb, or several droped at the points of the explosive magma is shooting or soon will. Or even completely fill the place with those suckers, maybe it would freeze it all and in theory stop it from happening. Hmmm?

Another supervolcano? I had heard on the radio that there was one on the island of Sumatra, and that it could be active soonish. Then again it was from the radio, so I don't know how much truth there is to that.

I'm going to try not to worry about such things. I risk death everyday in a car or airplane. Dying from a natural disaster doesn't seem likely.

I'm not ready to go to Heaven, and there's still a lot I'd like to do. However if it happens, then it happens. Just have to think about what eternity is going to be like. Eternity makes suffering on earth look short. So I'll just suck it up, take it as it comes here in Missouri, and try to focus on what's going to happen to me after I die. Make no mistake, I plan to survive if I can.

One thing I do kind of want is for my mom and other family members to not be alive when/if it happens. I mean I can take anything, but I'd hate to see my loved one's suffer. sad.gif

That's not even remotly a good idea... That's on par with setting of nukes to fuse a faultline together to stop earthquakes.

I feel like I would sleep better if I didn't read about this super volcano, but knowledge is power. I guess I'll just be moving far away if Yellowstone starts smoking. thumbsup.gif

Where is Sumatra?

What other supervolcanoes do you guys know about?

I could only imagine the damage that Yellostone would do. I just watched a little movie (National Geographic, I think) that told you about volcanoes and the damage they could do. The videos they showed, even of the small volcanoes, were terrible. There are so many things attached to volcanoes that do a lot of damage.

Pryoclastic flows along with lava are other things to worry about. So is rain and ash mixing. hmm.gif All I know is that if Yellowstone goes, so will quite a few people in the US.

However, looking at it without all of the devastation involved, they are beautiful and something that we need to respect.

Many people live near and in peace with active volcanoes.

Some volcanoes are actually a blessing in some places for farmers, considering that the dirt near a volcano is very rich in nutrients.

Hey, I think that it was in the video...can't exactly remember the name, but it talked of a volcano that erupted and changed the weather for two years. They mentioned that it was snowing in June in England. Crazy, isn't it?
