  1. The Big One vs. Yellow Stone. We know where but we don't exactly know when, and people are still living on and around there.

  2. Huh, and here I thought the geyser's name was "Old Face Full" because of what happened the first time someone came up to it and looked into the hole to see what was in there.
    At about 12 minutes in he asks "but where is the volcano" and my immediate thought was "You're in it".
    Yeah, the hotspot, just like the one that forms the various Hawaiian Islands isn't moving, the plate over it is. It does make me wonder why there aren't any big hotspots like the one under Yellowstone anywhere else in the world, or if maybe, we just haven't noticed them yet.

  3. John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." God loves you, my friends!

  4. Personally, I'd watch the activities of the animals. When they run in the same direction away from Yellowstone, that's time to go! Forget technology, follow the earth's movements under the feet of the animals and flee.

  5. It's actually not. Go watch Nick Zentner. Stop freaking people out and also none of the video and picture depict what the caldera's actually did. It's much worse, but not going to happen in our lifetime.

  6. Right now God is debating of whether humanity even deserves to be here any longer and Yellowstone erupting would be a blessing to mankind. Rest in peace America.

  7. Wouldn't be it be awesome if this volcano erupted at the same time as Bill Gates decided to test his theories on the atmosphere? I would like to see the elites get their fair share of suffering, especially if they think they are gods

  8. Um, Washington and New York are just a tad bit more than 400 miles apart. Over five times more. And since we're talking about a continent-sized impact and the nearest Washington to Yellowstone is the state, I KNOW you weren't referring to the cities. Did you mean to say 4,000 miles?
