swine flu

Postby Yoda » Mon Apr 27, 2009 3:25 pm

Not sure if anyone is following but this is pretty big news right now. 149 people dead in Mexico including some very young and healthy people with strong immune systems.

San Diego is obviously a danger zone since it is so close to Mexico with people crossing the border with relative ease.

Looks like it's time for me to buy some bacon.
Sometimes it takes a crazy person to see the truth. If so, I'm a freaking lunatic.

You sure about that?

MSNBC.com wrote:"Super [volcanoes] are up to hundreds of times larger than [regular volcanoes]," said Stephen Self of Britain's Open University.

"An area the size of North America can be devastated, and pronounced deterioration of global climate would be expected for a few years following the eruption," Self said.
...
Geologists in the United States detailed a similar scenario in 2001, when they found evidence suggesting volcanic activity in Yellowstone National Park will eventually lead to a colossal eruption. Half the United States will be covered in ash up to 3 feet (1 meter) deep, according to a study published in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters.

Explosions of this magnitude "happen about every 600,000 years at Yellowstone," says Chuck Wicks of the U.S. Geological Survey, who has studied the possibilities in separate work. "And it's been about 620,000 years since the last super explosive eruption there."
