Here's a little more information about the Yellowstone issue from the USGS.  This paper describes the efforts, to date, to image the deformation of the caldera.  It is inflating and has been for some time.  The earthquakes just add to the interest.


Caption - A new satellite-based technique known as Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) allows direct and precise measurement of the vertical changes in ground level. This InSAR image of the area around the Yellowstone Caldera (dotted line) shows vertical changes during the 4-year period 1996–2000. The ringed pattern centered northwest of Yellowstone Lake is a prominent area of dome-shaped uplift. Each complete cycle of colors in the color bands represents a little more than one inch (28.3 mm) of vertical change. Yellow triangles are continuous GPS stations; white dots are locations of earthquakes in the period 1996–2000.

The good news is that the recurrence interval (time between) of large, cataclysmic eruptions along the Yellowstone hotspot track appears to be, on average, greater than 1 million years and the last major eruption was about 630,000 years ago.  The bad news is...it's an average.  There could be eruptions shorter than the average return period.

This is nothing new.  They have seen these clusters of earthquakes before.  Bob Smith, the geophysicist from Utah quoted in the article, IS the expert on Yellowstone.

*edit* - in saying this is nothing new, I don't mean that this is not news, it is.  It is also pretty damn exciting from the perspective of active tectonics.  It's just that this is not necessarily the precursor to a major eruption, which would be bad....quite bad.

It's impossible to summarize this story well, but if I said it's about a North Cackalacky woman who moved to Wyoming and was crowned Miss Wyoming (World) then kidnapped a Mormon missionary in London, skipped bail, changed her name, and was last seen in Korea picking up the product of the world's first commercial dog cloning, a clone of her pit bull, Booger, well would that be enough?

McKinney tracked him down to Surrey, England.

That didn't work, so she and her accomplice tied him spread-eagled on the bed and she assaulted him three times.



So it's either the Bible, or I screw your brains out.
 

As a confirmed atheist, I can say without hesitation that I'd take the bible, thankyouverymuch.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting the link.
I wouldn't have believed it to be true, otherwise!  {#Roflol}


The beauty queen turned international fugitive resurfaced at a hotel in Atlanta disguised as a nun, then dropped the charade to pose topless for magazines before U.S. authorities arrested her and then freed her on bail.

She disappeared again only to appear in 1984 in Salt Lake City where she was arrested for stalking her former Mormon missionary victim.
