    2-3 years ago i watched some documentary about Yellowstone and it's volcano, and it said it's a potential threat not only to US and Canada but also to the Europe, that those poisonous gas and ashes will be impossible to escape etc It also said that it erupted every xxx years and that it's supposed to erupt again sometimes in 2010s. And at the time, my biology teacher lived in Canada (her husband lived there, so did she, but every new school year she would come back and, well, teach, work), and once i told her all about the that volcano and stuff and she was freaked out, she really considered not to go back to Canada, lol.

    Not as bad as I thought though just like anything it's not totally inconceivable but it's unlikely to occur.

    Those guys in the US are in greater danger than they can think of. You know, Yellowstone and stuff.
    I forgot about Yellowstone ! O.o maybe it won't happen in my lifetime

    Going by what I just read. You would be right. On top of that, it would appear it will never be a 'supervalcano' again like it was.

    But again if you look at what happend in Japan, in Fukushima, they never thought that waves could reach more than 7m, in the end in some areas, waves were as high as 39m, that's not a small miscalculation. Why am i saying this? We know s*** about nature. They thought when the large tsunamis happen, it's only one quake that initiates them, it turned out that there were two in Fukushima case. The first was the large one and it made 5m high wave, the second one was much smaller but it increased the hight and the power of the tsunami enormously.

    My point is, altough we do know so many stuff there's much more we actually don't know. So, God knows when and what will happen. Who could ever predict Haiti? You get my poing :d

    It was still big nevertheless . If that were to erupt I bet I would see ashes for days or weeks according to that link . O.o I can't imagine that

    The 39m is 'above sea level' and not the actual wave height.

    Less than an hour after the earthquake, the first of many tsunami waves hit Japan's coastline. The tsunami waves reached run-up heights (how far the wave surges inland above sea level) of up to 128 feet (39 meters) at Miyako city and traveled inland as far as 6 miles (10 km) in Sendai. The tsunami flooded an estimated area of approximately 217 square miles (561 square kilometers) in Japan.

    Here's the freaky bit and just goes to show how powerful this thing really was:

    Amazing facts
    Here are some of the amazing facts about the Japan earthquake and tsunami.

    The earthquake shifted Earth on its axis of rotation by redistributing mass, like putting a dent in a spinning top.
    The temblor also shortened the length of a day by about a microsecond.
    More than 5,000 aftershocks hit Japan in the year after the earthquake, the largest a magnitude 7.9.
    About 250 miles (400 km) of Japan's northern Honshu coastline dropped by 2 feet (0.6 meters), according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
    The jolt moved Japan's main island of Honshu eastward by 8 feet (2.4 meters).
    The Pacific Plate slid westward near the epicenter by 79 feet (24 m).
    In Antarctica, the seismic waves from the earthquake sped up the Whillans Ice Stream, jolting it by about 1.5 feet (0.5 meters).
    The tsunami broke icebergs off the Sulzberger Ice Shelf in Antarctica.
    As the tsunami crossed the Pacific Ocean, a 5-foot high (1.5 m) high wave killed more than 110,000 nesting seabirds at the Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge.
    In Norway, water in fjords pointing toward Japan sloshed back and forth as seismic waves from the earthquake raced through.
    The earthquake produced a low-frequency rumble called infrasound, which traveled into space and was detected by the Goce satellite.
    Buildings destroyed by the tsunami released thousands of tons of ozone-destroying chemicals and greenhouse gases into the air.

    In Orland you would be covered in a layer of ash/soot that is about 1 foot thick.

    The more I read about all the issues with WM10, I am quite happy with WP8.1.1 on my 640. I am going to sit tight till the issues are all sorted out.

    Good enough start to the day so far...I won this week's weekly office pool and my first round match-up on the fantasy football league playoffs.

    Next up is the #1 seed who's riding a 10 game winning streak.

    For me I think wm10 is pretty much solid for me and at times beats 8.1.1. Album art works and shows . Bluetooth works ( as in is always paired with my band ) battery is about the same. I also don't get anymore random reboots compared to 8.1.1 ( I get none on 10) :)
