So, whats your survival plan then?

Courtesy of the Daily.... (wait for it)....... STAR.. we now have the news that yellowstone national park (a 55mile wide volcano) is almost certainly going to erupt within the next 10 years wiping out all life on the planet (and there I was thinking David Cameron was our biggest problem!)

So with the exceedingly good news that politicians everywhere will finally be crawling back under their rocks in little underground bunkers and hiding for many years finally leaving us all alone, what steps will you be taking to ensure you outsmart millions of years of volcanic lava thats been waiting to wipe us out? (assuming of course you survive the sound / blast waves!)
This should be interesting!
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

I'll do what every reasonable English man would do.
Get the BBQ out, have a few beers, and laugh at the panicking Americans.  Grin

Was it the STAR that had a photograph of a Double Decker Bus on the Moon years ago.

I'd give a full response, but I'm busy digging an extension tunnel from my cellar.

Nobody reads the Sport, they just look at the "pretty" picture on page 3.

It was less than 6 years ago when we were doomed because the Large Hadron Collider was about to open up a black hole and swallow us all up.
I remember a girl at work became hysterical after reading about it.

Remember at Christmas 1999 when the world and its wife were harping on about the Y2K Bug? Nothing happened, IMO it was all a ruse cleverrly devised by the likes of PC World to convince everybody to buy a new PC for the Millennium., and to some extent it worked as I recall.

Re: So, whats your survival plan then?

There was a documentary style programme on a few years ago about what would happen if a super volcano went KABOOM!  Namely the one in Yellowstone Park.  Widespread destruction in the US, a bit of a chilly nuclear style winter over here till the dust settles and everything gets back to how it was.  We are actually due an eruption, but odds are it won't be in our lifetimes.
