The Trump Presidency...

Given that I now know your IP address where do I turn you in to collect my $million?
Given that I use a VPN to hide my IP, given that I own more weapons and ammo than @LJONESY, given (that In my own mind) I am a very hard basturd, and given that I can run weally, weally fast, do you still want to take me up on that?:)

1) ps: Now, If you knew my wifes IP address she would gladly grass up my whereabouts in a second, that's a different story.

2) ps; Back off S.W.A.T - the claim that I own guns and ammo is completely false and totally made up.

Quality not quantity sir and your mags are pinned to ten rounds until you break your own laws.........
 
But hey at least I will have more than 25 mins to kiss it goodbye!
You hope!
Remember the bang and mess Mount St Helen made when it blew? Multiply that by around 2500 and you have the size of the bang and mess Yellowstone will make. Anyone within a 100 mile radius of Yellowstone will be dead within seconds, that along with the earthquakes will wipe out Wyoming, Montana, North and South Dakota, Utah, Colorado, and most of Nebraska, those States will be gone in less than an hour.

With the initial eruption, Yellowstone is going to chuck out over 240 cubic miles of rock, dust and volcanic ash. I reckon your figure of more than 25 minutes is being a fair bit optimistic.

Not having a dig at you mate, just saying how things will unfold when it does blow.

I was born in 83..... My figure was just based on the fact that the cloud of ash will not be traveling quite as fast as in incoming MIRV. Either way, we would prob be the lucky ones, the rest of the world will just die slow.

Jonesy, Wyoming is going to be obliterated in a matter of minutes, certainly less than twenty five minutes. It won't just be a cloud of ash mate, there will be super earthquakes and all sorts of other not nice things to deal with.

With Montana, North and South Dakota, Utah, Colorado and most of Nebraska gone in less than an hour, how long do you reckon Wyoming is going to last?
 
Also keep in mind that the ash from the eruption is going to be super heated, granted it cools as it travels but the heated stuff at ground zero is going to be pushing the cooler stuff outwards at very fast rate of knots. It won't just be one big bang either, If the St Helen eruption was anything to go by there are going to be lots of after bangs as well.

Maybe 25-30 mins until my part get's nailed. Honestly have not tired to figure out the life expectancy if this event were to occur. It falls under the Russian Nuke strike scenario and the answer is "Ye Be Fucked".
 
Dude when Yellowstone blows, it's going to be feck knows how many times larger than the largest nuclear weapon ever tested.

Actually we might survive the onslaught...

This Is What Would Happen To The World If The Yellowstone Supervolcano Erupted Today

Granted we would have about a foot or more of ash on the ground, but we might not die outright. Granted we would be heading East and preparing for what would essentially be a nuclear winter for decades to come.
 
Manafort's pleaded guilty to the various charges against him and agreed to co-operate with the Mueller investigations

Manafort pleads guilty in Mueller probe, will cooperate with prosecutors

Shouldn't be long until the orange one is slagging him off on Twitter after praising his loyalty last week.
No kidding, I won't be taking any bets on whether the twitter twat uses the words 'loser, weak, discredited, or 'witch hunt' in any of his twatty tweets about Manafort?

An interesting point of note in the article about the ground rising within the area was something I have viewed at first hand. In September 1997 I was hunting just outside Cooke City, one of the gateways to Yellowstone in an area known as Daisy Pass. We had trailed in on horseback to an area around Lake Abundance.

On scouting around the lake looking for sign of elk, as we arrived at approximately the north eastern end of the lake it was noticeable that the water had receded away from the shore by several hundred yards, leaving just hardened, cracked silt. Not thinking much about this we continued through the morning to scout further around the shore until arriving at roughly the opposite end from the recession. Here, the wooded area of aspens and pines had flooded to about four feet deep, over a very large area, and going back into the timber as far as we could see. This was a cause of conversation for the rest of the week.

Fast forward to November 2000, and I flew out again to hunt moose, again in the same valley. We trailed in a few miles to go check out the lake as we were keen to look at the ‘tilting’ phenomenon that we’d seen three years before. We were rather surprised to find that the water had returned to within thirty yards or so of the original shoreline, and the remaining dry silt was a thin strip. The opposite end told the same story, and the trees were back on dry land, and were easily traversable on foot being almost completely dry.

I don’t now the amount of water that had moved back and forth over that time, probably several million gallons at least, but it was something that has stuck with me ever since, the power of nature at work and so often unnoticed by many.
 
Granted we would be heading East
You and how many millions of others? I reckon the majority of highways and bye ways are going to be a mite congested. Sorry to say it mate but you're beginning to sound a lot like this fellow.

Only slightly.....got a first hand glimpse of that last year with that damn eclipse. Not quite a natural disaster but an eye opening experience none the less.


Could we at least keep the clips to something I might have seen?

The cynic in me says you're not going to get any warning. Oh sure the signs will be noticed by agencies such as the USGS who will report it to the government. I reckon the government will keep it quite because of the mass panic that would ensue if they did broadcast it.

Even if they did broadcast it how far do you think you'll get? Again think back to St Helen when a lot of commercial domestic flights from the West were grounded, it even affected flights from Europe. Also because of traffic congestion you aren't going to get very far very fast.

With up to 5 feet of ash coming down that is going to choke everything mechanical again you aren't going to get very far.

If it happens it happens, lets hope it doesn't happen anytime soon.

It should not happen, but if given a few hours to regroup and get a few things squared away. Eastern Nebraska would be feasible. I agree the government would wait until the bitter end but I would plan on 72 hours give or take before it would go off and the warning is out.

Granted for the non apoc type emergencies my plan is to bug in and ride it out.
