BS Detection: Yellowstone Super Volcano

edwardspoonhands:

So I’ve gotten a bunch of asks and tweets asking me whether or not we should be worried about the impending explosion of the largest volcano on Earth (which I happen to live very nearby). No, you should not. 

This latest round of speculation was sparked by a YouTube video…yes, literally a single YouTube video, which shows some bison running down the road. 

Now, obviously the Yellowstone volcano is not about to erupt. It’s a massive thing…if it were about to erupt there would have been several hundred years of upwelling that we just haven’t seen. Seismic activity is intensely stable on a geologic scale. 

But I want to use this as an excuse to talk about BS detection…as I might do quite a bit in the future. Figuring out the difference between something you should legitimately be concerned about (global warming) and something you shouldn’t (super volcanos) is an vital life skill…and it doesn’t come easy. 

Some people will call BS detection “common sense” but I would never call it that since it seems, in fact, to be very rare. So let’s take a look and see what we can learn:

Huh, that last one was my 100th post. Hooray for powers of ten, I guess!

S’pose I should probably work on some original content one of these days.

Waterbears can go without food or water for more than a decade. They can survive temperatures from zero to above the boiling point of water, pressure six times stronger than the deepest ocean trench, radiation hundreds of times higher than the fatal dose for a human, and the vacuum of space.

These things are crazy and fascinating. They are properly called Tardigrades.

Just found my first ever attempt at photoshop: making a parody of the Nokia 6110 ad back in 2007. I’m pretty proud of my attempt to Fight the Power (after owning at least three Nokia phones in my lifetime…)
