What will the apocalyptic non-event for the next decade be?

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

In the 80s we were all going to die in an ice age.  In the 90s we were all going to die from acid rain.  In the 00s we are all going to die from global warming.  So what will the apocalyptic non-event for the 10s be?

    My choice is “English nationalism continues to rise, eventually finishing the Union.” That will be the end of the world as the Scots know it! 🙂

    I wondered who put that. Shame the poll widget thingy doesn’t show the “other” answers publically.

    Yellowstone national park

    Explosive eruptions are best compared by recalculating the volume of erupted volcanic ash and pumice in terms of the original volume of molten rock (magma) released (shown in this diagram by orange spheres). On this basis, the 585 cubic miles (mi3) of magma that was erupted from Yellowstone 2.1 million years ago (Ma) was nearly 6,000 times greater than the volume released in the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens, Washington, which killed 57 people and caused damage exceeding $1 billion.
    Even the 1815 Tambora, Indonesia, eruption—the largest on Earth in the past two centuries—was more than five times smaller than the smallest of Yellowstone’s three great prehistoric eruptions.


    Oh i’m sorry I didnt realse that this was the comedian section. Er,…I think Boy George will be caught standing in the middle of Hampstead high street at midnight wearing nothing but his hat! Well, you know he likes man holes!
