How does one prepare for such a thing? I have a flame retardant pic - a - nic basket that I got from a friendly bear and his little side kick.

I moved to the East Coast, so all I will get is ashes and no more natural gas.

I have a couple samples of the ash from the last major eruption of Yellowstone 640,000 years ago. It's called the Lava Creek B Ash. It is one of the things useful for dating such things as the downcutting rate of the Colorado River.

There are a few traces if it here and there. My samples are from near Montrose, CO and near Moab.

I keep a 2 year supply of booze and wine. (Conservative estimate).

My plan is to try to drink it all at one sitting. I simply don't have the money to charter an interstellar space ship.

Is that about a stolen Boeing 777 that’s going to crash itself and a nuke into Old Faithful?

As long as Justin Bieber's on board or on the ground nearby. I'm OK with that.

Heck along with a long list of right wingnut pundits like Ann Coulter and Rush (Big Fat Idiot) Limburger.

Damn! Figures, I just bought a new bicycle and what I should have been doing was buying all the marshmallows I can lay my hands on and corner the market.
