Supervolcano soon to erupt?

Friday, Apr, 4 2014

We’ve always heard how animals seem to know in advance when something bad is about to happen…but a number of bloggers are posting videos that show bison and other animals leaving Yellowstone National Park, prompting theories that the Yellowstone supervolcano could be erupting soon.
Two of the main bloggers behind the discussion stress that there’s no way to know when the supervolcano will go off but note that the 4.8 magnitude earthquake that hit last week seemed to set off a reaction from the animals, who are moving for a reason.

A “noted survivalist and search-and-rescue expert,” said on YouTube that nearly one quarter of the northern elk herd at Yellowstone National Park are missing.

Herds of bison running for their lives on the public roadways and they were not being chased or rounded up, the bison were running down the mountain slopes onto roadways running right past a filming crew.

The last time this supervolcano erupted was over 1.3 million years ago. If it happened again, thick ash would bury half of the United States, and volcanic gases shot into the atmosphere would drastically affect global climate. Fortunately, the Yellowstone volcanic system shows no signs that it is headed toward such an eruption in the near future. In fact, the probability of any such event occurring at Yellowstone within the next few thousand years is exceedingly low.

Residents in Ratcliffe, Texas, are convinced they’ve found the mythical chupacabra – alive. A man apparently caught the creature while it was sitting in a tree on their property eating corn on Sunday night. With its hairless back, large claws, countless teeth and ferocious growl, many say the animal fits the bill. While the residents are sure the creature is the elusive chupacabra, Texas Parks and Wildlife Biologists says that it’s just some form of a small canine,” They said the animal most likely has mange, which has caused it to lose its hair.

A chupacabra is described as a creature of myth that sucks the blood out of goats.

Beer Map

Researchers looked at a million tweets to find out which each region prefers and mapped it.
The map shows the Eastern half of the US prefer Bud Light while the Western half particularly near Colorado and surrounding states prefer Coors Light… and the Midwest prefers Miller Light.
But the entire state of Iowa… covered in Busch Light.

MLB Fans in the U.S.

Tuesday, Apr, 1 2014

Facebook used some of its user data to map MLB fandom across the country. Specifically, Facebook went to MLB team pages and mapped the likes on each page county by county.

The NY Yankees appear — based purely off data — to be not only America’s favorite team, but Louisiana’s favorite team, Virginia’s favorite team, Hawaii’s favorite team, Alaska’s favorite team, and New Mexico’s favorite team. .

A few more interesting results:

The Atlanta Braves own the South.

Alaska is basically a Yankees/Red Sox rivalry state.

Nebraska is the most divided state.

…And almost nobody is a Miami Marlins fan.

As for Iowa? The Chicago Cubs dominate the state. The northern counties favor the Minnesota Twins, and a few counties in the Southeast favor the Cardinals.
