Yellowstone Supervolcano 2.5 times Larger Than Previous Estimates: A new study shows the supervolcano beneath Yellowstone National Park is actually about 2.5 times larger than previous estimates, suggesting that an eruption could very well doom all of humanity. Scientists theorize it would be nearly impossible for most life forms to survive such a cataclysmic event, with the possible exception of cockroaches or perhaps a few of the Kardashians.
Fossils Cast Doubt on Humanity Originating in Africa: Fossils from Greece and Bulgaria of an ape-like creature that lived 7.2 million years ago may fundamentally alter the understanding of human origins, casting doubt on the view that the evolutionary lineage that led to people arose in Africa. So their now claiming humanity originated in Bulgaria and not Africa? Well, I guess it could have been worse, it could have been Cleveland.

Which is why I’ve always carried a Tyrannosaurus rider with my car insurance policy.
