Just think of all the people that will be found in an excavation one day like Pompeii. They'll be found in positions reading their cell phones.

We can hide under our desks. If that was good enough to protect us from a nuclear attack it would certainly handle a little lava.

This article goes along with something I noticed years ago on network news: "If you don't listen to us you are going to die". I pay no attention any more.

Exactly! Raid the liquor cabinet, roll a fatty, then bend over, etc. Maybe put on "Dark Side of the Moon"...

If a volcano is going to erupt and wipe out most of the planet and send us into a nuclear winter...I want to be standing right next to that volcano when it blows. These "doomsday preppers" are comical. They want to live in a tiny metal tube under ground and eat rice and drink their urine. No thanks...id rather be swallowed by molten lava.
