    Yellowstone Has Bulged as Magma Pocket Swells..Some places saw the ground rise by ten inches, experts report.

    snip
    The simmering volcano has produced major eruptions容ach a thousand times more powerful than Mount St. Helens's 1980 eruption葉hree times in the past 2.1 million years. Yellowstone's caldera, which covers a 25- by 37-mile (40- by 60-kilometer) swath of Wyoming, is an ancient crater formed after the last big blast, some 640,000 years ago.
    snip
    Since then, about 30 smaller eruptions擁ncluding one as recent as 70,000 years ago揺ave filled the caldera with lava and ash, producing the relatively flat landscape we see today.

    But beginning in 2004, scientists saw the ground above the caldera rise upward at rates as high as 2.8 inches (7 centimeters) a year.
    snip
    The rate slowed between 2007 and 2010 to a centimeter a year or less. Still, since the start of the swelling, ground levels over the volcano have been raised by as much as 10 inches (25 centimeters) in places."It's an extraordinary uplift, because it covers such a large area and the rates are so high," said the University of Utah's Bob Smith, a longtime expert in Yellowstone's volcanism.

    Has to be just Bush; isn't Cheney getting a heart installed or something?

    Could be gravitational waves given off during the Betelgeuse Supernova ?

    It started in 2004, it has to be a conspiracy between both of them, it is just too much of a coincidence!

    Why would Cheney want a heart? Wouldn't that interfere with his Pure Evil?

    Just you wait, the caldera will blow causing the expected diversion and then we will open the camps!
