The past week or so has been surreal. The whole planet is shaking like crazy from pole to pole.
The Toba eruption 80,000 years ago is soundly implicated as the last truly big genetic bottleneck, with the human population reduced to only a few thousand worldwide. There have been black mats laid down at 11,500 year intervals ever since. Each one of these black mat events was apocalyptic but the Toba eruption was so grim it may have left the Earth pitch black and without proper sunlight for more than twenty years.
PACK YOUR RICE.
