At the time my wife took this picture, I did not yet realize that we were walking around on an active volcano when we recently visited Yellowstone National Park. The outgassing behind me, which I had just walked through, should have clued me in, since it had a strong smell of hydrogen sulfide mixed with hydrochloric and sulfuric acids. At a gift shop, I found a book by Greg Briening called Super Volcano: The Ticking Time Bomb Beneath Yellowstone National Park. It explains the science of Yellowstone, and makes a strong case that the volcano that created Yellowstone will blow up again, possibly soon, with cataclysmic consequences worldwide.

If you’re also a Wikipedean, and want some of these userboxen for yourself, feel free to copy them from my userpage. To help you find it: my username on Wikipedea is RobertAustin at the time of this posting, but should change to RobertLovesPi in just a few days.
And, yes, there are even more….
Collecting userboxen on Wikipedia is fun, but almost no one (except other Wikipedians) ever sees such collections. Since you can learn a lot about a given Wikipedian by their collection of userboxen, my blog seems like a good place to re-post my collection. It’s being done in pieces, simply to maintain legibility.
I’ve been editing Wikipedia under my own (legal) name for years, although I just submitted a request to have my Wikipedia-name changed to match the name of this blog. Every Wikipedia user has a user page, and can put these userboxen on it. Here’s the first part of my collection.
