Which natural disaster will you see in your lifetime?

Giant asteroid collision with earth
Super volcano eruption (Yellowstone)
Intentional use of nuclear weapons
Deadly pandemic disease (8bm.com readers choice)
Yellowstone will erupt in my lifetime. I can feel it in my bones. I have more faith in a volcano that is already 40,000 years overdue for an eruption to make good during my lifetime than I do another super flu getting a hit and making its way up the charts.
The Asteroid is coming, don’t fool yourself, but between the chances of it missing us and the world pulling together to blow it out of the sky. I am confident that this will happen shortly after I croak.
The intentional use of nuclear weapons is the one that I believe has the least possibility of happening, despite what Nostradamus says, because since we obliterated Hiroshima and Nagasaki the world has gotten smaller and even more dependent on one another for our economies to function. And as the world continues to get smaller and more interdependent on one another to prosper, having an entire chunk of the world uninhabitable and glowing at night isn’t good business. Then when you add in the inevitability of that nuclear crap making its way all over the world in one way or another it’s a lose-lose situation.
Now selecting the deadly pandemic disease is also very likely, but we have been doing such a good job isolating and quarantining people lately that catch anything that concerns us, I am also confident that if anything breaks out, especially if it breaks out in China or any place like that they will probably kill them off and bury them in mass graves for the betterment of society at large before they let something like a disease shut down their sweatshops.
