    A lady in Japan was saved by her little lap dog in 2011, it sensed the earthquake. Sad Dantes Peak wasn't covered.

    Wish you did dante's peak starring pierce brosden(?) Sorry if misspelled the actors name there are a few parts I am unsure of, one acid lake, two pycrolastic flow and survival in mine shaft, three the dead squirrel, dead trees, four the groundwater sulfur scene and finally the super heated hot spring

    In the twister scene if they would have watched the movie and not just the short clip they would have known that there is two water spouts in that scene which actually happens more frequently than you would expect anyways this accounts for the opposing winds.

    i kinda wish they hadnt looked at the scale of the disasters and if that was realistic cause in most of the cases we kinda know its not the scale of say the earthquake in 2012 is mostly just for the flair and to make the movie more interesting so i do wish they had stuck to wether the things happening are realistic and what such a scale would look like or do

    The subtext on this is Gliek and the woman are throwing shade at the NOAA guy for working for an administration that denies climate change, and he knows he can't defend climate change too vocally or else he could lose his job, but he won't just lie and say it isn't real.

      @Pagani Zonda Yet here we are today, with fossils and transitional fossils to back it up. Sure, here is the sources: www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-02622-4 www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/02/100222162009.htm

      @XepA the occurance of a conscious organism by itself is miraculously low odds. It's odds are close to almost non-existant. I don't know what primordial earth conditions you're talking about or what it has to do with this topic but i'm very confident that it is nowhere near as complex as consciousness or biology of a human being. Also can I have a source on that?
