Yellowstone is a ticking time bomb, and the documentaries on it aren't very promising.
I'm not really "near" Yellowstone here in MN but I'll be in the immediate fallout area if the place does go up. It'll probably be like Pompeii!
No sense worrying about it though, whatever happens, happens.
If yellowstone explodes, to its full potential, it doesnt really matter how "close" you are..
basically the entire world is toast..
but I agree..no sense in worrying about the end of the world..
it honestly doesnt bother me at all..
if we go, we go..all we can do is make sure we are ready..whatever that might mean to you

soon in a geological sense means sometime in the next 10,000 years. Dont worry peeps.

It would be a mass extinction or sorts but I'm sure some people would survive. It would be a new post-apocalyptic type world. Maybe man moves underground living in factory-hives, growing veggies hydroponically with artificial lights, rebreather hoods, cyber augmentations, etc. It might be like Tank Girl with everyone fighting over power (energy) & water - I mean more than they do already!
there are earthquakes at yellowstone every day, its a massive active volcano, dozens a day.....every day since we put seismographs in the ground there.......
it wouldnt be mass extinction if it blows.....likely just wipe out what evers living in approximately 1/3 of the US and have a few cool years world wide due to ash in the air.....but it wouldnt be a massive extinction event, it wasnt when it blew big in the past.....
locals dont give it much thought cause when it finally blows they arent going to exist anymore, i think the term is vaporized......hell im 450 miles away and they will be measuring the debris in how many yards deep, my only hope would be enough warning that i can get far enough north into Canada that i would be OK, gonna prolly depend where the jet stream is........think the last time it blew it buried South Dakota in 12 or 14 feet of ash and such.......Texas even had deposits a couple feet deep.....
the US would be screwed.....the rest of the world will have a rough decade weather wise but the world will be far from toast.........
