    I love this FAQ issued by the USGS/CVO when that stupid movie came out:

    http://vulcan.wr.usgs.gov/...

    Read the whole thing, but I just want to highlight this little bit:

    Q: Are there any restless volcanoes in the U.S. today?

    [snip]

    At Yellowstone in northwest Wyoming, one of the largest active volcanic systems on Earth, spectacular hydrothermal activity (geysers, hot springs, mud volcanoes), frequent earthquakes, and large ground movements remind us constantly that future eruptions are likely. The likelihood of an eruption at Yellowstone anytime soon, though, is much lower than at many other volcanoes in the western U.S.
