The stream of 160 degree water released on Wednesday night by the so-called Steamboat Geyser lasted for roughly 10 minutes, delighting a small number of "geyser gazers" who have waited years for such a show, Yellowstone spokesman Dan Hottle said.
"There are a lot of people who wait hour after hour, day after day, for things to erupt," he said. Yellowstone visitors could potentially wait a lifetime for Steamboat Geyser, which has gone as long as 50 years between major eruptions. Steamboat Geyser last sent a superheated torrent of water hundreds of feet into the air in May 2005.

Unless some way is found to siphon off all that energy, Yellowstone IS going to blow, it's just a matter of when, and how many of the planet's population are going to be affected. Unless you have the technical skills that can be directed towards solving this future problem, it's pretty pointless dwelling on the subject. Unless you're a disaster porn fan, that is.
