Latest comment: Lake Toba is the site of a supervolcanic eruption that occurred an 70,000 years ago. It is the largest known explosive eruption anywhere on Earth in the last 25 million years. It had global consequences, killing most humans -- creating a population bottleneck with only 15,000 survivors that affected the genetic inheritance of all humans today. So, we are all related to those 15,000 survivors.
