Although the eruption was much larger that the 1815 eruption of Tambora, also in Indonesia, the amount of sulfur found in the volcanic deposits from Toba suggest that maybe it didn’t really emit much more sulfur than that Tambora eruption.

Turns out that much of the power of placebos is due to our old adversary regression to the mean.
Scientific American: "Study provides new information about what's going on".
Sabine Hossenfelder launches a very spirited attack on the idea of a multiverse.
Many theoretical physicists have argued the conclusion that we live in a multiverse is based on sound scientific reasoning. But that isn't so — and I will tell you why.
Ethan Siegel at Forbes kinda, sorta agrees.
Something I didn't know:
“They’re not telling you where your DNA comes from in the past,” he told me, “They’re telling you where on Earth your DNA is from today.”
Which means that who's in the testing company's reference sample matters a lot.
