You ignored the entire article quite well.
"Sun activity goes through cycles that stretch about 11 years. Currently the sun is moving toward the peak of a very energetic cycle which scientists expect to last through the middle of this year."
I have lived through 3 of these already, and nope, it's not something to worry about.
I don't really worry, myself.

However, it is a fact a CME ejected at the wrong time and of sufficient size can change the environment here in a very profound way. Amazing luck we have had over the years, eh? Ain't luck and randomness grand?

Well done.
Spoken like a bible thumper who's never really read the bible without his god goggles on.

Or never read it at all.

Thank you.

What's the first blue pixel?
I would say the first pixel would be the one the designer put their first.

Can you tell which one it is? Probably not.

I never said that populations don't evolve. But at some point a population of something gradually became a population of Tyrannosaurus Rex, meaning that there had to be a first T-Rex, just like there had to be a last T-Rex.
No, that is part of the point. It is *our* definition and classification scheme. In nature, the lines are blurry.

Still having problems with those hemorrhoids?

The Doctor won’t remove them?

Well try hiring a 5 ton tow truck to pull those bastards out of your as*.

Then you’ll feel so much better. Why live with pain and misery?

"Magnetism is the key to understanding the Sun."

That's a big sucker brewing. The quickness makes the mass more energetic, and less likely to be held in place. That is likely to be a big wad shot.

The sun is 109 earth diameters. Of course, due to that 6 times our diameter being on the surface of a sphere, it occupies much less than 1/18th of the surface, but given the depth it can go, you are talking many, many times our volume that can get upchucked of hot nasty stuff. Say it is 6 diameters deep, a shot string 6 times the diameter of the earth of plasma could hit the earth. However, it is likely to be a minor inconvenience at worst. Surely chance will spare us the pellet that would smack this clay pigeon real hard.

But it never hurts to have your soul settled.:-)

However, I do take care to hold it a moment, and say a few magic numbers of Polymath's to shoo away his virtual particles. They can upset my tummy.

Wow. Hard to find a copy of The Alchemist. The copyright guys are active on that one.
The first song is The Alchemist by Enigma. That is the name of his mobile music studio. Light up a doobie and put that part on fullscreen. Take a photo tour of the rest of you. Understand the forces you see are at work within you, to. It's a matter of scale and interconnectedness

Dave, I get to the same place you're talking about when I listen to Coltrane, Parker, Mingus, Monk, Sun Ra, etc. I don't need video enhancement, as a good two channel stereo system (turntable, tube amp., tube preamp) creates an almost holographic soundstage that, unfortunately, most people have never experienced. The doob is optional...

I went to Starbuck's and the barista said "careful, I accidentally made it really hot" ... my reply was "it is a HOT latte, I expect no less" with a smile. She got a kick out of it. If it's less than 100 degrees, I would complain about it, no way I'm drinking cold java.

Nice description of the mechanics. Is a little weak on the actual effects from a really good zap. Things like pole shifts, axial tilt, a major league rearrangement of the way things were. You could even miss work the next day. You might not want to go to the beach, though.

All in how things interact. This is a lesson how abiogenesis could have began. Right connections at the right time.

It's easier to post youtube. I prefer pure sound, too. Only have one good ear to hear it, but I appreciate it.
