Solar storms and the end of life as we know it and going back 100 years and such

    It was a passing thing so I don't have any good details or even a link (sorry!), but I heard something on TV the other day about NASA doing some study about solar storms and predicting one could occur in the next few years that could wipe out electricity all along the eastern United States.

    Anyone know anything else about all this?

    ADD: Just found this link, which seems related: http://www.usatoday.com/tech/science/2007-03-27-maya-2012_n.htm

    I hope this happens to the East.

    Then we'll see who is flyover country, cocksuckers.

    If the solar storms are as bogus as the Mayan apocalyptic thing, then I'm not too worried. I'm sure the bunkers are being built somewhere, though.

    Now I don't have to tell you good folks what's been happening in our beloved little town. Sheriff murdered, crops burned, stores looted, people stampeded, and cattle raped. The time has come to act, and act fast. I'm leaving.

    Is this related to Y2K? I still have saltines.

    There can be no such thing as solar storms. The sun burns at exactly the same temperature all the time. Just ask those who believe in man-made global warming. Warmer temperatures couldn't possibly be from the sun burning more intensely. Just couldn't possibly happen. Liberals wouldn't allow it.

    As long as we Left Coast urbanites are OK, let the red states go screw.

    Solar flares can, and did, cause power outages. See Quebec, 1989.


    I think the Mayan calendar thing is Art Bell bollocks.

    I hope this happens during baseball season. I'm sick of hearing about the fucking Yankees and Red Sox.

    The state best-equipped to handle a solar storm is Texas, which has its own electric grid. The East Coast and the PNW are toast. Enjoy those day games in the Bronx for a while.

    Um, what, is that weird, building bunkers?

    I think it's great that this is one of the first real concerns raised in the thread. Like, seriously, I laughed out loud, but not at you, just at how I agreed in my head.

    Man I love sports.
