Either I'm just way out of touch or the collective iq here has been dropping as of late. I suppose either is possible.
I predicted a court action appx. year in advance = 1 flag.
Pic of the sun doing what it does = priceless

Well maybe the point is that there is a concern. Check out this article
"In 2009 the National Academy of Sciences produced a 134 page report on the potential damage that another major solar flare could cause in Severe Space Weather Events—Understanding Societal and Economic Impacts." Michael Coston EMT-II
It is really not a joke and the fact that "NASA, while admitting that a serious solar storm could happen practically anytime, also cautions that the next big one could be many decades away. It is a genuine threat, they say, but the timing is impossible to predict." Colton
Yes it is true that there are other concerns, asteroids, earthquakes, volcanoes, etc., but all of these possible disasters are a bit more predictable than solar flares/storms.
I had a lot of laughs here, but it really isn't a laughing matter.
We are all going to die one day.
