Not seeing it here...Unless you are talking about the one about an hour ago. In which case, there was a thread.

i think the word you were trying with little success to spell is "blase":




1. blase - very sophisticated especially because of surfeit; versed in the ways of the world; "the blase traveler refers to the ocean he has crossed as `the pond'"; "the benefits of his worldly wisdom" worldly sophisticated - having or appealing to those having worldly knowledge and refinement and savoir-faire; "sophisticated young socialites"; "a sophisticated audience"; "a sophisticated lifestyle"; "a sophisticated book"

2. blase - uninterested because of frequent exposure or indulgence; "his blase indifference"; "a petulant blase air"; "the bored gaze of the successful film star" bored uninterested - not having or showing interest; "an uninterested spectator"

3. blase - nonchalantly unconcerned; "a blase attitude about housecleaning" unconcerned - lacking in interest or care or feeling; "the average American...is unconcerned that his or her plight is the result of a complex of personal and economic and governmental actions...beyond the normal citizen's comprehension and control"; "blithely unconcerned about his friend's plight"


maybe you should learn to spell a little bit better before you try to correct others. illiteracy doesn't do much for you when you're trying to be convincing.

A non-issue eh?

Do you consider the disabling of the electric grid for 1-4 years a non-issue. A direct hit from a large flare would have this effect, and be the most deadly catastrophe we have ever experienced as a race.

OOHHHHH SNAP. but still mate he had a point. these flares although very common and rarely threatening ARE a dangerous possibility. and personally i'd like to know if i should stay indoors every now and then. My country being Australia having the largest skin cancer rate in the world... wouldn't you agree?

FAST CORONAL MASS EJECTION: A coronal mass ejection (CME) exploded from the vicinity of sunspot 1164 during the late hours of March 7th. It leapt away from the sun traveling ~2200 km/s, making it the fastest CME since Sept. 2005. A movie of the cloud prepared by Karl Battams of the Naval Research Lab shows a possibly substantial Earth-directed component. This CME and at least one other could brush against Earth's magnetic field on March 9th or 10th. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras.

Generally the more powerful the CME the faster it reaches us. It looks like it is aimed towards us also.

Sooo..... No update on its trajectory?

Should I start building my cardboard box house and cover it in sunblock?

Mind you... as a hobo I've already got a cardboard box house... but the sunblock never the less

ooh look its the spelling police ....well excuse me its just that u are "blithely unconcerned" about a situation that could have potentialy catastrophic consequences and just shrugging it off...BOTTOM LINE u may correct my spelling but i suggest u get a clue about the things that matter such as whats goin on in and around our planet friend...instead of wasting your time on here pointing out spelling errors.

So, when is the March 9th solar flare set to hit Earth? I saw that a solar flare is set to hit the Earth today sometime. But that big one on March 9th, when for that one?

Sunday afternoon there was a brief power outage here. I'd say 12 seconds with the power cut. The lights flickered and went down...and I only bring this up as the police scanner signal froze, picking up static, as though on a signal, for the exact duration of the outage. Then I listened to one call come in on the scanner about alarms going off (probably due to outage) about 3/4 miles away. I wandered away from the radio, though in retrospect I ought to have stood by. It was quite clear that during the outage the scanner stayed locked on a static signal, a strong one, from the beginning to the very end. I thought this was odd.

I was surprised, afterward, to see that some electrical objects were still operating (television monitors in two rooms), while computers were kicked off.

Then, on Tuesday afternoon another odd surge struck at a near by location, wiping out the phones and all electric, as well as scrambling the computer so that a specialist was needed to restart it. I do wonder.

If your gonna correct someone's grammar, then make sure what you write is correct as well. Its "I'm" not "im"
