Rollin' Like Sisyphus

The Cruel, Fickle Nature Of The Thermo-Nuclear Reactor In The Sky

Hammer dropped.

Artist Rendition.

A giver of life, a destroyer of civilizations.
So yeah, let’s cram that into a bottle “with magnets” and see how well the power grid holds up.
Anyway, head’s up:

A series of three massive solar flares over the past week has bathed Earth in higher than normal amounts of radiation, with the potential to temporarily black out radio communication and navigational equipment if the sun was hitting that part of the planet.

Trouble may be a’brewing, and given which way the winds are blowing, an extra half-step may make all the difference in the world.

    All good. I’m ordering everything to go these days. And I tell them to make it snappy. I can’t wait forever to die before my time, you know. My own clock is ticking, overclocked as it is, at a pace that just isn’t sustainable.

    Something about how you put things always makes me feel better about it. I try to express it back. I would laugh, but I might choke and die just a little too early.

    Sun waking up? Maybe we’ll get some warming after all.
