  • Where We Will Be 12/22

    So many believe The Mayans were right. Well this fella says el-wrongo.
    On December 22nd. I will be right here. Or freezing my buns off. It is supposed to turn cold. Either way, I plan on being right here-on earth. Enjoying my new home, my family, and probably freezing my buns off looking for a damn SUV.

    Who's with me? It ain't gonna happen. I'll be the voice of 'NAH.'

    I'm a little concerned about Solar storms - also called sunspots. In previous times of maximum Solar activity there has been serious devastation on Earth. The last time it happened was in the late 19th century so the only real damage it did was to take out lots of telegraph wires. If a Solar storm of that magnitude hit these days it would take out power lines, satellites etc. While the damage would not be irreparable it would mean a lower standard of living for a lot of people for some time.

    The good news is that the Earth is protected for some of the time by Jupiter's magnetosphere. Article on Wikipedia.org explains about the effect it has on the Solar system http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnetosphere_of_Jupiter In order for Earth to be protected, Jupiter has to be relatively close to Earth.

    Looking at the current positions of the planets on the fourmilab.ch website http://www.fourmilab.ch/cgi-bin/Solar/action?sys=-Sf you can see Earth (in blue) and Jupiter (in brown) are relatively close.

    The danger period (of high Solar activity) extends into 2013. You can change the date on the fourmilab.ch website to see the movement of the planets.

            My mother's holiday from work begins on the 21st. Quetzacotle and Tatopec better be prepared for a shitstorm if they decide to end the world on the first day she's had off since Summer.

                        The 22nd is my step-father's birthday, his 67th. I guess I'll finish up my Christmas shopping during the day, and get together to celebrate in the evening.

                            Ya'all is welcome to join the 'NAH' club. Yeah, I am prepared for Zombies, bring em' on.
                            I'll still be here, still listening to Dio. Still banging my head. And I have plenty of batteries.
                            Solar storms are like sunspots, they come and go. I can deal with them most of the time, and when you don't own a cell? Don't bother me.

                              One wonders how the Mayans could possibly find enough swimsuit models to fill the next calendar edition.

                              I took the one less traveled by,
                              And that has made all the difference.
