    Remember when Kaku was talking about these solar storms a few years ago and how they would get stronger and stronger in 2012 and possible knock out all satellites and shut down all power.

    8 years. Wow. That's amazing. 8 whole years. That's a really inordinate number of years.

    It's almost inconceivable that it's been 8 entire years since a more-memorable-Something happened once in history.

    Who can even remember what the world was like 8 years ago? Certainly not me. I'm pretty sure people were depending on the Pony Express for communication.

    One of these days some crazy shit's gonna come around, it'll be real, and nobody will believe it because of all the 'crying wolf'. This isn't that day.

    Yup, these might be just as bad as the last solar storms that didn't knock out all satellites or shut down all power.

    People might actually care if there was a bald eagle with a tear running from its eye somewhere in that picture.

    Edit: And a waving American flag in the background too. Gotta have that!
