Solar Flare

‘Solar flare’ to hit Earth on 24 January 2012

It’s all over the news that a solar “bullet” is on it’s way to Earth. They say it will hit Earth between 14:18 and 15:00 on the 24th of January 2012 (while I’m writing this it will be in 21min). So now is your chance to get a quick tan outside if you didn’t manage to get one in December. Remer to put on bronzing oil.

They also said it “might potentially cause communications disruptions to networks on the planet that could include disabling satellites in its path.” So if I’m lucky the internet will go down (don’t know if that is included in the communications disruptions) and then no work for me. Right now I won’t mind laying on the couch watching a series or two.

So if anything interesting happens, please comment it here. I will comment something after 15:00 to let you know if anything happened in Joburg (as usual I don’t think we’ll see anything spectacular).

Julius Malema sucks

UPDATE

Ok so now it looks like the solar flare will miss Earth and no one will be getting an instant tan.

    Aaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnddddd nothing happened. I was in the sun on my way home and it felt normal outside.

    Maybe it was just to get hits on some websites.

    Oh well. Did anyone else feel a difference?
