    A chunk of sun, eighty times larger than the Earth hurtling toward us at two million miles an hour.

    The thing is, if what this joker is saying were true, the temperature would not be dropping. It would be rising the closer it got to the Earth.

    The man is a quack.

    I've used his chili recipe a couple times, very good for SW style.

    I'm with pinoy now though, let's go feast on seafood and sushi.

    Well don't that beat all....he has a chilling recipe. If Tim is talking about the Chesapeake, I am in...I love that part of our country. Good fishing & water fowl hunting. Maybe we could all have a good cold beer together before we burn up:thumbs:

    It's not a "chunk" of the sun. It's a solar flare made of ionized gas. It's not accurately to say it's "coming at us", when in fact it's been sent out from the surface of the sun to everywhere simultaneously.

    They go in cycles every 11 years. We are at a peak activity. We might see more northern lights and see some amazing radio wave skipping in the upper atmosphere (dx in amateur radio parlance.)

    NASA said in September 2010 a major solar flare would hit late 2013. Old news.

    With all the hot air on this board, we should all be well conditioned for the attack.
