Science is now, just NOW, saying that geomagnetic storms could be making you physically/mentally sick!
They come up with the craziest thoughts…
[via io9] Scientific Evidence that Geomagnetic Storms Are Making You Sick
Geomagnetic storms aren’t just beautiful to look at — these disturbances in the Earth’s magnetic field could also be messing with your mind and body. There’s a ton of evidence suggesting that geomagnetic storms can cause everything from depression to cardiac problems — and may even be influencing the stock market.
A new paper suggests there’s a lot more evidence for this connection than anybody (Anybody NOT Anguished Repose) realizes. We talked to the paper’s author, and here’s what he told us.
The paper, published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, argues that there’s a large, disparate, and controversial body of scientific literature that links geomagnetic storms to a number of animal behaviors, including cardiovascular, psychiatric and behavioral changes in humans. And author Dr. James Close has the enormous literature review to back up his claims. [Read More]
And by “more than anybody realized”, I understand they are not talking us, cause…
“Yeah – Knew this!”
Understand, I’m not a scientist by any means, nor have I ever claimed to be, but we here at AR do utilize practical intelligence, in other words the science of common sense, and rather well on occasion, to reason certain things out.
It’s just what we do…
However it is ever so nice to see Science catch up, especially since this news comes with a very nice side-effect and that being?
A very satisfactory ‘ego stroke’ to our intelligence.
Excellent. Not going to lie, it is highly enjoyed.
It was, because then I read THIS (below) news?
[via io9] Say hello to one of the most violent sunspots we’ve seen in years
You’re looking at a picture of Active Region 1429 — that’s the decidedly dull name that NOAA has given the sunspot region behind some of the most wicked solar flares and coronal mass ejections astronomers have seen in close to decade.
Remember all that news last week about downed radio communications and rerouted plane flights? You’ve got AR1429 to thank for that. And while this particular flare has almost rotated entirely out of Earth’s view, astronomers say we can expect even more instances of violent solar activity in the months and years ahead, as we approach what’s called the solar maximum — the period of peak solar activity in the Sun’s roughly 11-year solar cycle.

And it just puts such a huge, wet blanket…
On my Ego-Boost High.
Then Mother Nature just coldly takeths away.
The “crazy” is coming in with these storms…
We have not months, but YEARS, to look forward the sun bringing just that.
*shakes head sadly*
