For the most part?
Still blind as to the extent of how solar flares affect us.

The sun has unleashed four potent solar flares over the past few days, according to NASA.
One of the flares on Sunday was the strongest solar eruption this year and created a solar radiation storm on Wednesday.
The flare erupted on the side of the sun that was not facing earth but it did cause a strong radio blackout. The flare was categorized as an R3 on the NOAA’s space weather scales from R1 to R5.
Experimental NASA research models show that the latest flare left the sun at around 745 miles per second.
NASA says radiation from the latest flare may stream toward two of its spacecraft, including the Spitzer Space Telescope. Engineers have the option to switch them in safe mode to protect instruments.
The side of the sun where Sunday’s eruption occurred will rotate into Earth’s view soon, allowing scientists to study the active region.
Experts say that a rise in solar activity is common right now because of the phase it is in currently in its 11-year activity cycle. More strong solar flares could be coming in the days ahead.
The flares can temporarily disrupt GPS signals and communications satellites, but most people will not notice any impacts from the flares.
Believe it or not, Science?
They freaking affect us!
“…but most people will not notice any impacts from the flares.”
Seriously, you big goobers?
Jeez, make out a post-it note…
[via Carlini Institute]How Recent Solar Flares Are Affecting Humans ~by Heather Carlini
A solar flare is a magnetic storm on the Sun which appears to be a very bright spot and a gaseous surface eruption such as in the above photograph. Solar flares release huge amounts of high-energy particles and gases that are tremendously hot. They are ejected thousands of miles from the surface of the Sun.
There appears to be a direct connection between the Sun’s solar storms and human biological effect especially after an “M” class solar flare. The conduit which facilitates the charged particles from the Sun to human disturbance is the very same conduit which steers Earth’s weather through the Magnetic Field on Earth, and also through the magnetic fields around humans.
Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, tornadoes, and wind storms appear to happen after strong solar activity on the sun.
Geomagnetic Activity on the Sun Influences our Thoughts
I have noticed in my own research that solar activity is known to influence human consciousness. Solar flares affect the Central Nervous System (stomach lining), all brain activity (including equilibrium), along with human behaviour and all psycho-physiological (mental-emotional-physical) response. Solar flares can cause us to be nervous, anxiousness, worrisome, jittery, dizzy, shaky, irritable, lethargic, exhausted, have short term memory problems and heart palpitations, feel nauseous, queasy, and to have prolonged head pressure and headaches.
As someone who actually works in law enforcement…
And actually SEES firsthand the effects of solar flares via the antics of the general populous?
Let me reassure you?
People going nuts on high solar flare activity days?
[via Iquisitr]40 Patients Escape Psychiatric Hospital, 30 Still On The Run ~By Todd Rigney
Of the 40 patients who escaped from a psychiatric hospital in Kenya, only 10 have returned to the facility.
Dozens of people reportedly fled the Mathari Mental Hospital in Nairobi on Sunday morning. Security officers prevented an additional 35 from escaping. It’s believed the patients overpowered the guards before managing to force open the door to their ward.
“Many scaled over the wall and went through Mathare area and a few confident ones used the main gate. When they are traced they should be brought back for their medication,” Police Chief Samuel Anampiu explained.
He added, “They must have strategized. It is not possible that, without proper planning, 75 people can break two doors and more than half of them run away.”
It’s currently believed that 30 patients are still unaccounted for at the psychiatric hospital in Kenya. Anampiu is concerned about these individuals getting the medication they need in order to treat their illnesses.
“We are now talking of 30 mental patients who are not back. Some have come back on their own volition while some were captured and brought back by their relatives,” the police chief said.
Two of the patients who escaped from the hospital later returned on their own free will. Eight of the escapees were brought back to the facility by their families. This mean that 30 of the 40 patients who escaped the psychiatric hospital are still on the loose.
What am I saying?
When it comes to solar flares?
People go nuts!
Especially, um, let me just call them HIGHLY SENSITIVE people, who seem to be more susceptible than others.
You should really watch such stupid quotes as “…but most people will not notice any impacts from the flares” because, oh?
You could really not be MORE wrong.
