Solar Storm in Progress

by on Jul.19, 2011, under Astronomy

I get warnings and alerts from the NASA Heliophysics Division. There are solar winds currently impacting our magnetosphere. The data as follows:

Sunspot Number: 127
Solar Wind Speed: 615.6 km/s
X-ray Solar Flare: 6 hour at B3, 24 hours at B7
Planetary K Index: Current 4 Kp, 24 hours 5 Kp

What does all this mean? It’s a strong Solar storm, while not strong enough to mess with communication satellites, there will be increased Auroral activity in the usual areas.

How To Maintain Your Sanity

by on Jul.03, 2011, under Humor

To maintain ones sanity, sometimes you need a bit of insanity. Try one or all of these:

1. At lunch time, sit in your parked car with sunglasses on and point a hair dryer at passing cars. See if they slow down.

2. Page yourself over the intercom. Don’t disguise your voice.

3. Every time someone asks you to do something, ask if they want fries with that.

4. Put your garbage can on your desk and label it “In.”

5. Put decaf in the coffee pot for 3 weeks. Once everyone has gotten over their caffeine addictions, switch to espresso.

6. In the memo field of all your checks, write “For Smuggling Diamonds”

7. Finish all your sentences with “In Accordance With the Prophecy.”

8. Don’t use any punctuation

9. As often as possible, skip rather than walk.

10. Order a diet water whenever you go out to eat, with a serious face.

11. Specify that your drive-through order is “To Go.”

12. Sing along at the opera

13. Go to a poetry recital and ask why the poems don’t rhyme

14. Put mosquito netting around your work area and play tropical sounds all day.

15. Five days in advance, tell your friends you can’t attend their party because you’re not in the mood.

16. Have your co-workers address you by your wrestling name, rock bottom.

17. When the money comes out the ATM, scream “I won!, I won!”

18. When leaving the zoo, start running towards the parking lot, yelling “run for your lives, they’re loose!!”

19. Tell your children over dinner. “due to the economy, we are going to have to let one of you go.”

20. And the final way to keep a healthy level of insanity……. Share this with friends, family and co-workers. It’s called therapy!
