After cancelling Transpicuous Views for last night, my internet sorted itself out (and my headache) and some of the UnFuckers and I got together and had a chat…..
WTAF is going on?! and “hurricane” Irma were the big topics.
SIDE NOTE: I know that some people in Florida might take this conversation negatively, as in: calling bullshit on the “hurricane” factor. This isn’t about saying “nothing happened”. Yes there is/was torrential rains and strong winds and flooding and damage in a lot of areas. The point I was making was that the fear porn card was heavily played and mass evacuations for the “Cataclysmic” hurricane were definitely over played. What was the real reason? THAT is the question.
In other news, there was another X Class – X8.1- solar flare. Now, the flare happened while the sunspot was turning the western limb so it wasn’t earth facing, but there was a massive CME with it and there is a chance that earth will get a glancing blow and geomagnetic storm tomorrow.
