NASA Reports Massive Solar Flare; Massive Madness in Tow?

The sun is starting to wake up: After years of relative quiet, our sun has begun ejecting huge coronal flares. According to NASA, these solar flare-ups happen in cycles of five to 11 years, and when they occur, they bathe our planet in radiation. This active cycle began in 2011, and will continue through the next decade or so.

The most recent solar storm occurred just this past Thursday at 1:13 AM Easter Daylight Time, peaking about 45 minutes later. While the output from this storm was deemed mild, it is an established fact that solar flare-ups impact not only electronics, but also the behavior of human beings.

Just months ago, the Washington Times reported that solar storms like the one last Thursday interfere with human circadian rhythms, producing side effects that range form headaches and poor sleep to confused thinking and agitated moods. Could the coming years of increased solar activity translate to more human violence and socially disruptive behavior?

    we are carbon based beings when carbon is put under heat and pressure it crystallizes possibly our processors  are being upgraded

    this happens every 11 years!  if you read the NASA sites that this article links to, it says that this is perfectly normal and there is no need for concern.

    you don’t need to create sensational paranoid hype to get people to read your articles.  the sun’s activity is interesting enough as it is. 

    MASSIVE MADNESS IN TOW?!?!

    How about possible positive side affects? That’d be an interesting study.

    Well this explains the global weather patterns changing. I bet Al Gore will still use the effects from this to make money off of fear-mongering.
