What the hell was that?
OK loons, no need to panic but what’s up with the latest solar eruption? A recent solar flare has just messed with China’s radio communications and NASA are warning there’s more to come. Seems Earth is due for a geomagnetic storm which is expected wreak havoc on our high tech infrastructure and this little flare is a warm up of things yet to come. So what the hell is a solar storm? It’s when weather in space causes a a temporary disturbance to the Earth’s magnetosphere. The last time we had a big solar storm was in 1921 and it caused global chaos, wiping out telegraph wires and this time they expect it to wipe out the internet too. Bye-bye satellites and electrical power grids. Scientists are predicting the storm will hit Earth in 2012 .Oooh goodie, I just hope it isn’t on the 21st December because the Mayans have already penciled that date in on their calendars.
Psst Does that mean I will have to Morse code my friggin blog posts?
Hi, just messing with ya!
OK, no need to panic but WTF, remember NASA’s Voyager 2, the unmanned probe that was blasted off into space 33 years ago? No? Well anywho, the damn thing has begun transmitting bizarre, unintelligible signals according to German UFO expert Hartwig Hausdorf. Mr Hausdorf believes aliens have hijacked the probe which is now located near the edge of the solar system. Hmm, maybe they are just sick and tired of hearing a loop of 70’s music and greetings in 55 different languages so are sending us back some of our own medicine? Oh and NASA’s spin on the thing…. it’s a glitch in the computer memory….. but we know better than to believe them, now don’t we loons!
Can the owner of the car with a multi million dollar space balloon splattered over it please come to the front counter. A NASA space balloon has come to an embarrassing end after it crashed through a fence and onto a car (tipping it over) shortly after taking off in Alice Springs. The balloon and it’s payload are now scattered into a thousand pieces (well, there goes the duct tape suggestion) after springing a leak 26,000m up.No one was injured (except for pride).
Psst Geez, I hope there was nothing important in it ! Another tax right-off!
Did anyone happen to hear a loud bang on 8th of October by any chance? Hmm, well if you did, it was probably the big friggin asteroid that exploded over Sulawesi in Indonesia. Come on people you must have heard something, it was equivalent to 50,000 tons of TNT!. The scary part is no one, not even NASA saw it was coming! Hmm, considering it was the largest asteroid explosion ever observed, you would have thought someone would have said “WTF is that?”. Nope, a 10m planetoid comes hurtling down upon us , explodes 15km above our heads, with a force more powerful than three Hiroshima bombs and not so much as boo out of NASA. Everyone friggin panic!
