Overnight Thread-Hump Day Coronal Mass Ejection Edition (CDR M)

I'm back! Evenin' Moron Nation! How are we doing on this hump day? In all of the doom and gloom out there (thanks Monty), you might've missed this little bit.

The Sun has entered a bit of an active phase. We had a couple of big time flares the last few days and a few Coronal Mass Ejections. One of the CME's hit us today around noontime with a speed around 2000 km/s. You can track all of the fun here.

This is a particularly impressive video of a CME that thankfully was aimed away from us. Now to cheer you up, here's an article on What If The Biggest Solar Storm On Record Happened Today? It would be interesting to see what would happen if a Carrington Storm type of event happened today. Probably chaos right Kratos?

Hmmm. Speaking of things a CME can do, how about what an EMP can do? North Korea Nears Completion Of Electromagnetic Pulse Bomb. Hopefully Mr. Peace Prize is paying attention.


The Libyan Rebels have got a fight on their hands and Ace had some good discussion on it earlier. This article has some good photos of the action on the ground. Not sure about their fighting technique. Not even Rambo wore bullets around his head. The guy in the office chair has got to be union though.


Well, since we are discussing war stuff, here's a little musical ditty with some pretty good war footage from the 'Stan. I always liked me a little Oingo Boingo. Is Danny Elfman even scoring movies anymore?

Now, it's been some time since we've had a discussion on cooking. I remember back during the holidays thinking that I've never had Plum Cake. So I finally got off my butt and decided to look up how to make it. I found this video highly instructional on how to make this cake but I can't seem to remember the ingredients. Maybe I'll memorize them the next time I watch it.


According to the AP, there are too many whites, men leading the military. I respond.


Text messaging may help smokers quit. Of course, if you end up having texts like this, you'll be back to smoking in no time.


More autocorrect texts here. Highly recommend checking it out.

I'll be damned. Didn't know Stormtroopers had feelings. Chicago band Shattered Trees presents a little emo stormtrooper.


Psst. Obama. This might work well on some Libyan military types. 7200 pounds of explosives. In the 'Stan of course.

After reading this article, I'm convinced that I just witnessed journalistic literary fellatio on the President. Good God she just went overboard in her description of Obummer. Cool handling of the Egyptian crisis?? Seriously. He did nothing. Just about as much as he did to earn the Nobel Peace Prize.

What's a teacher gotta do to keep a job around here? Tera Myers, ex-port star, loses teaching gig in St. Louis after student discovers her X-Rated Past. I bet the student who found out tried to blackmail her to sleep with him. She said no and he went forward with the information.


I swear, this is dog torture man. With cupcakes.

Man, these birds are damn fast.


Name this celeb.


Well, that's all for tonight. Enjoy and discuss.
