Don't look now but Computer collapse and Nuke war may be the least of your problems -- How about a Sun Blow out Frying Planet Earth?? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Remember talk last year about Solar Flares peaking at Rollover???

WELL guess what...Sun is showing signs of perhaps upstaging Y2K and Boris'Resignation... So maybe embeddeds knock down all infrastructure and Russia nukes us and vice versa... What could be worse, right???

Try a solar coronal mass ejection of an X-ray class level that fries Planet Earth??? Hmmm It could happen... some solar experts fear this cycle may be worse than any other... there has even been some talk that things are not right with the sun at all...defying solar theories to date... Some think the back part of the sun blew out a few years early 1960s. I don't know about any of that... but take a look at this stuff from a rather "uniquely different" website called ORBIT. It's a little eccentric ... but note the live links to solar action...and note all the NASA satellite images from the SOHO solar satellite that monitors live photo images around the clock... note all the bizarre photo images... showing on 12/30/ a coronal stream that looks a lot like our number "6"... I'm not drawing conclusions here Just giving you a heads up to go look and think hmmmm... it's certainly interesting and maybe it will give some deeper perspectives and alter our thinking about what a "10" really is... Computer Y2K is not going to be a "10" like a CME from the sun could become should it happen... NOW that folks would be a real TEOTWAWKI wouldn't it? So check this out below...



Watching the Nasa and Navy Lasco C3 sites last night I noted that no images were posted after 2318 UTC 12/29/99. Finally an image was posted at 4:18UTC 12/30/99.

Low and behold, it contained an image of a large solar prominence extending hundreds of thousand, maybe millions of miles from the sun, curl in on itself to form what looks like a giant number 6. In two years of looking at the daily images, I have not seen this before. The magnetic force at that distance must be very large.

Note that the Elfrad group monitors a lot of various radio signals and other various spectrums too. They have no ax to grind.

Woe, that is mind numbing. Thought this was gonna be our regular 12 year pinnacle, with any new problems due only to our atmospheric changes...Now if you see 2 more sixes, call me and tell me to get under my bed!

A couple of weeks ago, somebody posted a claim that the solar flare activity was not going to occur until much later in 2000. DOES ANYONE HAVE THE LATEST AND GREATEST UPDATE to the status of this potential "double whammy" with Y2K?

HAARP needs a bigger page, they fell way off the chart (7:25 am EST).

RC: Last year the govt. commissioned a study on "the survivability of UVX radiation" Scarey. I thought maybe it had to do with possible nuke hazards this year but researching revealed that UVX is solar radiation. I hope they weren't studing it for the reasons you've mentioned here but suddenly I'm wondering if maybe all this massing of the troops and FEMA, fortified bunkers and such is for much, much more than just Y2K. I'll go look for the article FWIW, and post.

reminds me of an old joke:

an expectant father is waiting for his child to be born.......the nurse comes out and says "i'm sorry...but your baby has no legs"

the man says "what could be worse....what could be worse?"

the nurse says "the baby has no arms"

"oh, no!" he says, "what could be worse....what could be worse?"

the nurse tells him the baby has no body....and that actually it's just a big eye-ball

"oh, no!" he exclaims, "what could be worse....what could be worse?"

she pats him on the back and says gently...... "it's blind"

RC, WTF is this about? I want the full story.

Went there

Visible from Earth. I thought I was just going blind. huh. Another benefit of chemtrails, block the radiation, heh. So what the hell? I assume the center disc represents the relative size of the sun. I really thought my eyes were playin tricks on me when I saw this; I'll be damned. Mind numbing rambles, sorry.

On the SOHO pictures the circle in the center is a special screen inside the camera imaging to block out the sun from harming the imaging system and allowing the corona to be studied. It's same principle as an eclipse...idea is to study what is ejected from solar surface.

Here is a link that gives you further links to a number of things like solar problems, volcanic activity, earthquakes, etc. Happy hunting. Sorry I haven't taken the time to learn to hotlink.

Umm... Guys, I just checked out the Orbit site to check out the sun. I'm amazed that anyone can really take it seriously. It's a FANTASY/SCIENCE FICTION/JUNK SCIENCE site. This is hardly what I would call an authoratative site. For example, there is a section a bit down the page called THE EXPERIMENT. Click on the link and it brings you to this page where you can find the following story:



In the previous articles we looked at the background as to what is transpiring in and on the outer reaches of our Solar system, and who is involved. Now let us look for an explanation as to why these events are unfolding at this time.


Approximately 500,000 years ago, TERRA (planet earth) experienced a severe orbital problem due to a glancing blow from a passing meteorite. This resulted in a rapidly decaying orbit, where failure to control this event would have created a ripple effect on neighbouring stars in addition to other neighbouring orbiting celestial bodies.

Thus was the scenario that brought in the involvement of the Galactic Federation. In an unprecedented move, the Federation called upon its planetary members to devise a solution to eliminate or control this imminent problem. Due to the very nature of this potential orbital disaster, much scientific and physical expertise was required in order to implement and accomplish the necessary rescue. Because of this complex task a number of worlds were involved in working on this solution.

It goes downhill in believability from there. RC, you are so good at spotting all the lies and spin of government officials, CEOs and Banking shills, yet you believe anything you read off this site. No wonder you have such trouble separating fact from fiction. You are in your own little world. What makes you think that those photos of the sun are genuine and not the result of some fancy computer graphics? And even if they are genuine, what makes you think the person behind this site, or you for that matter, have the necessary background to interpret the significance of the pictures?

Sheesh, some people will believe anything. Unless, of course, it comes from a government spokesperson.
