  • Good luck prepping for this...


    Well here's something I'm not even sure how anyone could prepare for:

    Even going underground wouldn't totally protect you from high energy cosmic rays.

    Perhaps science will invent a magnetic shield in the future.. maybe something that can reroute the energetic particles around one's living area.

    "The geomagnetic field has been losing 30 percent of its intensity in the last 3,000 years,' said Dr. Thouveny. 'From this value, we predict it will drop to near zero in a few centuries or a millennia."

    Well if they're right about it I'll be beyond dust, as will my great x100 grand child. By then I'm sure we'll have figured out how to wipe ourselves out or they'll have figured how to reach out into the stars and spread the virus of humanity.
    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you!

      I have also heard and read where the lack of solar activity (sun spots, etc.) allows more cosmic rays to hit us.

        Ha! Yup.. The amount of cosmic rays hitting us has increased steadily for the past several years to the tune of something like a whopping 20%.

        When those little buggers make it to ground level, they can actually knock electrons lose inside your own computer and cause errors. In fact, with processors being so crammed with transistors, the chances of it happening have skyrocketed. INTEL has actually designed a special kind of processor for critical systems. Its actually two processors on one chip that perform all calculations and functions in tandem and then compare the outputs.

          Would the dual processor catch and fix my typo's. Now that would worth investing in. I only worry about things I can prepare for.

            UPDATE:
            So for all you folks who think the Magnetic North Pole moving around is something that is far into the future, I give you this little bit of information:
            https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-00007-1

            Take a close look at the dates, then compare every 20 years. Its speeding up, big time. Has moved 700 miles in just 20 years.. and its accelerating.

              I saw that earlier today. A pole shift could be in the works.

                No. A tandem processor can not fix your stupid mistakes or my stupid mistakes. You just can't fix Stupid. Although, as I understand it, they can fix ugly now. We're making progress!

                EDIT: Ooops.. this should have said:
                "No, A tandem processor can not fix your stupid mistakes or my stupid mistakes, but it can prevent a nuclear reactor from melting down or the accidental launch of a ballistic missile"

                There, I fixed it.

                  And if anyone thinks the amount of cosmic radiation is high now.... just wait until that field weakens even more as it flips.

                  We'll be programming out computers to auto save our work every 10 seconds and cancer rates are going to soar.
