    So i got to thinking right. You know, since FT8 came out the sun spot numbers have been dropping, there has been very little proper-gators, people have been arguing and fighting about stupid things like is rag chewing still relevant in this post apocalyptic FT8 universe we live in.

    And so today I tried to do some FT8 on 20m and had to give up because its now the hottest day on record since yesterdays hottest day on record and I did FT8 yesterday also and i think i am causing global warming from doing FT8

    Coincidence? I think not. FT8 is the root of all evil and is not only going to be the death of us, it will also be the death of our sun, the planet and the universe and everything. Not the lizardmen, not contrails, not the Illuminati not even us falling off the edge of a flat earth from continental drift. No, the root cause all these things and more is FT8.

    And its all contained in the headlines of newspapers if only you can decipher the code in my research pictured below.

    I can see the next headline now already: "FT8 driving sunspot numbers LOWER"
