    I'm not worried about high energy protons...it's the high energy morons that have me scared.

    By the way, if humans get hemorrhoids do space aliens get assteroids?

    re: "A storm like this today would cause enormous damage to our technology."

    A *lot* was learned from the event in 1989. A lot of transmission line operators "ops" manuals were re-written ... we get notification ahead of time and those procedures are put into practice.
