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

    Melted cubes may re-appear, again, later, at different locations in the freezer.

    But that one missed earth, as the vast majority of them do. Relatively speaking, we're a small target. But like a 500-year flood, it's a matter of when, not if, one will hit.

    re: "And I wonder about all the unshielded electronics in cars, aircraft, PCs, hospitals, factories, etc."

    Long lines, higher latitudes. Those are the common denominators that spell "trouble".

    e = -L * di/dt and the sine of the Latitude.

    The thing people fail to understand about 500 year floods is that there is a 50% probability that one will happen during any 250 year period. o_O

    Better concentrate on using tree rings... the ice in Greenland is melting.

    Oh, wait.... I remember now. That's a hoax according to one non-authoritative source. The ice isn't really melting. That's just your over active imagination making you think it's melting.

    And a 1/500 chance in any given year.
