Resistance is futile. You will be evaporated!
Protons, neutrons, and I'm pretty sure I qualify as an oldtron.
THUS SAYETH WIKIPEDIA:
"Ice cores containing thin nitrate-rich layers have been analysed to reconstruct a history of past solar storms predating reliable observations. Some researchers have stated that data from Greenland ice cores show evidence of individual solar-proton events, including the Carrington event. More recent work by the ice core community casts significant doubt on this interpretation, and shows that nitrate spikes are not a result of solar energetic particle events. Indeed, no consistency is found in cores from Greenland and Antarctica, and nitrate events can be due to terrestrial events such as burnings, so use of this technique is now in doubt.
Less severe storms have occurred in 1921 and 1960, when widespread radio disruption was reported. The March 1989 geomagnetic storm knocked out power across large sections of Quebec. On July 23, 2012 a "Carrington-class" solar superstorm (solar flare, coronal mass ejection, solar EMP) was observed; its trajectory missed Earth in orbit. Information about these observations was first shared publicly by NASA on April 28, 2014."
And considering how many '500-year floods' we seem to be having lately...
Don't forget this fairly recent one: https://www.history.com/news/a-perfect-solar-superstorm-the-1859-carrington-event
The scientific community jumps to far too many dubious conclusions based on "ice core samples".
Yes, but you only qualify as a medium-oldtron because your atomic number is only 60. An old-oldtron with an atomic number of 94 or greater, is known as a "Kreek", because of the noise their atoms make when they try to get out of their favorite chair. Your subset is known as "Pfarts".
And here is the scientific proof, courtesy of Wikipedia. "The number of protons in the nucleus of the atom is equal to the atomic number (Z). The number of electrons in a neutral atom is equal to the number of protons. The mass number of the atom (M) is equal to the sum of the number of protons and neutrons in the nucleus."
I had some of it in a drink of water at the foot of a glacier in Alaska, but I swear I didn’t use all of it! (The 10,000 year old water was pretty good too!)
Imagine that, the sun, with all its solar storms has something to do with warming the earth. I thought it was just us doing all the warming.
MAGAZOO (good grief)
