Wonder if that's what strange blue/white/red star I've been seeing the last few days is.
things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
so, he does
the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
-- WW2 for the l33t

There is no known relationship between individual solar flares and weather patterns, the only thing it will hit is Communications, Satellites etc.
Satellites can be protected but due to the weight and cost they ar'nt.
So beware you sky tv viewers.
Which is a good thing as i think sky sucks, and have been ripping people off for the last few years.
But theese are my views against sky, i will not be held responsible for making flares.
