    But even if he did announce it, would you believe him???

    Could you imagine the run on the super markets and Best Buy and Walmart?
    Lol, the thought of people looting best buy for burned up iphones and big screens makes me smile. But then I shudder at the thought that all those people will be hungry (probably from working up a sweat stealing a 60" flatscreen) and looking for a free meal.

    I'm not recommending this, mind you...

    But if an EMP or solar flare knocks out all electronics, setting up at 200yds from a Best Buy entrance will yield some great target practice, and you'll be helping yourself in the long run by eliminating idiots.

    just a correction to last time there were some flares x and m but no cme. This time there is a higher chance about 5% of is she at me which is much worse than a flare the flares alone last time cause 2 major blackouts see substantial cme would be much much worse

    Because 2209 has been "working" for so long and has continued to dominate the region it is more likely to produce CMEs than it was the last time it was "earth facing".

    It still requires a very close hit to do much damage and the odds are in our favor - but it could set one off that would intersect with the Earth's position the 2 - 7 days after the event. If you watch space weather - and you should check it daily - you will have time to disconnect your home from the grid before it hits.

    Also - none of your appliances or electronics will be damaged unless they are connected to the grid and get a big spike from the grid. CMEs and solar flares don't produce the E1 pulse that destroy electronics - that only happens with high altitude nuclear detonations - 40 or more miles in altitude. Satelites are destroyed by the direct effect of partical bombardment, not from EMPs.
