Are we having solar flares today, or somethin'?  Cable services and even some internet services are going kaplooey, and check out this data on the San Diego power grid during the last hour!

If you want to end your misery, start enjoying it, because there's nothing the universe begrudges more than our enjoyment.

NICE! I'm thankful it is 93 million miles from us.
