Solar Flares on Newsfeed -The biggest solar flare in 4 years erupted from the Sun yesterday and is headed toward Earth…So, naturally, Paramount is in pre-production with a Bruce Willis vehicle called Flare.

That’s what she said, that’s what she said, that’s what she said and that’s what she said. On a more serious note… The flare could disrupt satellites and power grids. Are you serious… If my DirecTV stops working during another episode of Househunters I swear to God I will flip out.The largest solar flare in the last 4 years occurred yesterday.
