Lol, as soon as I read the thread title I thought of it
The Universe is a scary place.
700 years ago something very tiny did this..
Plans never go as expected. Do you have a plan B??
Will this affect all the magnets in my pickups..... Will it make my speaker go push when it use to go pull? These are serious questions?
The news media will.
You know I have increasingly had the urge to stand on my head and now I know why...
That’s from the movie Yam’s Gone Wild.
Point to consider, that tree was in New Zealand, southern hemisphere, where things go the other way round to the northern hemisphere. (Google: water down a drain rotaion in southern hemisphere) Bet those scientists were from the northern hemisphere.
Coriolis effect only works on planetary scale. The effect on toilet swirl is a myth.
Toilets swirl whichever way the water wants to go based on the flushing conditions, shape of the bowl, "water memory". To test coriolis on a small scale, you need a large sink and a carefully controlled method of filling it. I haven't seen those experiments, but I'm sure they've been done a thousand times.
Sounds like a job for Marvel Comics Superhero
The character is a powerful mutant, one of a fictional subspecies of humanity born with superhuman abilities, who has the ability to generate and control magnetic fields.
Don't Forget his daughter Polaris (polar fields, get it?)
Stuff like this is why the myth persists...
BUT there are a few that try to set the record straight...
You should sync these two videos because it's kind of funny watching them that way...
But it doesn't need to be on a global scale to have an effect, The Coriolis effect is real and now you know...
Y2K, version II
If it happens, it happens. No amount of foreknowledge will prevent it, and until it happens no-one can say with any certainty what the effects and affects will be.
File with 'an asteroid impact is likely to occur eventually and wipe out all human life' scare stories.
I don't get much support when i complain of a world now totally dependent on computers suddenly rendered useless by unforseen circumstances as described in the OP.
Color me concerned....but still able to sleep at night.
Our communication and electrical grids are very fragile. The next nationwide threat is more likely to be a solar storm or EMP attack, than a nuke war. A good solar storm, and there'll be no groceries at the store and no power to the freezer. Water will stop flowing, emergency services will be stalled by over-demand ... nationwide.
You are absolutely right IMO.
And the experts who have studied the scenario say the result will be over 90 percent fatalities within the 1st year for the industrialized world.
The scare tactics of today pale in comparison to the ones when I was a kid. What do you think they did with the imminent threat of nuclear annihilation? When I was a kid, they kept having us duck under the desk to practice for the A-bomb going off! From the newsreels I had seen in those days, I figured the whole school was going to be incinerated! The Martians were definitely coming it was just a matter of time. TV preachers were warning every day dooms day was just around the corner, and we were waiting for the BIG ONE after the earthquake in '52. Sheesh this stuff they give you to worry about now is chickenfeed, as far as worrying goes.
Tube amps should be OK, so if you have a generator, you should be playing until the gas goes bad.
