The sun periodically vomits superheated plasma at us, knocking down satellites and peppering airline passengers with gamma rays they didn’t order.
On the whole, perhaps it’s better just to stay on Earth, especially since now we don’t have to worry about bird flu anymore. Or so we hear from Korea, where scientists fed kimchee to 13 flu-stricken chickens…and 11 of them got better!
Here at surf.bird.scribble, we’re not above bending a news opportunity into a four-way shout-out: For giving us solar radiation to think about, Mike Carlowicz. For supplying yet another reason to eat kimchee at breakfast, those discerning fashion geeks at Inkycircus. For checking the way I spelled kimchee, my amazing girlfriend, Mea Cook. And to take our minds off space radiation and bird flu while we enjoy our spiced cabbage, the crisp Alaskan photography of Charles Eldermire.
Thanks guys! Back soon with more news…
