It's cool. If the sun decides to sneeze and burn out planet to a crisp, we'll just Life Extend out way out of it!

Yes, that's a credible threat and we definitely have the (imaginary) technology to protect ourselves from a (non existent) threat. You wear your moniker well. Is it Pudding Sunday today? That why you're all excited? Gonna fire up the old General Products hull (cardboard box the fridge came in) and make space noises with your mouth? (While the nurses and entire psychiatric ward watch, powerless)

Whoo! I knew that'd work, just didn't know it'd work so fast.

The STEREO spacecraft is HI-FI. That means it has the highest quality fidelity. But they have it modified with the TK-421 which kicks it up another... three or four quads per channel.

Yeah, TK-421 works great, when it's at its post.

...then you likely don't have a clue what you're talking about.

No one with a clue insults themselves by claiming to be an audiophile.

How powerful was the flare on a scale of 1 to 11?
