Okay, for those of you wondering, no: the earths magnetic field is not going to shut off, ending life on earth as it is bathed in violent solar radiation.
This nonsense is starting to go around the internet. We are aware that the magnetic poles of the earth wander quite a bit from year to year, and evidence shows at more than once in the past they have even dramatically changed position.
But this does not mean the core of the earth, which generates our magnetic field, will stop spinning instantly.
Unless you want us to make it stop. That we can do.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
