    lol we cant have a screwed up GPS system sending your flight to Antarctica instead of its planned destination huh that just wouldnt be fair !! ;)

    I was playing a video from the SOHO www site earlier today, it was a sight to see the blast of charged particles hitting the sensors on the SOHO spacecraft
