I have a few friends who I love to death, but they just come up with the most illogical crazy things I've ever heard. I don't want to come off as an ass, a pedant, or a know-it-all, but I have to correct that ****. For example, there are several who believe the dairy industry is a giant conspiracy and that it is impossible to absorb calcium from milk. All I said was find me just one peer reviewed journal that supports these claims.
The craziest one I've heard is that when all the sunspots disappear that giant solar flares will burn up the earth. Okay, I've been an amateur radio operator for a while now, and I know a thing or two about sunspots. The sunspot cycle is an 11-year cycle of which we are just coming out of the lowest point. At times THIS YEAR there were zero sunspots.
I really have to know, are my friends taking crazy pills? Where does this crazy information come from? Have you heard any of these before?
