Get those long wave antennas ready
« on: February 11, 2018, 2308 UTC »
"Our star’s cool down would be the result of what astrophysicists call a “grand minimum,” a periodic event during which the Sun’s magnetism diminishes, sunspots form infrequently, and less ultraviolet radiation makes it to the surface of Earth. This last happened in the 17th century."

Keep the ammo dry. Global cooling could also possibly cause food shortages, and who knows what else.

Al looks pretty spiffy in that Tesla. They did tell him to park it on Mars, didn't they? Otherwise he'll go messing with those Moon Mice again and they'll come for our TV antenna's just like they did in 1962.

We were lucky the damage was confined to Frostbite Falls the last time around. If those Mice find their way south and find out about cable, it could be chaos!
