Ever heard of geomagnetic reversal? Yeah, me neither. I'm not sure how we got on the subject here in the office but this paragraph is a tad worrisome:
The Earth's magnetic north pole is drifting from northern Canada towards Siberia with a presently accelerating rate -- 10km per year at the beginning of the 20th century, up to 40km per year in 2003. It is also unknown if this drift will continue to accelerate.
Now, that's just weird. I guess I'll have to ask Jack about this one since he's the smartest person I know. However, I either won't understand his explanation or he's going to scare the crap out of me. Either way, I do love to hear him talk smart.
