I don't know why but that reminds me of the Simpson's Halloween episode when Homer tries to fix the toaster and it turns into a time machine and he then proceeds to alter reality!

Thought to be a mighty cataclysm in a super-dense, highly magnetized star called a magnetar, it emitted as much energy in two-tenths of a second as the sun gives off in 250,000 years. Its intrinsic power was a thousand times greater than the power of all other stars in the galaxy put together, and ten thousand times brighter than the brightest supernova.
HOLY CARP!!!!!!!!!!!

And yes Damp..... one of my FAVORITE episodes! :D

Thanks for the article!

Sumthin' else, huh Sush? The article also mentioned that if that had happened within 10 light-years we probably would have been wiped out!

I love that episode too. "Lousy bug, you go squish now!"
