follow-up on CMEs

Re: Tooth paste shelf life

How long will toothpaste last?

Re: Coronal Mass Ejections

CME's scare me but I can't figure out widespread on the Earth's surface they would be and if they would get the whole earth or just the side facing the CME at the time.

Re: great signage

My favorite is the lawyer, Sue Yoo.
