NASA confirms the world was almost knocked back to the 18th century

On July 23, 2012, two giant plasma clouds, known as coronal mass ejections (CMEs) erupted from the sun creating an epic solar storm. As luck would have it, the CMEs weren’t directed at the Earth, but if it had happened one week earlier the point of eruption would have been Earth-facing and would have resulted in trillions of dollars of damage to the planet, mostly due to the widespread blackouts, damage to satellites and general interruption of and damage to various electrical systems on Earth.

THAT WAY YOU GET ACCESS TO THE Z TRIGGER, JOYSTICK, C BUTTONS, R BUTTON, A, B, AND START

THAT IS HOW LITERALLY EVERY N64 GAME I’VE EVER PLAYED WAS DESIGNED, SO THAT THOSE WERE THE ONLY BUTTONS YOU WOULD REALLY NEED, AND THE D PAD GENERALLY MIMICKED THE C BUTTONS WHILE THE L BUTTON MIMICKED THE R
