OMG. Is it the end of the world? Is everyone we love and care about soon to be incinerated by a massive radioactive blast from the sun? Will my iPhone still work?

This image, take by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, is actually a mid-level M-class flare, and one of several that have occurred in the same spot over the past few days. They are harmless and can't pass through the atmosphere, according to NASA, but stronger flares have been known to affect GPS and communications on Earth.

There was a streak of more intense X-class flares during the last week of October, which the Space Weather Prediction Center is calling "one for the history books."

This Shiba Inu pup tries to test the water in his backyard pool and reacts by barking and pawing at the uncontrollable manmade waves.

This is why the dog takeover will never happen. They don't even understand the mechanics that people can only go down a slide, not up. Still, with a face like that, the human race will probably just surrender to a canine regime based on cuteness alone.

Nothing can celebrate the person who birthed you into this world by donning some appropriately embarrassing outfit and taking her out to Olive Garden. However, for this pup, he might be better trying to sail on through the day without notice.
