208. Why is a comparison to a refrigerator magnet silly?
Small magnets have a much stronger magnetic field.

The silly comparison, Omega, is the comparison of human beings to the power grid.

If human beings pulled thousands of volts over thousands of miles, then one would expect humans to be influence by very weak but very wide magnetic field fluctuations. But that ain't the case.

"is there any study on the effects of solar flares on humans"

There are studies on the effects of magnetic fields on humans, and that's what I linked to in the article.

Are you saying there's something special about the magnetic field that comes from solar flares, versus any other sort of magnet?
