Did you ever hear about the theory that when the sunspots on the Sun go nuts every 11 years that it has an effect on human culture? At one end of the cycle we, as a society are more manic, and at the other end we’re more mellow? And that at the zenith point of each there is an increase in creative activity that reflects the zeitgeist? It’s a fun theory, as far as theories go. Something to think about. Now enjoy a bunch of songs about the Sun.
