My cousin views GLP, too. He and I talked on the phone last night and he checked his compass. It was normal.

Tonight, we talked, he checked his compass, it was about 30 degrees out of true. He's utterly baffled by it. We'd both assumed that this was a bs thread, but are now fearing that it's not.

Apologies!

We have many posters who claimed the same, they too thought initially it was all a hoax but then got the off readings. Also I do think people should observe their compasses from time to time as some people have claimed the readings fluctuate.

On my way out I saw two dead birds, one was hanging upside down from one leg from a tree limb and the other was just splayed out on the ground. Mandy


Are you for real?

What kind of birds?

Where are you?

Ahahahahahahah riiiiiiiiigggggghhhht......


I really did... I promise, it was sad and hilarious all at the same time. The poor birdie looks like he just was hanging out and had a stroke or something. I HAVE A PICTURE OF IT. :( Can you post a picture to Youtube????? I have several. They are just really far away. Now you guys are gonna make me go back and take a close up! I was actually kinda worried that people in the parking lot were gonna think I was up to no good. I already looked like an idiot staring up into a tree!

Post it to a photo dump account. And do a close up:)


I know it is far away, but here ya go. :) He was so sad looking, just hanging there.

Very good point. I was doing a science project in high school and got my finger caught between 2 neodymium magnets when they flipped. It was fast and painful. Took a friend to get them apart because I couldn't separate them with one hand.

Yikes. Hope the pole reversal isn't that fast.

Is anyone here a pilot? The reason I ask is about 10 days ago we had company come in from London. We are in Georgia. The entire time the flight was listed as on time/on schedule. No weather issues, etc. The staff said perplexed that it was listed as being on time - that was correct. However it didn't find it's way to the airport until nearly 1 1/2 hours after expected. Anyone else?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 812359

If "giant cloaked ships" were hovering/travelling around, and if they produced electromagnetic anomalies in the vicinity of their passage, this might account for some compasses reading normal in some areas/times while not reading normal in other areas/times.

30 degrees out, when the compass is in the same environment on the same table, and nothing has been added to the environment such as a woodstove or magnets that might alter the compass' heading, is disturbingly odd.

This is really anoying, same article posted 100 times, but the clue is not solved yet is it?
They state that they have to redraw the inroute pointers because of the pole have shifted 40 miles or km every year since 1900's, makes no sence?
Unless it suddenly shifted lets say 5-10 degrees(in a matter of days/month) as some have stated looking at compasses

WTF? 40km every year and now its more or what?
WAHT!!???
That article is stinky
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1214331


Why is the north magnetic pole racing toward Siberia?

But the NMP drifts from year to year as geophysical processes within Earth change. For more than 150 years after Ross's measurement its movement was gradual, generally less than 15 kilometers per year. But then, in the 1990s, it picked up speed in a big way, bolting north–northwest into the Arctic Ocean at more than 55 kilometers per year.

"The complete disappearance of the woolly mammoths and other animals that thrived during the Ice Age is a major mystery of paleontology. Based on the carcasses and the state of preservation of the stomach food, a quick freeze appears reasonable.

Many theorists have advocated a quick freeze to account for the frozen mammoths and other animals in Siberia, as well as the lowlands of Alaska and the Yukon. The quick-freeze hypothesis is an old idea, developed by scientists in the late 19th century. Birds Eye Frozen Foods Company ran an experiment based on heat conduction and the state of preservation of the stomach contents. They concluded that the atmospheric temperature had to quickly fall below –150°F (–100°C)."

OK I just tried this also --don't know if I did this right. But I got a powerful small magnet off the fridge and rubbed it on the eye portion of a needle. Put a small piece of paper in a bowl of water and then put the needle on the paper. The eye of the needle moved and is facing south. I live on a North / South street. So did I do that correctly?


Yes, good job. Another trick with a small needle is just to rub some oil from your nose on it and it will float on the water, no paper or cork needed.

You don't know which end of your needle points N or S though, just that it is lined up with the current magnetic field.

Thanks that was easy. The eye needle moved and is pointing south --not north. I am in Utah
 Quoting: B4DAWN

Boy this thread has grown since last night. My hubby spotted my compass needle in the water bowl and asked--"What is that about?" So today he went and found a compass. He said he asked the girl if there was one that was not made in China---and she laughed. THIS NEW ONE IS MADE IN CHINA. NO OTHERS OFFERED. So now we have a compass and it is pointing direct North.

Well YAY! You have a real compass! The one I'm using I've had for many years, very accurate, made in Taiwan. :-)

The magnetic declination line of 10* West runs N-S through the middle of Utah so your compass should be pointing between 9 and 11 degrees NNE of true North.

IOW, true North should be a little to the left of where the compass needle is pointing.

Well i guess those of us who experienced fluctuations in compass readings are now being backed up by science and the news:

By The Tampa Tribune
Tampa Bay Online Tampa Bay Online
updated 1/5/2011 7:17:53 PM ET 2011-01-06T00:17:53
Share Print Font: +-TAMPA — Scientists say the magnetic north pole is moving toward Russia and the fallout has reached -- of all places -- Tampa International Airport.

The airport has closed its primary runway until Jan. 13 to repaint the numeric designators at each end and change taxiway signage to account for the shift in location of the Earth's magnetic north.

The closure of the west parallel runway will result in more activity on the east parallel runway and more noise for residential areas of south Tampa.

Thought this was interesting information as well:

Some say the World will end in a bang; others say the Earth will die in a whisper."

The planet that we live on is dependently grateful for the living light of its only sun.

But this light that gives us life will soon turn against us.

A planetary magnetic pole shift, episodic, less stable, is in the works, already forming new magnetic realignments on this Earth.

Rather than South becoming North in a flash, a total pole reversal of magnetic North and South which happens every 5,000 years can fully shift in as few as five years.

Pockets of migrating magnetic South areas and pockets of migrating magnetic North areas drift towards each other's pole with force field pockets of North and South schematically looking like huge jellyfish.

This unspoken and under announced shift poses an unseen and treacherous threat for our planet's life.

With that shift now in transit the real danger exists that Earth will be exposed to solar flares; we may see the extinction of many animal and some plant life species on Earth, lost to slow radiation poisoning.

Unlike our nebulous plans for vectoring away an asteroid's arrival on Earth with space effort technologies, there is precious little that we can do to avert this impending planetary disaster, so the threat stays a secret.

Besides, aren't we much too concerned with terrorism and financial conundrums right now to worry our heads about North and South!?

The Earth's magnetic field is the shield that protects this planet from our sun's deadly solar flares and from lethal space and supernovae radiations.

The colors of the auroras in the skies at poles ends are the visible interaction between these two forces.

As the Earth's magnetic field confronts the sun's flare radiations, the Earth protects us; our sky's dark night shades become luminescent colors in Auroras Borealis that ebb and wane in a gorgeous visual electrical magnetic display of that protection.

But the signs of polar shifting already in the works are now showing some clearer signs of the impending danger to us.
