Facebook uses AIs on their website, so they don't want people freaking out about it. Not only that, Zuck is looking at the short term effects, while Musk is looking at the long term effects. Reddit comment thread about it:

Just found the link. Looks like it is a mashup of this post and another one. Or this post and the other only show parts of the story. Interesting discussion in the comments though.

Someone posted something like this to Reddit a little while ago, but it ended unexpectedly with the mouse eating the snake.

I'm with @kamatsu. Tali'Zorah is my favorite by a few light years. Followed by Garrus and Legion neck to neck. My experience with the Quariens and Geth when I get around to playing ME3 will be most interesting.

Okay, maybe not kill, but we could be a few months without internet as the satellites are replaced so it might as well.

This was considered a very small scale impact, and NASA and other agencies estimate that there is a 12% chance of us being hit by one in the next 10 years (as of 2012). After one narrowly missed us.
https://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2014/23jul_superstorm/
If one were to hit today it would fry many electronics, even some that are not connected to a grid in any way, and cause widespread damage worldwide.
Fun things like "destroy satellites" and "set power stations and lines on fire."
Estimated rebuild time is 10 years +.
On the bright side (heh, pun) it looks really cool under thermal and solar intensity models: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/transcoded/0/0a/Comparing_CMEs.ogv/Comparing_CMEs.ogv.480p.webm

I love these things, because they're one of the most likely ways to kill us and there's nothing we can do about it. It wouldn't end the world, but it would definitely feel like it.

At this point the electric industry was only just budding, with only few power or transmission lines in major areas but the impact of the CME was enough to cause the (very weak) lines to spark violently, electrocute operators and some even reported "telegraph operators could continue to send and receive messages despite having disconnected their power supplies."

So there's this thing called a coronal mass ejection (or CME) that the Sun sometimes does which is a rather intense version of a Solar flare. It has this fun little habit of overloading electronics.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coronal_mass_ejection#Physical_properties
It also bathes the Earth in radiation and other fun things, especially if you are at a high altitude. Like a big mountain, or a plane. Or the ISS.

Only one major one has been recorded to hit the planet directly, famously known as the Carrington event in 1859.

Hate to burst the bubble, but this is not Australian. This photo was taken at an annual multicultural festival and was part of a traditional Swedish/Finnish/Norwedish/something-up-there culture.

AoT wiki says 15 (850) & 19 (854).
Levi's age is not specifically known, it just says Early 30s (850) & 30s (854).
I haven't seen enough to know which time jump this refers to.

Something tells me it won't look like the picture.
Something else tells me it will look a lot like Elite: Dangerous planets.
