While doing research for my Achtung!Cthulhu campaign, regarding the past of a Czech player character, I stumbled into this:

The year is 1938 and a group of occultists have gathered somewhere in Czechoslovakia. As they chant, they form a circle within which a massive amount of energy is focused. Their aim is to channel this force into Adolf Hitler, physically harming him in the process and preventing a looming war between Czechoslovakia and the Third Reich over the disputed Sudetenland.
But the energy is too strong. One of the occultists gets scared and, as he flees, he breaks the circle channelling its energy into the initiator of the ritual, who would pay a terrible price for it. According to legend, this is why the Czechoslovak occult movement’s attempt to kill Hitler failed.

Wanted to be all excited about the first one, only to learn it's not actually habitable. Wanted to be quite frightened about the second one only to learn I'll long be space dust myself... heh. Perspective, it's a thing. TristramEvans TristramEvans

IIRC, the initial assumption was that red dwarf stars would eject vast stellar flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs) powerful enough to devastate nearby planets.

More recent observations have indicated that superflares from red dwarf stars are polar, ejecting the material away from the plane of its orbiting solar system. That's in contrast to our sun which ejects such material closer to its equator, across the path of the planets.

Still only a handful of observed events, but red-dwarf planets may be at least marginally less hellish than we had thought.

Which is nice.

Its "just" a Hercules beetle. All I can say is I'm super happy they don't chomp necks like it looks in the pic.

Actually from an ap news story about a composting biz in Columbia. But dang it looks they're chomping his neck and the larve is decently ick factored.
