The sun's cycle is 11 years.
The earth's cycle is 250,000 years.
It could be 11/250,000 but that's not right.
The last major event having to do with reversal was in 1859; 150 years ago.
I'm glad to know that these ``cold snaps'' are based on both the Sun's and the Earth's magnetic cycles - even though the periodicity of ``cold snaps'' is not a common divisor of either.
But wait! 150 / 11 = 13.64, and everyone knows 13 is an unlucky number! Further, 250 000 / 150 = 1666.666, the evil number 666!
Obviously by the rules of numerology you are onto something.
