 Maunder Minimum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Maunder Minimum is the name given to the period roughly from 1645 to 1715 A.D., when sunspots became exceedingly rare, as noted by solar observers of the time.
The Maunder Minimum occurred between 1645 and 1715 when only about 50 spots appeared as opposed to the typical 40–50,000 spots.
The Maunder Minimum coincided with the middle — and coldest part — of the so-called Little Ice Age, during which Europe and North America, and perhaps much of the rest of the world, were subjected to bitterly cold winters.

 Universe Today - Are We Near the Solar Minimum? It Looks Like the Solar Max
Fri, 16 Sep 2005 - We should be near the beginning of the Sun's solar minimum period; the point on its 11-year cycle when there's usually very little activity on its surface.
Actually, solar minimum, the lowest point of the sun's 11-year activity cycle, isn't due until 2006, but forecasters expected 2005, the eve of solar minimum, to be a quiet year on the sun.
Hathaway offers a cautionary tale: Before 2005, the last solar minimum was due in 1996 and the sun, at the time, seemed to be behaving perfectly: From late-1992 until mid-1996, sunspots began to disappear and there were precisely zero X-flares during those long years.

 Minimum Legal Drinking Age Myth
The minimum legal drinking age myth was probably started by the misleading title of the federal legislation (Minimum Drinking Age Act of 1984) that required states to establish the minimum purchase age and the minimum public possession age at 21.

And many of the states that have established a minimum drinking age at 21 provide a variety of exception to that law.
