I thought we were all going to die in 2012 (pops). Make up your minds, people, so I know when to start going through my list of Things to Do Before We All Die. And yes, some items involve midgets.

Did the Russians mention anything about it raping us?

They're Russian scientists. When's the last time anything good came out of Russia?

That's right. Never.

According to him, in 2028 the asteroid's orbit will change significantly in 2028, as it approaches the Earth.

Wow. Great writing.

It'll crumble in the atmosphere and become no larger then the head of a chihuaha.

If I live to see it I will be 65 y/o. That's a decent run.
Sucks for the folks that have something to live for though.

Cool. I don't have to worry about the damage my XJ and Tahoe do then?

heh.

Oh, it's only 1000m. I'm retty sure this wouldn't be a global extinction event, so I'll just hope it hits Iran.

We had 2 Chinese exchange students and they were both over 7 feet tall. Not sure what was going on there.

Sometime in the 20th Century, the Chinese stopped being malnourished people who ate nothing but white rice and started getting some protien in their diets.

At least it didn't say "in 2028 the asteroid's orbit will change significantly in 2026."

What do we do? We drill!

Ahh what do I care I'll be 67. If I'm going out I want the planet to go with me.

the only thing i want to know is which political party will save me from this. i will vote for them immediately and so will my cat.
 
2006-10-20 12:45:30 PM
I hope Bruce Willis isn't dead by then. He's the only one who can save us.

On a long enough timeline the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.
 
2006-10-20 12:45:39 PM
Big deal. It'll burn up in atmosphere and whatever's left will be no bigger than a Chihuahua's head.

If it were a real threat, we'd know. Jon Titor says we'll have time travel by then, so somebody would have come back to warn us.

Yeah, I'm with a couple other people here-- I'll be 58, which is a good run. Plus, if they tell us in 2028 it'll happen, then I'll be 51, which should leave me time to have fun while I'm still able to be pretty active. My family ages well physically, but starts getting a little batty early-ish, so I might as well get squashed by an asteroid while out living it up in my late 50's still in my right mind.

Given a choice, I'd still prefer to die in my sleep at an addled 98 or so, but the asteroid doesn't seem that bad.

Don't worry, my son will save us all.

He's starting small, with wooden blocks, colouring outside the lines, telling me what horsies say and counting to ten, but at 23 months he's already well on his way to being the world's smartest man.

He'll save us all, and I'll bet it will be something really cool to watch, too. And you can all get in line with the rest of the world, every man, woman and child awaiting their turn to personally thank me for having sex with my wife on that particular night.

In case I'm too busy to be polite when that time comes, please accept this very gracious "you're welcome" in advance.

I wonder what life will be like the 6 months before something like that happens?

Imagine all the free farking going on?

Did it mention if the asteroid was made of red pubes?
 
2006-10-20 12:53:38 PM
Stupid Russians. Asteroids are made out of the same cheese the moon is. Morans.
 
2006-10-20 12:53:38 PM
I have it from a trusted authority that the comet will not hit us, but narrowly miss, inducing mass, zombie-like cannibalism through radiation.
 
2006-10-20 12:53:58 PM
The answer: invade it!

Seriously, if its coming close enough to us that we are gonna get hit by it, we may as well get to it first, put a little english on the right nudge, and give ourselves a new place to put all the polutey/nukey stuff ..

Shouldn't cost more than a couple million to do it. Especially if the future of humanity is on the line; people won't over-charge for the goods & services required.

Hell, I volunteer to plant the flag for free, even ..
