I'd it it.
2003-05-28 09:21:46 AM  
I can see it now. I have my head frozen, and I get brought back to life in 2879.

In other news, scientists revise their calculations after taking into account disparity with the metric system, indicating that the asteroid will hit the earth in eight years, not eight hundred years.

Must have been an Aussie scientist..."Crikey! An esteroid is gonna 'it the Earth!"

Me: I love the way newspapers just blithely report that a massive asteroid impact wiped out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago, as if that was established fact, and not a theory backed by support.

Newspapers: Oh yeah? Well I just love the way when you make a sandwich, and you finish putting the mayonnaise on, you just have to go ahead and lick the knife. Yeah, that's f*cking great. Just one of the many things about you that annoy me, so let's not get started on this right now, okay? Let's just go to sleep and forget this whole fight ever happened.

Me: Whatever, ass.

Newspapers: B*tch.

Eh, in 2880 any child past teething will be able to lasso the thing and use it to provide resources for Fun Fest 2880.
2003-05-28 11:13:11 AM  
I hate things that it Earth...
2003-05-28 11:14:00 AM  
Well I'm leaving on a jet plane. I don't know when I'll be back again.

Crap. And I just bought a boat...
2003-05-28 11:14:54 AM  
Time to reuse the comment that fits any Slashdot story...

This is not new!
2003-05-28 11:15:17 AM  
Cant we send a triangle shaped ship out there to shoot it?

On second thought...Bah!..who cares...I'll be dead.
2003-05-28 11:15:36 AM  
Atleast humans don't have to worry about it. It's not like humanity will last that long.
2003-05-28 11:15:48 AM  
Ever heard of Evel Knievel?

No, I never watched Star Wars...
2003-05-28 11:15:59 AM  
as long as Bruce Willis leaves... now.

But Liv Tyler can stay.

Hello? Spelling, grammar? Anybody? Beuller?
2003-05-28 11:16:47 AM  
But will it kill Bob Hope?
2003-05-28 11:17:36 AM  
I'll get my raincoat.

Looks like Florida, North Carolina and Nova Scotia get hammered by the extreme height of that tsunami. I was hoping the animation would show estimates of how far the water would travel inland.
2003-05-28 11:18:56 AM  
2 links in a row with misspelled words. Is this a record?
2003-05-28 11:19:03 AM  
...immortal surfers rejoice.
2003-05-28 11:19:50 AM  
Nice spell checking, mods.

Seriously, WTF mods.
2003-05-28 11:20:41 AM  
Har har har har har har har har har. Thats actually kinda funny..
2003-05-28 11:21:25 AM  
hahaha, admins changed filters, mods pay with filtered headlines, or maybe it's the other way around. H$I^T as in I'd ____ it! has joined First p(0)st in filter hell.

Will Aerosmith do the Soundtrack again ? I'm sure Steven Tyler will not be going anywhere.

I'd like the spawn of Liv Tyler in that movie as well. If the kids father is still Affleck though, the kid will be a bland, balding person who loves taco-flavored kisses. Hope Liv divorces him.

2003-05-28 11:21:37 AM  

oh wait...
2003-05-28 11:21:38 AM  
I'm sure it will burn up in our atmosphere and be no larger than a chihuahua's head

Hello? Spelling, grammar? Anybody? Beuller?

Dude, it's Bueller.

(couldn't resist)
2003-05-28 11:23:19 AM  
Big. Effing. Deal.
2003-05-28 11:23:25 AM  
Wuzupperson -

That was intentional bro. You are damned observant.

And LarsThorwald wins the Foscar (Fark Oscar for the hungover) for best original comedy writing in a comment thread.
2003-05-28 11:24:29 AM  
Maybe Sean Connery will shoot it with nukes.
2003-05-28 11:24:34 AM  
Sorry, it's just that I've watched that movie about a zillion times... :-)
2003-05-28 11:24:35 AM  
If we are facing an extinction level event with no hope of survival I vote we all start fighting wars like mad. Wait, is there an extinction level event out there and no one is telling us?/?

My first rape and plunder operation will be to locate the Aerosmith tour bus and grab that Tyler chick.
2003-05-28 11:25:47 AM  
The grammar actually works if you say it with an Aussie accent.
2003-05-28 11:26:53 AM  

No apology necessary - you got the joke I was going for.
BTW- GREAT movie
2003-05-28 11:27:14 AM  
Ill give anyone teo Foscars if they can tell me where Lars got his name from....

2003-05-28 11:27:51 AM  
Oh, I've wasted my life..

2003-05-28 11:28:06 AM  

You can have Liv Tyler when you pry her from my cold, dead ... hands.
2003-05-28 11:28:17 AM  
Worst. Asteroid. Ever.
2003-05-28 11:29:17 AM  

Don't worry Liv I'll save you, and we can repopulate the earth and wash cars together !

The Oracle informs me that it's from Rear Window.

Do I get my Foscars?
2003-05-28 11:30:33 AM  
Was I apologizing??? :-) Yeah, I totally got teh joek.

Wasn't there some really kick-ass story about an asteroid killing us all in 2014?
2003-05-28 11:30:43 AM  
Hopefully none of the scientists come from Biglerville and it's actually going to hit in 2080.
2003-05-28 11:31:21 AM  
Looks like the submitter speaks Cockney.
2003-05-28 11:31:31 AM  
You mean "I'd hit it" doesn't work anymore?
2003-05-28 11:31:39 AM  
Skinink: You magnificent bastard!
2003-05-28 11:31:45 AM  
Ummmm.....ok so there's a 0.3% chance that a small asteroid may hit in 800 years... and I care about this why???
2003-05-28 11:31:52 AM  
eh... trivial knowledge has been replaced by the Great Goog.
2003-05-28 11:34:00 AM  
NO my seed must go on for at least 1000 years to fulfill the prophecy!

But first I'd better find someone to impregnante.
