I know it's supposed to be funny but where exactly does Adele fit into this ?
Oh I know it's a asteroid the size of your mamma

I looked at a friend (gal from Poland) who says pretty much the same thing. In her words: "She can sing well, and has money now. Why is she so fat?"

Yeah, I don't get this whole "Adele is the fattest person to walk the planet" shiat. She's overweight, sure, but holy Christ, people need to get some perspective, she's not THAT heavy, yet some asshole's always making her sound like she's giving Honey Boo-Boo's mom a run for her money or something. I remember the days when it was the chick from Wilson Philips who was the fat one, at least that made sense... I just don't understand why this Adele chick is the focus of everyone's scorn. Is she a bad singer or something?

Might be a titch of the Skyfall theme thing too,  other that this wasn't even a little close 2.5x the distance to the moon...
And to the size yahoos "big as a football field" sucks as measurement of a three dementional object. Big as a football stadium makes more sense, and in this case, is more accurate dimensionally too.

Never considered farking an asteroid before. Guess there's a first time for everything.

She's about actual content over image.

She even said something to the effect of "I make music for ears, not eyes."

So, there's that.  More power to her.

In weightlifting, I don't think sudden, uncontrolled urination should automatically disqualify you.

Some wonderful reporting there:

Earthlings have been especially excited about space bodies as of late, after the planet was hit by a huge meteorite last month.

"Huge"???  We got hit by a pebble that blew up well up in the stratosphere.  Now, if you want huge look at C/2013 A1 (Siding Spring).  At the low end of it's size estimate it still packs a bigger punch than the dinosaur killer and at the high end it could sterilize a planet.  It's also on a possible impact trajectory--fortunately a hit will only cost us Curiosity & Opportunity and probably their attendant communications satellites.

have any of you jaggoffs ever managed to get a bag of antlers "hottie"? Cuz I gotta tell you that the overall effect can kinda be uncomfortable. forget about sharp knees, I'm talking sharp hips!

I'll take average body shape, maybe a little plump any day of the week.

there is nothing wrong with Ms. Adele.

also.. she has a great deal of personal wealth, and I for one would be quite honored to let her buy me stuff.

She sounds great, has a very good band, looks great (if you are so inclined, good otherwise)... But damn it girl, learn how to write lyrics!

*snert*

I'll be interested to see how she changes things up for her next album.  21 was a breakup album, and I don't think she should try to keep getting mileage out of breakup material.

A case of the ol' "we'll have to wait and see," I guess.
 
2013-03-09 08:29:04 PM  
At least she doesn't have coonty gym face.

Woo asteroid.
 
2013-03-09 08:33:11 PM  
Suddenly the skies are filled with asteroids, and the airwaves with singers who are not gaunt hatracks with tits and lips.

Clearly, the earth is coming to an end.

So very true.  Adele, Taylor Swift is not the model you are looking for...

That comet will probably cost us every Mars asset we have right now, even if it doesn't impact. It's going to brush so close that the coma will envelop the planet, it'll be like orbiting through a shotgun blast.

A direct hit on Mars would not only be something to see, but it would make a nice wake up call to properly fund NASA so they can start the planned asteroid rendezvous missions. I'm really glad those are prioritized over going back to the Moon, since they would basically be a dress rehearsal for a deflection mission.

Because fark you you stringy polish tart? It must really eat the shiat out of the worlds vast population of 'I'm thin and my hair is dyed blonde so why do people still not respect or even want me?' bimbos that the world actually finds this girl, who you would expect to sneer at, both talented, interesting AND sexy.

Asteroid kinda suggests anal on the first date.

Also, 2.5 lunar distances? Pffft. Alert me when a GPS satellite is plowed by one of these chunks of pureed driveway. A miss is as good as a mile.

Orbiting through a shotgun blast would be completely safe.

The tail is expected to be pointing away from Mars with a 0.08% chance of hitting it. It may mess with the orbits of the comm sat's that are relaying information from the rovers but the good money bet would be that nothing of consequence is going to happen outside of some pretty spectacular images as it passes by.

Don't worry. When an asteroid hits the atmosphere it usually crumbows.
