1) Figure out where they are and which ones are going to hit us
2) Go to them long before they're going to hit us and turn them out of our path
  a) put a massive ship with a little maneuvering ability right next to it and let gravity do the work
  b) to save money, get that mass by sending up a light/empty ship and scoop up some of the shiat that's already in orbit but dead

Wait, shouldn't Uranus have a dark ring around it?

Step 1. Catch asteroid
Step 2. Figure out how it on someone or someplace you don't like

/Step 3. Profit?

Why? You'll just make more, smaller, harder-to-hit asteroids that way, and they'll just kill you when they loop to the other side of the screen.

Give me a paddle controller, a 2 liter of diet Shasta, and my all-Rush mix tape and it's on like Donkey Kong.

Redirect all incoming asteroids away from the earth. Fallback plan if earth avoidance doesn't work: redirect to red states as they will be able to pray away the damage better then heathen blue staters.

Move earth into inter-galactic space.

That should at least cut the asteroid danger down substantially.

Did you only pay for a BJ or was it a full service then? Also, how many legs did 'she' have, two or four? ...Come on, the Internet needs to know the details.

Use the Holy materia to counter Sephiroth's use of the Meteor materia?

We've got plenty of nuclear warheads.

Haven't used any in a long time..

1. Better detection.
2. Spray painting satellites.

It really is that easy, paint the farker far enough out and the course changes, not because of the weight of the paint, but because of the photons bouncing off of it instead of being absorbed by it...

alternately

3. Small ion-thrust engine on a really durable (and sticky) lander.

No worries. Samantha Carter will just take Earth out of phase for a minute.

Ha ha, the headline is calling out Quantum Apostrophe.
