We're all doomed, I say. DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMED!!!

Oh great. I was on the road then and didn't even hear about this until after 6:20. So don't keep me in suspense, did we make it?

I'm impressed that they can detect something that small.

Came for the Thundarr reference. Leaving happy.

For those of us who care, that's 6:20pm (1820).

The Compton was probably more dangerous on reentry.

Even if it were aimed directly at our planet, the newly discovered space rock is so small that it would likely burn up in the atmosphere before it could hit the ground.

It'll end up no bigger than the head of a chihuahua.

Nothing to worry about.  It would burn up inEarth's atmosphere and fall to earth as a rock no bigger than a Chihuahua's head.

Either that or...

It's too small to have a lander with astronauts land on it and set it to blow up! We're doomed!

This was a really crappy time to shut down the space fence.

That being said, I wouldn't worry about that lil' guy.

ISON and Lovejoy, on the other hand, people should be very concerned about.  Lord knows I'm girding myself for them.

A mutant SyFy Channel chihuahua? Because that's one animal they haven't tried yet...

Yeah but that was the meteor we didn't notice.

So basically, look everywhere except for where this new thing is, just to be safe.
