Also... too flappy and she's got one of those corn fed derp faces. Do not want.
Horatio Noseblower: "2014 BR57 will pass closer yet at 4.4 times the moon's distance on Thursday. "What will happen when BR-549 comes?
indarwinsshadow: 2 million miles subby? That's not a "near miss" by any stretch of the imagination. Inflated headlines suck.

durbnpoisn: Peki: RoxtarRyan: indarwinsshadow: 2 million miles subby? That's not a "near miss" by any stretch of the imagination. Inflated headlines suck.So be fair, subby didn't create the definition of "near miss". I agree though, something that is 8 times the distance from the earth that the moon is shouldn't be considered a "near miss".Yeah, but to people who measure distances in terms of AU and lightyears, 2.1 million miles is incredibly close. Also, seems like the aliens' aim is getting better, since the next one is supposed to be only a million out.This so makes me think of Starship Troopers. Fun movie to watch, but there is no science to that science fiction whatsoever. The attack that set the humans over the edge and decide to attack the bugs... It was caused by a bug, on a distant planet, in another system altogether, hurling some bug plasma at an asteroid in OUR system, and causing it to plumet to Earth, killing millions.There is pretty much nothing in physics that says:1. Any creature could possibly have such incredibly good aim, especially considering they lack any and all technology. How the hell did they even know where our planet was?2. A ball of plasma could travel hundreds, if not thousands of light years in such a short period of time.
