OtherLittleGuy: Mugato: Donnchadha: ust FYI .... the asteroid was determined not to be any threat at all back in 2003 shortly after initial discovery.

So we don't have to wake up Bruce Willis? He's napping now.

I still want to stuff Animal Crackers down Liv Tyler's pants.


I'd spend a night in her Casablanca.

I'd duck her soup.

Sybarite: Great, it had to wait until spring. Why couldn't it have hit when I had to start my car in the morning at -9, and I was just praying for death's sweet release.


heh.  same here.  only it was 29 below.

/as an aside, i used to make a 1,200 mile roadtrip every two weeks, driving straight thru for 600 miles one way.  i often pondered...if i knew that my trip would end in a fatal carcrash, would i want it to happen at the end, or the beginning?

Zasteva: Wow, that's some shiatty reporting right there.

- It was "first observed on August 24 by Lincoln Near Earth Asteroid Research Program (LINEAR), based in Socorro, New Mexico"; implying that it was discovered in Aug 2013. But the name, 2003 QQ47 shows that it was discovered in 2003.

- The article, posted on March 14th (today), warns of a possible collision on March 21, 2014 (a week from now). Yet it cites scientists saying "As additional observations are made over the coming months, and the uncertainties decrease, asteroid 2003 QQ47 is likely to drop down the Torino scale."; so either the quote is months out of date, or the scientists are fully expecting it not to collide with earth.

I actually feel less informed after reading that.


Well, what do you expect from a shiatty blog named "Live Free Live Natural", whose other greatest hits run the gamut of anti-GMO, anti-vax scarelore of the past 10 years.

The correct answer is "Yes, you would".

No it is going to pass between the Earth and the Moon. I call dibs on the Sorceress.

Consider what would happen if it HIT the moon.  If it didn't cause any damage, it would look pretty frikkin' awesome!  But if it broke the moon apart, we would be so completely screwed!

I have this bank account in Ethiopia that has $20M dollars in it. I want to spread this cash around the world so that it won't all be in one place when the asteroid hits. Would you be willing to give me your bank account information so that I can deposit some of the money in it. I will be forgiving you 2.5% for your effort trouble.

Yesterday I learned that Bill Gates III is my tenth cousin once removed (just like Cousin George the Firewood-Splitter). Today I learn a giant asteroid will strike on March 21. Coincidence. I think not.

If that asteroid breaks up and each piece hits a closer relation of Bill Gates than me, I'm in the money!

I'm only tens or at the most a few hundreds of thousands of people away from enormous wealth. In fact, there's lots of billionaires in my family tree. Mind you the lawyers will take the lion's share, but hey, a fellow can dream.

The odds of winning the jackpot are about the same with or without a ticket, as I always say about the Lotto 649. I just have to keep my eyes open and hope the winning ticket was accidentally dropped and didn't land in a mud puddle or slush.

Now, see, that's how you *DON'T* advertise, because you're saying the really good stuff is going to come later, so that gives them incentive to wait.

If you were a salesman, and you were selling widgets, would you tell your customers that a new and improved widget was due to be released soon?  Of course not, because that gives them a reason to not buy a widget *TODAY*.

That's exactly what you are doing, convincing the ladies to postpone the crazy sex because it'll be better later.

In fact, it's so low on the scale that NASA's NEO project hasn't even been monitoring it since then.

Yes, these.  As soon as I saw "2003 QQ47" I knew it wasn't something discovered in 2013.

Old news is so exciting?

Maybe the budget for asteroid tracking is so low, the new method of determining whether an asteroid is going to hit is to wait until a couple of months after it is due to hit, and then look outside - if the sky is still thick with ejecta and there is 30ft of snow over a land scoured by a giant tsunami and firestorm, then it means the asteroid was on a collision course.

You make an interesting point about the current budget being very low for asteroid tracking.  But exactly what would you propose be done about it?  First of all, there isn't a budget in this world large enough to fund finding every single rock that might be headed our way.  There are just WAY too many of them.  And secondly, even if we KNEW an asteroid were going to hit, we couldn't do a damn thing about it anyway

Well, we could go down into the basement.

/ Trailer park residents have no basements, they're doomed. Just like tornadoes seeking them out, the asteroid will aim straight for them.
