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.

durbnpoisn: Slaves2Darkness: ecmoRandomNumbers: Let me guess, it's going to "just miss us" at a distance of like 6 times the distance of the Moon.

*yawn*

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!

Yeah right, a married man getting laid 7 strait days.  Doubt it.  Probably has a better chance winning the lottery AND the asteroid hitting Earth.

durbnpoisn: xria: Zasteva: - 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the uncertainties decrease, asteroid 2003 QQ47 is likely to drop down the Torino scale."; so either the quote is months out of date, or the scientists are fully expecting it not to collide with earth.

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.

dittybopper: Nana's Vibrator: oK, line it up ladies.  This is your last chance to have crazy sex with me.  And as the structural wheels of society crumble around us leading to our chaotic demise, our sex will only get crazier.  Who's first?

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.

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.
