For all those here begging for something to "end it".... well, I 'm sure there's a bridge or tall building nearby you use.

Why wait?   Be the change you want to see in the world.

Just what we need another empty stadium.

Weirdly Fox40 is not the most conservative propaganda local news anymore. That dishonor now goes to CBS13; 90 solid minutes of News For Scared Karens and Concerned Chads of the extremely white foothill enclaves. The comes Colbert. It's quite the clash.

/ Off-topic but Fox40 is the source so had to chime in.
// local.

Nothing, except I don't wish for the mass extermination of people.

Yet, you are positioning ME as the weirdo...

3,000,000 miles, but I heard an even bigger rock was within 250,000 miles!!!

"1,100 feet wide, approximately the size of a football stadium"

How large is that in washing machines?

You fail to understand the point
This isn't about anyone's desire to personally die

It's a statement that nothing of value would be lost if all of humanity, or at least civilization were wiped out

Time for the universe to hit the reset button on earths current dominant specie

And if you stop and think that the first dominant specie were microbes and bacteria, then fish and plants, then dinosaurs, then man. So it only follows that whatever comes next would likely be a big step up the evolutionary ladder

So it's actually a net positive. Don't be so hung up on hairless ape descendants

You think you are going to get a heads up when the extinction class meteor is headed in?
 
2020-06-03 4:07:03 PM  
If it does happen to hit, I just hope Trump will order the National Guard to bomb it with tear gas.

As long as it goes "whooooooooo" on its way through the atmosphere I'll be happy

Stadium-sized asteroid?  The correct comparison for the unwashed masses is football fields.  FFS Fox can't even get that right.
 
2020-06-03 4:17:47 PM  
Let's not get too worked up just yet.  The article just said "stadium-sized meteor" -- that could mean a lot of things.   I mean, are we talking about the Azteca stadium in Mexico City that can hold close to 90,000 people? or, like the one the Chargers use where you can have a conversation with the players if you want to?
 
2020-06-03 4:23:42 PM  
can't we just have the scientists use a computer model to tell us where it's going to hit and then have the goverment move everyone from there, to someplace else?

easy peasy, mac and cheesy.

At this point I'm pretty sure the rapture has already happened. The good and the faithful have been taken, and we are what remains.

Imagine for a moment that the universe actually is just and fair. And you actually are getting everything you deserve.
 
2020-06-03 4:33:39 PM  
Come on over and hit us!

Even Giant Meteor is eager to end the misery ASAP.

So are we talking MetLife Stadium-sized? Or just Soldier Field?

LOL.
I'm not going to do suicide buddy.
But, humanity, in general, isn't needed. We're a cancer on this rock.
Nothing would be lost if it go dinosaur.
Sure on a personal level it would be tragic and horrific.
But that isn't mean very much of anything outside of your fee Fee's.

lolmao500: Yeah you gonna need to be way closer than that and way bigger.


Well, its big enough to wipe a city off the map, or cause a good sized tsunami, and cause a good deal to economic distruption.

But ya...  10x the distance to the moon isn't exactly a near miss, even by the standards of the solar system.

I don't know man, telling people to kill themselves seems kind of messed up.
But, society getting done the way it does every living thing is different.

That is what I think every time someone brings up karma.

If they are calling for my death, I can call for theirs.    No obtuseness or dickishness required.

Stop reporting on crap like this media...unless it gets WITHIN the distance of the Earth & Moon
(around 240,000 miles).  This one is THREE MILLION.
 
2020-06-03 7:17:00 PM  

Evil Twin Skippy: Meh... 3 million miles?


If my math is close to approximately correct, we will miss the meteor by about 43 minutes (and a disappearing series of apparently non-repeating decimals) off starboard bow.

Please feel free to correct me on this, though.
