    I do believe I predicted this.

    But I also predicted that NASA crashed the NEAR probe into a comet for the same reason. That Comet will also be swinging VERY close to us.

    This article doesn't name the asteroid, and I believe they are actually referring to the Tempel comet.

    NASA's thinly veiled experiment to 'View the inside of a comet" was actually a test to see if they could destroy it, without causing global panic.

    They failed.

    If they had succeeded, They would have told us so.

    I can't wait. But you know what I can't wait for even more ? AVIAN FLU. They say that 100,000s of Americans can be killed by it.

    I'm gonna be 53 when we all die from suffocation and extreme temperatures.

    At least I'll have had my midlife crisis and a Corvette for a short period by then.

    I'm just going to buy property as far inland as possible and pray the tsunami doesn't touch me. I don't care if everyone else is dead, as long as I'm still ticking I'm happy. I, of all people, could handle surviving on my own.

    yea but if it hits land you're gonna have to deal with dust covering the sky, so if you are above ground you might be screwed.

    No Offense. Hey, while we're getting the compliments out of the way, how about you kill yourself too ?


    Truth be told: I am craving to see what happens next. Remember this line from Private Parts:

    "The average Fan of Howard's program listens for 15 minutes. The reason: They want to hear what he says next"
    "The average Hater of Howard's program listens for 45 minutes. The Reason: The want to hear what he says next"


    I'm the same way with the human condition. I am so intent on it, because I want to destroy it. I view the end (like a hundred thousand deaths from a flu) not as a problem, but as a solution. I think when we cut down the population, we will begin to hold each other (everyone) in higher regards, and thus treat each other with more respect.

    I hate people. Do I disrespect? No. Quite the opposite. Now... about you killing yourself... :mrgreen:

    for one, by 2035, id hope we would have some means of detering such an asteroid hit. or blowing it up, or whatever. but if we dont, staying inlind wont exactly help. because if it hits water, which is very likely, it will still hit land. itll flash boil the water and slam into the sea floor. massive earthquakes worldwide. then shit gets kicked up, blocks the sun, ect, ect. same way the dinosaurs died. the asteriod that wiped them out hit water, in the gulf of mexico i believe.

    "Initially the collision was predicted for 2028, but the latest calculations show that in 2028 the asteroid will only pass very close to Earth. However, Shor says that his research predicts that the asteroid’s orbit could change and it may return in seven years this time crashing into the Earth’s surface."

    Did anyone else read? Shor, the researcher, is banking on the fact that the comet "COULD" change its course to a seeminly unknown course, that will result in a collision with the earth seven years later.

    Obviously the course that the comet is on now is no immediate threat, its simply if the comet changes courses to a course that would result in collision. You know what the chances of that happening are when there's an infinite amount of courses that the comet could take? I like my odds.

    What does him hating the world have anything to do with his life or death? Maybe its enjoyable for people like Steve to hate the world and view himself as an individual set amongst an infinite group of morons. Some find joy in hate and thus it becomes love to them. "There's a thin line between love and hate."

    This is one of those things where, even if the billion to one chance that it DOES hit Earth comes to pass, who cares. It's not like you can do anything about a meteor hitting the planet, so why bother worrying about it. And wtf is MOSNEWS anyway? Sounds like some Russian scientists are just looking to grab some attention.

    I believe the ol' saying is true.
    If we are gonna worry about stuff like this it's going to be a waste of time.
    Just live life like you didn't know this was going to happen and carry on. No sense of freaking out and the such - if there is a way to prevent it, we will just find it. If not, well, let's carry on, have a drink and say it was one hell of a ride ^^
