It better wait until after October 21st, and after 2012. If I get blown up, I'd rather not have Harold Camping and all the 2012 prophesy crazy people proven right in the process.

I would share the article with family and friends on Facebook, but I have far too many of the "Oh Em Gee! The sky is falling! We're all gonna die!" type of family and friends. I'll spare myself the strain on my eye-rolling muscles. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:"> Sure, I'm pretty certain we'll get struck <i>some</i> day... but I suspect it won't do us much good to worry about it because we'd be screwed anyway. We'll just have to sit back and enjoy the show. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/popcorn.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Popcorn">

If we were actually in any danger of being hit by a large celestial body, we'd have heard about it months or years ago in the news, as NASA is quite capable of detecting these things are large distances.

there's an infinite number of "large" objects out there that could collide with the earth. maybe they'll all be discovered and maybe not

There is absolutely zero threat, people are nuts sometimes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
The thing is the size of a bus. Even if it were to somehow hit Earth, it would get so torn up by the atmosphere that it would be reduced to pea sized fragments, if anything before it got to the surface.<br><br>
It's not even going to hit us anyways. Little Mr./Mrs. Bus-sized-asteroid is just going to go WHEE around us. It's so far away that you'll apparently need a somewhat large telescope to even see it, at night, when it's directly over you. 1/4 the light of the dimmest of stars, apparently.
