    Hate to break this to you, but even a candy asteroid at orbital speeds will be catastrophic. As a matter of fact, most asteroids or comets are very loose aggregations of smaller rocks and ices. According to some studies, this would be more damaging than a solid rock of that size.

    Why don't you ask a dinosaur?

    .....oh wait, you can't they're extinct because of an asteroid strike off the coast of Mexico 65 million years ago.

    Yes, running around yelling "THE SKY IS FALLING THE SKY IS FALLING!" is pointless and counter-productive, but denying the fact that it not only can but HAS happened - and more than once - is foolhardy.


    P.S.: "Feces" has no "i" in it. ;)
     
  5. :(

    But I mean, it would be pretty awesome.


    I mean, come on.


    Come on.
     
  6. Never said it was gonna happen...but it looks like this one probably wont hit ;) But if it does and we both survive, you have permission to slap me :D
     
  7. does our government have a contingency plan for such a thing?
     
  8. Probably not...but once they do, they'll push NASA to think of a plan to try and blow it up or tell us all goodbye!

    Yeah, we're watching that one pretty closely, too. Looks pretty scary. We're several (something like 12) years overdue for a major storm. Frederick hit a few years before I was born, but I know power and water were out in some areas for several weeks, and it took years to rebuild the bridge to Dauphin Island.

  19. What I don't get from this theory is why so many other species have survived? Some reptilian species are even older than the dinos!?!
