Not to worry, it was just an observational fly by of our Dinosaur Overlords.

They'll be back, after we restore earth's atmosphere to a dinosaur-friendly state with global warming.

I wish a chunk of the asteroid would slam into CNN headquarters. Maybe I'd watch CNN

CNN points out that "its flyby is the closest ever predicted for an object this large."

So here's my question: If this asteroid were heading toward earth, do the military or scientists have, like, a plan to save the planet? Is there plan to shoot a big rocket at the next one if it is going to hit us, to change its course or blow the thing up?

I would watch CNN burn.

But only if that Piers Morgan guy was still inside.

@6:

Complaining about a public blog's "staggering irrelevance" is like masturbating with a handful of razor blades: it CAN be done, but only a complete idiot with a massive masochism complex would WANT to do it.

@10 only if you pay them. They're both Directors and Producers now, not cheap Actors.

So we're still here? I've been setting up for the Home Show all morning.

And don't mind the troll. He's just vexed because the Seattle Times (speaking of irrelevant) is now smaller than The Little Nickel.

From the asteroid's perspective, we're the one who almost hit it.
