It's probably nothing.... Gigantic asteroid near miss coming this Thursday

Is this the SMOD (Sweet Meteor of Death) talked about in 2012?

Is the nightmare almost over?

Ming the Merciless of the Planet Mongo has plans beyond the ken of mere mortals.
Asteroid chucking is a game for teenagers on Mongo.
In the Galactic Series of the Year 29763 Mongo defeated Kragon the Rotten to gain the title.
You oughta see the belt buckle.

If this happens, in the interim left to them we will witness Marxists busily attempting to lay blame on their enemies, who will soon expand to include everybody else, however briefly.

Thanks. I've completely stopped worrying now.

After the environmental studies are completed, the public comment period has been honored, and the Davis-Bacon prevailing collective bargaining wage level hiring has been completed (with appropriate outreach to disadvantaged communities), the crews can commence working on the high-lift system for deploying the asteroid defenses. No need to fret!

Yes Rob, exactly - Bush did it and Reagan caused the AIDS.

A couple of years notice of a collision??? I doubt it. I suspect what the author really means is fund me under the promise that I can give us years ahead warning of an impending collision. But I doubt we will actually be able to predict the difference between a near miss (which we have had plenty of) and a hit with anything more then a few weeks months at most warning. What can we do with warning, even years ahead? Nothng!!!

Could the artist move that impact point over to DC please.

Without Mr. Spock to decode the glyphs on the obelisk... we're doomed.

If you guys send me ten bucks each, cash in old bills, I will guarantee that any comet now approaching Earth will be diverted.
I have an in with Kragon the Rotten, Fourth Emperor of the Arachnid Galaxy, Ruler of All That Crawl Upon the Land or Swim in the Sea.
His expeditionary forces have already established forward observation bases among us. Look to Roswell, Sedona, Area 51.
His anaphasic cosmic plasma frequency inverters can move mountains, part seas, erect huge stone towers.
How you think Moses got across the Red Sea? You think them pyramids built themselves? Bwahahaha.
Oh, the money? Just stick it in an envelope and leave it on your front porch. We'll get it.
