Giant asteroid possibly on collision course with Earth
 
This one is a little scarier warnings from the past!

Quote:

If astronomers are right, all life on this planet could be extinguished in less than 30 years from now. Scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory have detected a large object the size of Manhattan possibly on a collision course with Earth. Using their Near-Earth Object Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (NEOWISE), the 10-mile wide object was found approximately 51 million miles from Earth. Scientists believe that during a close encounter with Mars, the asteroid was nudged slightly off its usual orbit and may currently be on a high speed collision course with our fragile planet.

Doesn't matter where it hits we would all be toast. At least we have 30 years though.

It is time to fund NASA more, and fund our Military Space Weapons program. If this thing hits earth, we are all dead. An asteroid that size would wipe everything out, it's collision would darken our planet and potentially upset the earth's plates, essentially sending us into an earthquake/volcanic nightmare. What if it hit the ocean? You think that pacific tsunami was bad? Imagine a 700ft high wall of water hitting every coast around the epicenter of the impact. Not to mention the dust and radiation it will bring and stir up into our atmosphere. We need to develop a weapon strong enough to blow this thing to smithereens. An asteroid that size, will end all life as we know it. Start building now.

Well, I was genuinely worried. I saw the CNN logo, read the article and thought, this must be true. I then read the comments below, saw the March 35th thing, reread it and have no idea how I missed that. I guess I should pay more attention next time.

Are these the scientist who forecasted the meteor shower on Saturday morning?

It was supposed to be up to 100 meteor per hour and I didn't see a single meteorite.

I'm disappointed. There was not one mention of Bruce Willis or Aerosmith in the comments.

I dunno, seemed to be a few that didn't catch the "March 35th" or whatever date it was. Pretty sure I wouldn't have either at 1:30am.
