On July 3, asteroid 2004 XP14 will be whizzing past the Earth. It is half mile in diameter, and is under close watch by a concerned team of astronomers because of the possibility that it might impact with Earth during this century, even though a thorough study and analysis of its course and orbit concluded that humanity is not yet in danger. It will hit Earth's orbit at only 268,624 km high in the sky and this is why is considered a "Potentially Hazardous Asteroid." The latest calculations show that 2004 XP14 will pass closest to Earth at 04:25 UT on July 3 (12:25 a.m. EDT or 9:25 p.m. PDT on July 2). The asteroid's distance from Earth at that moment will be 268,624-miles (432,308 km), or just 1.1 times the Moon's average distance from Earth.

Scientists plan to use a giant radar beacon at the Goldstone Observatory in the Mojave Desert to bounce signals off the asteroid as it flies by. The asteroid will look like a streaking dot against a background of stationary stars..

The best way to catch them is from public toilet seats.

that would have been 5:25 this morning I thing GMT.

1.1 times further then the moon is a safe margin I would say. But observation at the close range will help them refine the orbit so they can better predict passes in the future.

So that's what the voice was all about! I heard this HUGE voice say, "Damn it all! Missed again!" and couldn't figure out what was going on.

Well if the voice said "Jesus Christ, I missed again" it would have been Gods voice, but I dunno who that was; maybe the Devil?

Why would He want it to end? He's doing pretty well at the moment, especially in the White House.

Remember,

Jesus Saves,
The Devil Invests.

Jesus saves, but Charlton gets it in on the rebound!

LTS











For people over a certain age or in countries other than the UK, Charlton refers to Jack or Bobby Charlton, brothers who were pretty good at football. That's real football, not the Colonial varieties.

I only know of Jack Charlton from Christy Moore's hilarious "Joxer Goes to Stuttgart". God, I love that man. ;)

My child, the great holy prophet Jimi Hendrix predicted this. It takes a rock star to predict a rock. Read all about it here:

Hmm. Well, that's a whole new set of problems to worry about on a daily basis, isn't it?

Heh!

I figure I'll die when it's my time to. If it's by a meteor strike or the devastation that follows one...fine. Not much I can do about that anyway, is there?
