Giant Ass-teroid

Scientists say that a large asteroid will pass within 22,600 miles of Earth on Friday the 13th, 2029. That figure is but the width of a hair astronomically. If their calculations are off by just a smidgen, it could be a lousy weekend.

It will be the end of the week, allright...unless we send up Bruce Willis, Ben Afleck and Steve Buchemi on a space shuttle to nuke it....

Is there anything that can be done? I don't think so ... but maybe some of the money Bush wants to use to send astronauts to the moon (which has already been done, by the way!) could help people look into this problem ... I guess we have to hope that they have very accurate calculators.
