The article was kind of interesting in the manner they went on and on about there being no chance of it hitting earth. It left me thinking why bother even writing an article if that’s the case.
But then how do they fill page space and sell advertising copy if they can’t get people to read their articles? People won’t spend time on an article about how many segments make up flies’ eyes. Asteroids destroying all life on earth except cockroaches – just days away?!? Now THAT sells advertising copy by keeping up readership statistics! Me? If it happens, I hope it hits square in the southeast US. If not, oh well…. Another doomsday story down the drain. I like the family picnic idea, with a good supply of binoculars on hand for entertainment. And some good steaks cooked rare before we’re all well done.
