Does anybody remember that '70s movie Meteor, where there's an asteroid heading toward the Earth and we have to shoot nukes at it to blow it out of the sky? At the very end they flash this message on the screen revealing that we have a real-life anti-meteor plan in case something like this happens for real.

Why do I mention this? Hey, this is the fuckin' Off-Topic board. I can say whatever I feel like!

I would think a healthy delivery of nukes to the underside of the suckah should do at least enough damage to send the thing elsewhere.

Though I did hear one goofball say he wanted to paint it white so it would bounce off the atmosphere. Isn't that a little like saying we should wear helmets? Why wait til it's so close?

But hey, that'd be off-topic... oh waaaaait.

No, there not going to paint it white so it will bounce
off the atmosphere, painting it white would cause the
sun to have a much greater impact on it, putting it off
course. But I dont think there going to paint it white.
I just don't see the NASA crew in space suits with paint
buckets and rollers complaining about there union dues
and there bitchy wife. Sorry, that was a little sterotypical,
if anyone here is a painter I'm sorry. About your wife
being such a bitch, I mean.

I personally like the nuke idea, but thats just because
nuclear arms facinate me. Like the dead walking
around facinates me, but facinates me never the less.

Apparently we're not going to die after all. The Mexicans got it wrong, or so it seems, though some company is nonetheless working on a method to send a probe out into space, land on any asteroid out there and set off a rocket thruster that would push it marginally off course, if needed. Kind of like the old spaceship in Asteroids, except it doesn't blow up if it gets hit by one.

So we're safe until 2069, when some other rock is apparently going to kill us all.
