Yep, We could have been Killed
And none of us would have been the wiser. We would have just woken up dead.
Who knows maybe we are all dead now and don’t know it. Well if we are still alive, and sometimes I wonder, There’s always next time. Of course we may not hear about it until after it happens. Which means we may not hear about it at all. Which means if you can’t read this you are dead. Which means if you are dead and you are reading this. Then there’s life after death or would that be life after life? Which means if there’s life after life, is there death? Oh, how about death after death! Now that’s scary! Take a look at this article about a near miss asteroid. We could have been killed! Notice the date of publishing. After the fact. So if the reader was expecting to hear about a life and death situation ahead of time. Good Luck with that! This writer hopes that if something like this scenario should ever happen again, and it will 2036. We might be given enough of a warning to at least be able to bend over and kiss our own butts good-bye. We can probable thank our governments for not wanting to panic us. You know, they are so kind and really, really care about We the People, don’t you think? Worried about little old me and whether I might panic, and wet my depends, because, We could have been Killed! Hell, I might as well bend over now and kiss my butt good-bye right now, that way I’m ahead of the game. Of course you have free will, one can always decide when to kiss their butt good-bye or somebody else’s for that matter. That is if one knows about it ahead of time.
Come to think of it. The reader even has the option of creating a Parallel Reality or Dimensional Shift. Where your butt has already been kissed good-bye and now you can go on with your life. Wow, this parallel reality stuff is pretty cool. We could have been killed, but we can go on with our lives. Well isn’t that special!
Here’s the Article better late than never, We could have been Killed!
(Newser) – The asteroid Apophis, whose reported threat to our planet has attracted widespread attention, is even larger than scientists believed, according to new images. Europe’s Herschel Space Observatory says the asteroid is some 1,066 feet wide, some 20% wider than previously thought. That “translates into a 75% increase in our estimates of the asteroid’s volume or mass,” says the study’s leader. Fortunately, we survived yesterday’s passage, and reports that there was a 2.7% chance it would hit Earth in 2029 have been debunked.
But scientists are still investigating the asteroid, which will pass near us again in 2036, LiveScience notes. At that point, there remains a one-in-200,000 chance of a collision, the BBC reports. “There is a small region of space—something we call a keyhole—and if it passes through that keyhole in 2029, it will come back and hit us on 13 April in 2036,” says a scientist. It would carry 100 times the energy of our biggest nuclear weapons, he adds. “While there is no cause for alarm, similarly there is no room for complacency,” writes Stuart Clark at the Guardian.
There is so much just wrong with this article, like scientists believed. Since when has a scientist believed in anything they can’t repeat in a labs. Plus, as it turns out their belief was wrong and then the statement there’s a 2.7% chance it would hit the earth in 2029 have been debunked. What the hell does that mean? Now is there’s a greater chance and lesser chance. What? Don’t you see the sleight of hand here. They want the reader to make an assumption. Without any given facts. Just like if you had a sock, a shoe and a sock. What would you be missing? Well most of us readers would assume a shoe, Right? Wrong! Your missing a foot. Give me an asteroid, but we have to pick our battles.
This writer just loves the last statement. “While there is no cause for alarm, similarly there is no room for complacency”. First off, how can one be alarmed if one doesn’t know. What, there is cause for alarm after the fact? Duh! Oh, I think I be all scared now. Because We could have been killed yesterday. Notice the underlined statement “We survived yesterday’s passage”. This guy is brilliant! Isn’t that rather obvious? We are reading his article. Sometimes I believe that when somebody of this caliber of a reporter has a thought. They should just keep it to themselves! Or even better just let that thought go! To make room for something like a fact. Oh, and the best is “Similarly there is no room for complacency”.
