    Best to spend the time prepping for tornadoes or the crashing of the dollar.
    Or the crashing of a tornado into a dollar!

    April 1, 2013.

    Washington, D.C.: Today President Paul announced that the giant asteroid, named Fed1984, will be attacked by an elite band of small bong-watered powered space interceptors lead by Bruce Willis and Rand Paul. President Paul first announced that this would not be necessary if we only stopped bombing other planets and put the blame on the United States of America.

    Task Force Aqua Buddha is scheduled for an April 2nd take off after a Firefly marathon and a Kirk vs. Picard debate by President Paul's cabinet.
    Once more, with feeling, "am I free to go?"

    My friend who used to be a navy SEAL said we already have one of these so I am not worried.

    If Paul happens to win the nomination, it'll be the only way there is a chance of someone other than President Obama in 2013.

    Are you sure? I ran into a guy at a gun shop who said he was a Recon Sniper and that he'd been tasked with shooting it down with nuclear tipped .50 cal rounds. Said he had to climb the Matterhorn to take up his firing position on the summit, and that he took the shot two weeks ago, we can't know it yet because the impact won't be until Jul 4th.
    He had to be the real deal. He had on jungle boots, DCU trousers, and a green t shirt.
    Tolerance is rarely practiced by those who demand it.

    Man, I think I know his brother. That's him. We are cool, no worries, move along, nothing to see here, return to your homes.

    Blast it or paint it: Asteroid to threaten Earth in 2013

    Blast it or paint it: Asteroid to threaten Earth in 2013 — RT

    Looks like a job for Sherwin-Williams. Found by a group of Spanish Astronomers last month, NASA said it would take two years to build a spaceship to go up and somehow move it further away from Earth.

    The asteroid, known as DA14, will pass by our planet in February 2013 at a distance of under 27,000 km (16,700 miles). This is closer than the geosynchronous orbit of some satellites.
    Some Native Americans believed that a spirit lived inside each kernel of popcorn. When heated, the spirit grew angry and would eventually burst out of its home and into the air as a disgruntled puff of steam. Some what like a liberal.

    It'll be fun to watch if it does come that close. If it comes closer, I like things that go boom

    We'll all be dead by the end of 2012 so why worry about it?
    A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals. And you know it.
