    Maybe it will hit the Middle East and make everyone’s life easy and finally… The Mid East conflict will end… Strap on your skates boys, it’s gonna be cold for a few hundred years.

    I think this is funny:

    [i]"The error in our knowledge of where NT7 will be on 1 February, 2019, is large, several tens of millions of kilometres," he said.[/i]

    But that must be close in "space"-terms, eh?

    I’m.

    Well, I think it’s actually been downgraded from 0.06 to a negative number now… but I’ll say it’s a 2 on the Torino scale (pulled out of my ass though).

    I have a Torino scale at home. It says I’m about 13.
