I was wondering why I was felling lighter it must be the gravitational pull.

Just a thought: All it would take would be a glancing collision between asteroid Florence and some other surprise asteroid and Florence could crash into Earth and produce an extinction-level event. Improbable? Definitely. But astronomers have been surprised by asteroids coming from the direction of the Sun countless times.

The odds of a collision like that are probably somewhere between 1-in-a-billion and 1-in-a-trillion. But the odds are definitely not zero. Just something to think about over the next day or two.

insaneai When does will smith save us from an asteroid mother fucker? Will smith saves us from drug smugglers, alien invasions, and the zombie apocalypse. He isn't equipped to fly up there and drill. Bruce Willis is a 4th generation driller, he been drillin all his life.

holygod Will Smith isn't equipped to fly up there and drill?  Since fucking when?  Have you seen any of the shit he had access to in Independence Day or MIB?  Fuck Independence day, just the little mosquito gun in MIB is enough with a friggin scooter to just pop up there and dust the thing.  The only enjoyable part of Bruce doing it is watching him get his ass kicked but all that does is drag it out so you feel like you got your $15 worth of popcorn out of the theater.

insaneai You dumb shit. A fucking nuclear bomb set off on the asteroid wouldn't do anything. You could fire all you got at her and she'd just smile and keep coming. You gotta drill. Like the fire cracker making your wife open your pickle jar or some shit. Ain't no mosquito gun or noisy cricket gonna do more damage then a nuclear bomb.

holygod So jump in the intergalactic prison transfer vehicle with a shrink ray and a cricket.  Problem solved.  

It's also more economical.  Could you imagine the cost of mopping Bruce's forehead now that it doesn't seem to stop until you start calling it neck?

sunny I've been trying.  I can't seem to achieve a level of absurdity consistently enough to break the cycle here.  Look for completely off the wall shit from me in the future; it's coming.
