    You know that old saying about "the living will envy the dead"? If that's the case, I might as well just relax and become part of the latter.

    How would stocking up on canned food help anything if the thing does hit?

    You know all those movies where an asteroid is gonna hit the Earth and the government goes and builds a massive shelter for a select group of individuals with the abilities to rebuild society after impact? I always thought it would be funny if ground zero ended up being the shelter.

    You could probably build a sweet bunker out of 20 years of collected food cans.

    It's been reported that America will be sending Space Bat on a separate mission to stop the Russians from fucking things up.

    If Bay's still telling him what to do, that shuttle better be Sky Lynx.

    Well, it's rather brutal here. Right now we are advising all our clients to put everything they've got into canned food and shotguns.

    From what I read an impatct would be bad, but not "end of civilzation" bad. Just pray you are not at ground zero.
