    Giant asteroid possibly on collision course with Earth - CNN iReport

    I don't know whether to investigate further, or just brush it off since the date doesn't exist.

    :D

    It just means a smaller asteroid is going to hit before that, and cause our rotation to be off...instead of 365.25 days to rotate around our sun, it's going to take 422 (I made that up) days, thus we'll need to add a few extra days to each month.

    With the new longer rotation, it'll allow that bigger asteroid to hit us, instead of missing us.

    Didn't you know? They were going to re-do the whole calendar in 2039 and every month will have 40 days. So when another biblical flood comes around, one can really say it rained all month long :D

    Maybe there is an odd orbital pattern that will add the 4 extra days? ha

    I think it's a typo, it's actually Mar. 31st 2045*... so at least we have a few extra years...








    *based on no factual information.

    Isn't "global warming" supposedly going to kill us long before that anyway? :rolleyes2 

    That seems like a reasonable possibility, actually. Alternately, the date could be March 5th 2041; whoever typed it in was intending to write either "March 5 2041" or "3/5/2041" and conflated the two in an unusual way.

    I'm pretty gullible so with the typo aside I thought this was true (at first).

    If it was true people would party, riot, eat loads of cholesterol and tell their boss what they really think of them (in 20 years).

    lol CNN iReports. It's a user-submitted blog-style section where people can report on their own news. It's nothing.
