On the news this evening was a story about a giant meteor heading toward earth.
It has a 250,000 chance of hitting earth in the year 2019.
To put that in perspective, we are 136 times more likely to be wiped out by this space rock than win the Taiwan lottery (if we entered).
We are 5 times more likey to be killed by it than die in a China Airlines flight.
When you consider the amount of effort people expend trying to win the lottery or for that matter improving air safety you would kind of hope that a little more energy would be expended on protecting the entire world from a disaster more likey than many forms of cancer.
The purpose of this post is to recruit volunteers to be trained up and rocketed on to the surface of this mother!
I only hope there’s a few Americans out there who can take up the mantle on this one. You know who you are fellas. O’Brian are you ready man?! I want you to lead this band of no hopers. When you get up there fellas you know there’s a good chance none of you will be commin back a live. I want ya to put those kinds o’ thoughts outa ya minds and concentrate on the job at hand. Which is…? Chipin’ away at it.That’s right boys we ganna be given ya picks, shovels and crow bars and we want ya to pry that mother in two. Hey and do what ya can to leave Thyrdrail stranded on it. Give him a couple a flags to hold and than just pry him off in to space no harm done there. O’Brian if you make it back we’ll be proud of ya man.If ya don’t we’ll what can we say …thanks buddy.
